December 16, Dating a mormon girl. At least I know that there are people who truly understand the medical life. It has been closed. I am just starting to get a little panicky and upset about this the more I think about it. I just wanted to let SN and AD know that, if you decide to choose this path, you are not alone. I even had someone tell me I should know better than to marry a nomo. What I meant was I'm wondering if it will get noticeably easier in terms of his schedule in the next few years and right after he finishes, or if it will always feel like this when it comes to being with someone in his profession. The Church encourages you to use dating as an opportunity to show your respect not just for others, but for yourself. He did call frequently, so I don't think its a good sign that your doctor guy isn't calling. Do you really want to wait two years to enjoy sex, fun, happiness, intimacy with someone.
Our communication is almost gone to none, he needs a lot a lot of alone time to achieve his career while i am really worried that how much longer i can live like this!!. As ex-mormons, can anyone here offer some insight about this girl, her religion, and what exactly I may be getting myself into if I continue dating her. Just a woman who envies the good life of being a medical doctor's wife. It can't be antiMormon. Hi, I am not a doctor's wife. The extent of other physical activity depends on what you both want from the relationship, though in general the Mormon Church frowns on sexual contact even beyond intercourse. And if he loves you as much as you love him.
I think Bob, the answer can be found in your comment. This woman is a human being, not a caricature of a TBM. I tried to date Mormon women, honestly. It's definitely not an easy life. This is something that's very important to her, and it's difficult to be married to someone who doesn't share the same values. It comes from patience, tolerance, positivity and goodwill not just for our families, but for the people that our spouses are positively impacting, as well. Because I make myself busy, and I think he would to, with other projects and activities. Disney gives them the fantasy where they can easily achieve a standard of perfection with low risk.
I also know that whenever exceptions are made, there are reasons. It's been tough to always move and find a new job, friends etc I agree a support system is needed. I'm engaged to a med student we met in undergrad 2 years ago and I've watched him go from playful college kid to serious med student. Only the racist comments about why it was enacted have been disavowed. I feel like I am under the microscope. You would be her back up plan in case she can't find a guy who is a returned missionary, preferably from a prominent LDS family. The struggle is real.
