So basically we were lies to for years. After a lot of thought during that relationship with a non-Mormon, I laid out exactly what struggles I was probably going to face: I was worried about my own faith. It does not come from common religion or personality or even values; it only comes through mutual self transcendence.
Bet as Joanna has said there are some things you should think carefully about в and this needs to be done with your head, not your heart. Not in endless discussions of temple marriage, not ever. And don't get hung up on all the "lofty doc" stuff. It is always a nice idea to plan for your date in advance. So I knew what I was getting into when I married him though I secretly hoped he would still convert back. The Mormon university BYU is quickly falling due to these feminists. If you can't do that, realizing that your partner may never come around to your side of things, you are not ready to marry this person.
It was not just frustrating but also saddening and stressful. Just a woman who envies the good life of being a medical doctor's wife. What are the strategies for not taking the absence personally I mentioned above that I'm cognizant of my SO's constraints, but it's definitely hard I have been married to an Interventional Radiologist 30 yrs. The thing I worry about is the reason that we are together is that I don't want to build my own life. So, kudos to you for having such a wonderful relationship for so long and getting through step 1 and 2 and matching. If you don't mind some slightly off-topic advice, I can assure you that you will meet plenty of other beautiful, interesting women going forward. Marriage is unbelievably amazing and indescribably painful; I have been at it for 28 years with my soul mate. We all know people who know that the gospel is true but they will not accept it. I think love and caring can be more important. Even without temple covenants marriage is a noble and worthy institution.
Some Mormon girls succumb to worldly laziness. Do you masturbate, ever. She was fine marrying in an LDS church instead of the temple, didn't want to convert me, and most importantly didn't try to change my beliefs or opinions. Mormon's view marriages outside the temple to be counterfeit and you can't get into the temple without converting to the religion. The two of you can get married in the temple and live together forever for eternity. No one understands our lifestyle or how difficult it can be, not even my best friend and or family members no matter how hard they try to.
