Marriage is unbelievably amazing and indescribably painful; I have been at it for 28 years with my soul mate. This always seemed terribly wrong to me. Go on your different ways as friends and don't expect your relationship to go anywhere. The misogyny is deep in the Mormon church.
He will have to be okay with being thought not good enough to help in circumstances in which you believe that priesthood power is needed. He needs a house that he can call home and a family that loves him. Nor was there a lack of compassion or respect. This is because if your relationship gets serious and you guys get married, then she may have to forgo many of the customs of her religion. Too bad she couldn't handle the guilt and remorse. Two years ago, I found out he was having an affair with one of his PA's at the hospital. Thanks for commenting on my blog. 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. Then she took a vacation to Utah and in her letter to me she stated that she had seen the Temple, and I never heard from her again. My dear faithful LDS aunt married a good non-member man.
Money is not everything although the ex certainly has her share. It is positively shocking. I wanted so badly to marry a guy who had recently left the church. If this happens, it might click something in her mind that says that what she experienced was pleasurable and she would like to have it again. I am his wife and we have 4 children.
