Will he possible convert just to make you happy without really buying into it. Fortunately most of my immediate family has done better. Hell we haven't even gone in a date yet. If all the Mormons truly were the pricks we often claim them to be, then Mormonism would be the perfect punishment for them. Yep, I was an analyst in a bank for 3 years after college. We started dating 16 years ago, and both resigned from the church earlier this year. 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. And then run from this girl if you don't think there's a chance she'll wake up. Oh well, I'll just pretend she's not mormon and see what happens. Is it really worth it to give up what I want out of a relationship because its hard to balance studying which I understand is stressful and being with the person who makes you happy.
If they are, run to the altar, in or out of the temple. All you have to do is be honest about your username here and you'll never see her again. I will definitely take your advice and talk with him about my concerns I truely love him and want us to see eye to eye about certain issues since we are working towards being in this for the long run. Deep down I know he could pass on that stuff, but never the less it seems like a necessary inconvenience to attend these events. I understand in some measure of the pressure on the provider, but this profession was their choice. I got married to a Mormon woman. She encourages me to develop my skills and talents, and provides an example in several of those areas. It's easy to forget why I chose to be with him in the first place. You see, I am the guy, and she is the established doctor dermatologist. In many ways, you yield some authority to the church.
I haven't read every post like you probably havebut I've read a lot of them. We raised 2 wonderful children who are now happy and successful adults. The point of a date is to get to know someone better. The weekends that we spend together are non stop we are always doing something or going to see friends People in general don't understand how much money it actually takes to just be a doctor. The bottom line is that you are setting yourself up for difficult times ahead. I just feel relieved that I'm not the only one feeling like this. I had to lobby and cry alot so I could bring my dog up, I am not sure how that will go because dogs have hair, need to go out, and the house might get messed up. And Mormons were basically encouraged to marry other mormons. I agree she should be able to watch a movie or do her own research. I've heard way too many stories of people breaking up with amazing people and they end up alone or in a less happy relationship.
Please realize I know how the church works, was extremely active and raised good kids. I would leave him note reminding him how important his work was. You should ask yourself if you want to have input on the way your children are raised. I got married to for love and companionship, not to essentially be lonely with a lot of nice things and raise my children "as if" I were a single parent.
