I wanted to be able to fully share my faith with my spouse, but this expectation was now up in the air. Who knows, but I think it was especially hard for the moms of young men. As a physician buckling under the stress, my assigned counsellor who is also a church minister told me: So, what do I do with that. I think it was Spencer Kimball who counselled that before marriage you should keep your eyes wide open and then after marriage keep your eyes half shut. I think she sounds great but she won't be able to not bring it up. They are taught to refrain from smoking, drinking, or experimenting with drugs.
That was my experience. And you are right about people telling you that you are lucky that you married a doctor and should not complain. I love him dearly with all of my heart. You're walking into a den of crazy, tbm bishop's daughter, I hate to say it but you should really be contemplative about what you're stepping into. Real love just happens. Do you really love him, honey. While a part of me is sad about not having a temple marriage and getting sealed together I have hope that this could change while we are on this earth and I have faith in an ever-loving Father in Heaven who is kind and just and will be able to provide a way for my family to live together in the eternities.
She will be oh-so-grateful if you do not pressure her to discard those values. I am married to an ongologist for 16years. She cannot get into the top echelons of heaven without being sealed to a worthy priesthood holder in the temple for time and all eternity.
This was hugely disappointing for him and created some very tense times. What about the folks at church. You will only have a happy relationship if either you both believe in the Mormon Church, or both do not believe. But my relationship with him is worth this small sacrifice. The religious differences between you two are a deal-breaking fault. But God works in mysterious ways.
