Long story short, everyone is dead on. It sucks but ultimately what Mormonism does to people is it makes them value adherence to church more than their relationships with people. You should be fine as long as you stick to the lines you have laid out. It's a great idea to know where you stand so that you'll be prepared when this comes up in conversation. As a budding feminist, I left the church in my teens. Unfortunately I've been sort of seeing a girl who is basically a real deal Mormon. I have never been your typical domestically skilled stay at home mom. We also noticed a change in all of our parents and children alike moods. I've a,ready been a single parent once. Good luck to you and your boyfriend.
I don't want to make a mistake by leaving everything I have going on for me for him. There may be underlying personality similarities, but if the answer to "what shall I do next" is always trumped by a Morman frame of reference for one partner, but not the other, conflict is inevitable. I've been in a similar situation before.
I wanted to thank all the respondents and the blog author for sharing. It's a heart-wrenching story. When we started dating, he was in his fellowship. The Mormon university BYU is quickly falling due to these feminists. That conversation prompted me to find and read through this sub, and there's some seriously disturbing shit here. Am I a homewrecker. I am also a pharmacist and a mother of two boys. I was sure I was just over sensitive until I read your posts.
Work out as many as you can before marriage happens. I explained to her that from my perspective, if a religious person does something good, you can't trust them because they're doing it for the wrong reasons: When an atheist does something good, you know they're not doing it for any reason other than to help someone else. Take the crazy and add a ton of even crazier shit on on top and Your girlfriend literally believes in a book of scripture that was produced from a rock in Josephs Hat. Married men should not reach out to vulnerable women who buy their story of being lonely bc they are married to a woman who should have been a librarian. This also implies, there is no reason for me to further my education or career because he would prefer I have children immediately. Matching caused a lot of drama in our relationship. The important part of finding a partner to marry does not, in my opinion, revolve around whether or not you are of the same religion. This also means giving her something specific to do. My boyfriend and I are both in medical school and it is so difficult to manage a relationship while surviving the class load.
