I know "Meet the Mormons" isn't what I'm looking for I went through a very similar experience earlier this year and the community was extremely helpful. At the risk of overloading this post, I'm going to copy and paste here, a Reddit comment that I made in this exmo sub the other day. I love him more than anything, but lately, the lack of real time together and the stress of his work impacting how I am made to feel like I'm on eggshells when we do get together almost seems like to much to bear. I am so confused. Can anyone suggest specific talking points from content on LDS. There is NO guarantee that marrying a returned missionary RM in the temple equates with love and happiness. When we obsess over it we start acting like a customer in a clothing store wondering what he or she will look like if they wear that particular wardrobe. It broke my shelf, we left as an entire family, and our marriage is better than ever. I'm in the exact same pulling-out-my-hair situation that you are.
Too often, I think, priesthood holders think that being overly controlling, they are simply wielding their authority in the home. Her church is more important to her than you are ever will beplain and simple. Thanks - I searched but couldn't find it. It can burn, and it can burn you hardcore.
Im sooooo happy i've found this blog!!. I get that a lot to people saying 'be happy you married a doctor' 'u will have a glamorous wonderful life' they would not get it unless they be one-that is being a docs wife, the loneliness is the worst especially when your newly wedded and 2nd month of ur marriage he has to go for his night calls in dec, which includes our first christmas: I thought I was the only one who barely gets communication throughout the day, not married but am dating a surgeon and have for 6 years. It's what I agnostic atheist exmo do with my girlfriend reasonable TBM. These girls are nervous around non-Mormons. If she expresses interest in converting, be prepared to talk about your beliefs, and help her find ways to learn about and follow them. And on the other hand the thought of having to go through these residency years ahead haunts me.
I found that it worked just as well. He's not home much and his hours are crazy but, wow, I am one happy woman. Is it wrong that I feel guilty?. I was skeptical whether this would work with Mormon girlsв sheltered girls who would never step inside a dance club or be wooed by pickup artists.
