That said, there are also a lot of pricks inside the church, who fully deserve membership. She got engaged 3 months later. But that parent-child relationship was bound to change anyways as you become an adult. I now think that 2 is the only reasonable choice to make, even as a man в staying single my whole life в until and unless I find the woman whom I cannot live without, the woman who is a true companion to me.
Mormons think when you die, based on if you were a good person cough cough atheists you go to spirit "paradise" where they will teach you the gospel. I don't know how to manage the resentment. Which is an absolute lie. He is a great doctor and everyone loves him great that makes it easy there are always going to be flirty women if you are not a strong women then run. I had told him that if he hadn't changed jobs, that I wouldn't have left him but that our relationship would probably become irreparable. If he's in year 1 of the residency, he's got probably years left finishing residency then fellowship. I don't see anywhere in your post where there is a complete commitment. He might just be unpracticed at your "love language". The point of a date is to get to know someone better.
She is considered "an old maid" by Mormon standards, so she may be willing to marry you--hoping you will convert someday --but she will constantly be reminded that your marriage is inferior to the "Eternal Families" of sealed Mormons, and she will fear dying and never seeing her loved ones again. Somehow snow days when everyone else is off, I feel like my husband is the only one working I know there are many but it is very hard. It CAN work, to be frank. You can always expand these into group dates by inviting other couples along, which may make her more comfortable in the early stages of your relationship. I know a lot of Mormons who were also not raised on fear and guilt and strict gender rolesвbut I was, as were many of my peers. Which is the highest place in heaven aka celestial kingdom.
I was definitely taking the "Tough love" approach because I've read countless times on this and other boards, how Mormons claimed that they were cool with their SO not being Mormon, and that they weren't, themselves, orthodox. I've moved to be with him for med school, then we moved again for residency and just moved again for fellowship. It's winter here and I figured she was layering for warmth. With so much pervasive degeneracy in the media, Mormon parents think they are safe showing their kids Disney movies.
