Right now she won't even watch a movie. Maybe there is wisdom behind some of the peculiarities. This is wonderful and in accordance with the desires of a loving Father in Heaven, but it can turn a marriage on its ear, if the spouse is unprepared. I want so much to be supportive, but since my family is gone, I find myself afraid that I will come off as needy if I ask for attention or more affection. It sounds like you HAVE done your best in the past. Btw, you bringing up CES letter shit before thanksgiving will guarantee a very awkward time with the GF and probably the family for the day. You aren't engaged or married or anything, you can't just know that she won't see the light and remain crazy Mormon forever.
Thanks for commenting on my blog. Mormon children are advised, in their religion, to refrain from dating until they are at least 16 years of age. I've been doing it wrong. 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. Good luck and my prayers are with you. Why not ask him where he wants the relationship to go. In fact, the church is designed to help people come unto Christ, who is the only one who can change our hearts and help us overcome ourselves to come back to him.
This is by design. There is no way she will may you without you going to the temple. I wouldn't purposefully subject my daughters to that BS. To those asking about pre-med boyfriends, mcat, first year, med school boyfriends: You never accomplish half what you set out to do, and taking practice exams is the most anxiety provoking experience. Mormons have a well-known code of health, called the Word of Wisdom. If you decide to marry this man, you both will find a way to be happy and have a wonderful marriage, not that perfect that we see in the Sundays at Church. All of which will remind her that she wants you to convert so you can be together for eternity. Somehow I never believed any of that; I wanted a career and a small family and never believed religion was a way to identify good character.
I'm not going to live my life in regret I know it sounds terrible but you gotta do what you gotta do. Ask her out on dates. Then, do any of the above morsels of advice matter. She got engaged 3 months later. You and your husband are truly a team, even though things are not always equal. Either way, if you have kids and you don't convert, she will divorce you and take your kids away from you and you will be shunned from her community.
