She drove an old Dodge Neon during her cash-strapped residency and fellowship. But marriages don't last if you have to hold back ugly, sarcastic comments when your partner attends religious services or defends religious beliefs. I also expected that my spouse would be temple worthy and that I would get married in the temple, which was not the case. Over the past year he has been telling me that he feels second to my schoolwork and my other responsibilities. Even without temple covenants marriage is a noble and worthy institution. There is no such thing as a perfect Mormon family- regardless of whether the parents are sealed or not. You don't need to worry about living paycheck to paycheck.
Now 13 years later, my son is a teenager. Here are my thoughts as someone who grew up with a non-mormon father and as someone who married a non-mormon girl. I too suffer the same problem. Do you have any specific suggestions for discussion about content on LDS. Marriage is hard, period. If you think your girlfriend's resistance to being exposed to anything critical of Mormonism sounds cult-like, you are right. Don't put them through that either. I feel like this pressure of finding a residency has already taken a toll in our relationship and somewhat "controlled" us for so long that I am already so tired of it.
I was not moving with him until there was a promise and it would still take me a few months to find a job and relocate. She never mentioned TSCC. As such, it tends to attract the young and insecure. I could go on, but this should give you the idea. I'm not quite bitter but a tad fed up as have given up family, career, friends and started afresh x 2 again to be left alone at the other side of the planet with two young kids, moving house and setting up home with just 4 suitcases. I was spiritually prepared to receive the answer that I sought. With that being said, I have long considered myself just a tad outside super TBM since we watched Game of Thrones, drank energy drinks, and occasionally stayed in my running clothes sans garments to do yard work. But I also know that He loves us so much that He would never take away our ability to choose for ourselves. Great payback for my support during residency and multiple moves.
She's told me the church is one of the most important things to her, but from what I've researched already there's no way I would subject my future children to this culture. Where there is temptation Hardworking or not, many of them work with beautiful women and actually do carry out affairs. It sounds like you have found a good one. The church really needs to tailor to more partial LDS families, imho.
