He has no vices, is the happiest person I know, is a healthy role model of manhood for my teen daughter and loves me to the depth of his soul. In many ways, she was everything that I ever wanted in a spouse, but in other ways she was not what I ever expected. Other lazy Mormon girls turn feminist, many thousands of them. Having seen many examples of the disaster it becomes when a member spouse pushes, coerces, ultimatums the non-member spouse into being baptized, I have very assiduously steered clear of those methods from the start. She will want her kids blessed, baptized, taking temple trips to baptize for the dead, hold the priesthood, a bishop will ask you sons and daughters if they masterbate and punish them if they do, etc. My advice would be to become as familiar as possible with her schedule, and then plan activities that will allow you both to get to know each other better, avoid movies. I'm am dating a guy that is studying for his mcat he only has a couple weeks to go until he writes but I find myself getting mad and upset over little things. 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. Lack of motivation and endless loneliness that has caused me to be a lazy 15 pounds heavier woman. As a parent, we hope our children will make life choices that will give them the greatest chance of happiness.
I don't think you should abandon the relationship just because she is lds. As these are probably the two most important things to you, it will most likely, be a very difficult decisionвfollow your heart and the spirit. What about the folks at church. At least I know that there are people who truly understand the medical life. No one knows your situation the way you do. But of course this does not mean that mixed religion children cannot grow up to be LDS stalwarts. Neither of our children ever considered medicine as a career after seeing how much their dad missed out on. This girl is also a real person, not a caricature of a cult member, and even if the ultimate result is a breakup, she deserves to be treated with compassion and respect. To me, life is all about growthвso ask yourselfвwill I grow more staying single and focusing my life on the church, or will I grow more branching out, looking at life from different perspectives, and allowing myself to see options I have not yet considered.
You love a medical guy. We're generally very happy when we're together, but like everyone else, it isn't always easy to find the time between his schedule and mine. However, a few months before her exams she suddenly said that she didn't think we were right for each other and broke up with me. Its was written in shorthand so its hard to read. She cannot get into the top echelons of heaven without being sealed to a worthy priesthood holder in the temple for time and all eternity. Mormonism is a lot more controlling and has a lot more downsides. Very wise words when tell others to take a very cold hard look at there life. Just like having children, you don't know what you have until you live it. I would show her this recent post for example: Her family will also be thinking about this and will talk to you about it when you spend time with them. I'm not so sure.
I won't break his heart not after all the faith he has in me. I am a nurse and have been for 10 years. If you marry him, you are committing to accepting him without the church and all that this entails. I wish you all well on your recovery from this particularly vile church. She won't marry you. For any woman who does not want to sacrifice her career goals…. If you are not old enough to consider marriage, you should be careful about having a serious, exclusive relationship. My husband, regardless of religious affiliation, is a beloved son of our Heavenly Father who is very much worthy of my love, affection and dedication. Here's my advice though: It doesn't sound like you want that though, so you're going to have to talk to him. We have 2 beautiful children and he has a daughter from his previous mariage he rarely sees.
