Forty plus years later I met my incredibly wonderful fabulous Mormon husband. I wanted to be able to fully share my faith with my spouse, but this expectation was now up in the air. I overheard her once saying, "being married to a doctor isn't what you think it is" and this is what I think she was referring to. Some people really can't wait, others can, and there is nothing wrong with either of those. Girls aren't socially required to be missionaries, unlike men.
I can't emphasize this strongly enough. A lot will fall into the shoulder of the other partner who is not a doctor. Should one belief system or lack of one take priority and why. We have been together for around three years and I feel like now more than ever he expects me to just do things his way and not have an opinion. The truth is I miss being together. By that I mean that we ought to consider simply marrying within the faith and in the temple for all the reasons that people have given. Why is it up to the wife or girlfriend to make it work and face being lonely forever.
I hope you can make this work out. There will be pressure to go to church, marry in the temple, Yada Yada You will want to make sure you're ready to battle this for years, maybe a lifetime. And if you can make it to the Tree of Life and still be with your partner, guess what. If she is full on Mormon, this relationship will go one of two ways: You will convert and change your entire lifestyle and personality to conform with her expectations never to deconvert or you will face severe penalitesor you will break up because you won't convert and change everything about yourself. I adore the show New Normal and one of my favorite episodes is when Bryan decides to go back to church and the Father is so cool with him.
