You have to choose what's right for you, but you have to figure it out. I do know other doctors who have more balance but take a cold hard look at what your life will be like if your man is married to medicine. Maybe watch "Going Clear" with her. Having said that, I believe strongly that it takes a special individual who can remain active in the church and have a non-traditional marriage. As a parent, we hope our children will make life choices that will give them the greatest chance of happiness.
Mormons love to have fun, but they prefer keeping it clean, respectful, and something that everyone can enjoy. How do you handle the ocd behavior. I'd rather marry a rich doctor and let him have his affair s on the side just so long as I don't have to work anymore. But equally, does this mean you will have to sanction what you do, say and watch regarding Mormonism. It really helped to make me feel better. Play with fire if you don't fear getting burned. I get to experience the joys of his culture, which I never would have known otherwise. Additionally, you need to take stock of your beliefs and acknowledge they may change overtime. Find out what your partner thinks of as non-negotiable. It was actually causing more of a rift than bringing us together.
Mormonism isn't a free ticket to heaven. You can be very committed to someone but only be able to fit them in the limited free time you have. Of course I have time for my SOs, of course I give of myself to them. I forgot to add, that if you marry and alow your children to be raised as Mormon, chances are you wont be able to be at their wedding because it will be in the temple. It really has been helpful. I agree we shouldn't continue if we can't accept each other as we are. It's a heart-wrenching story. But what I discovered surprised me.
I knew a guy who joined the Mormon church because he thought it would help him date a certain Mormon girl, a girl who refused to date non-Mormons. You should want to keep things new and interesting, as you would in any relationship, while still allowing your date to maintain the standards of her faith. My husband is in his last year of residency. Women do not get to hold the priesthood and function in an equal role with men.
