You've stated that she had numerous guys break up with her after she took sex off the table. Mormons love to have fun, but they prefer keeping it clean, respectful, and something that everyone can enjoy. As for me, I recall spending a lot of Sundays at sporting events with my dad. And here's an excellent video on the importance of religious freedom. Let me tell you, it is NOT any easier. He want to wait at least one year before he makes any decision he want to take it slow. Adding an interfaith element means you have many more adjustments to make. Don't put them through that either. But the lies sting some people. In retrospect, I believe I was being led to my current spouse.
Unless you convert she won't marry you, plain and simple. Mormons can be pretty crazy without it. My job starts soon and in January I get started on my masters degree at a new school. I am married to an ongologist for 16years. What if she absolutely despises sex. Then be clear you will never convert. I'm pretty disturbed by the level of dismissiveness seen in many of the comments here. About ten years ago, I realized I needed to quit qualifying my excellent husband who is a better man than many Mormon men I knowI realized I needed to raise my kids to think of him as completely equal to the men they knew at church. There are many good things. Great post and so very true.
So how do we approach saving a relationship with someone who has unrealistic expectations of what a long-term relationship looks like. I have been dating a surgeon and we are thinking about marriage. But I do believe in modern prophets and that God gives no commandment that is not for our own happiness. However, if you are a Catholic guy dating a Mormon girl, then remember that her parents may be averse to it. Sadly, my ward shuns us. But I was unusual in that I never really wanted to convert my husband I was worried I'd have to divorce him if he turned true Mormon and he didn't need me to believe way he does. I can honestly say I wish he stayed were he was it has been a long road. I am seeing one right now My late ex was a physician and I was with him through med school, internship, residency and 20 years of his own practice. When you make the best choice for you, blessings will follow. Joanna в this is one of your best.
The way he wanted to live his life, the family he wanted to have, the wife he dreamt of- matched the type of person I longed for. He then proceeded to beat the shit out of her for a decade. Good luck and my prayers are with you. Am I that woman. I respect what my husband does but I have nothing but my pets and a dusty Ivy Leaguedegree.
