On the other hand, if you believe God is bigger than we can imagine, and is not constrained by religious dogma, you have as good a chance as any at a happy, thriving relationship. As someone born and raised in the church this has been very difficult to moderate and there is some social pressure to become more involved. My husband's simply daily things, like grocery shopping, cooking, waking up with me to make coffee in the morning-are far from unnoticed. Mormons can be pretty crazy without it. Men and women must be willing to accept what they know to be true. It certainly isn't easy. The important thing is whether or not your spouse will support you in your endevours to live your religion. We strive to improve each other.
Also, as Joanna points out, men and women already inhabit a separate culture. Why Mormons don't hate gay people. That's a really sad story. And, as I was writing the reply, above, those thoughts went through my head. It's easy to forget why I chose to be with him in the first place. If you are worries about her or her family trying to convert you, be honest. Ragonk If you don't get it, never mind. Every new set will see your man with fresh and hungry eyes as a potential golden contact. If you can genuinely deconvert her then cool. Not sure if you are, or not.
It'll reinforce the wisdom of running from this disaster in the making. I could never do it. All this actually needs is some stamps, pre-printed envelopes, and a few seconds to dash off a note, kiss the paper, and drop it in a mailbox. It sucks but ultimately what Mormonism does to people is it makes them value adherence to church more than their relationships with people. I also found this interesting and how I found it was just on the web while typing doctors and wive's roles.
And by joining I mean become just as fanatic in it as she is All her life she's been taught that she needs to be married in a Mormon temple Wife left when I came out If her family are all Traditional Believing Mormons, they will try to convert you. I had many, many friends who moved this quickly during courtship, too. She, her family, and her friends all believe that she can't get into the Celestial Kingdom VIP Heaven unless she is "sealed" to a Mormon husband. I knew a couple in my last ward who got married in their mid 20's. Ultimately we broke up. My partner finishes her training in five years and she has expressed a strong desire to have children then. Catholics basically married catholics and protestants basically married protestants. I feel a sense of freedom would come with it, but I am also afraid of what this could mean for us in the long run. Please start another thread and continue the conversation. If everything she is taught is correct and the Mormon church is "true" she should be able to research any anti-Mormon books or movies and prove their criticisms are lies.
