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. I've luckily broken down my GF's defenses about the church a little bit. If things get even more serious, try getting her to sign a pre-nup that neither she, nor her family will try to convert you. By the way I work full time about 60 hours a week with my company and seem to never miss anything for my kid and can do all his bullshit also. You are a good person and she can see that. Thanks for letting us know. I get to spend my life with someone who was not raised on fear and guilt and strict gender roles. We are still struggling to put our life back together for the sake of our marriage and our 3 boys, but it is a difficult path. We are best friends, and you will always have time for your best friend.
If you end up marrying a true believing Mormon, your marriage will be a threesome. They can't seem to deal with it, and shouldn't have to. Should we try to heed their counsel and marry in the Church. I know in terms of so many things as well as financial stability choosing another path is very uncertain, we would also have the student loans we would have to pay back. Most couples who are married where one is a Mormon and the other isn't, usually stems from a situation where they both were married in the temple, then one of them lost their faith sometime after that. Maybe you will win. He then proceeded to beat the shit out of her for a decade. Plan a day for them. I've been in a similar situation before. My wife and her family are a good example of this.
And yet I have such profound respect for his role in our community. What about the folks at church. If you're just shaken up and in need of a few stitches and work is busy, that means instead of rushing to your side immediately I might wait until my shift ends before showing up with takeout and flowers to look after you. Maybe it won't be a big deal. You won't know this until you do it and that is really important information to get before a marriage contract.
That's okay, but it means your not a match. I admit it is sometimes depressing going to bed without him and getting up seeing him still studying but I am sure we will survive this. She asked me the other night how it's possible for me to be such a good person when I don't believe in god. In any case; I can assure you from your post that he doesn't sound like he's being selfish; the behavior does sound like its residency related and not selfishness related. It is not something that should be taken lightly. Think of every possible scenario you can think of.
