Before I met my husband I had dated quite a few members and some relationships were quite serious but I never felt right about it. God brought the two of us together, and we are truly in love. The ex gets it all lol. In many ways, she was everything that I ever wanted in a spouse, but in other ways she was not what I ever expected. And there are questions and lessons that dual-faith couples face that zero-faith or single-faith households do not. And I'll disagree with the other person who responded to your comment. I am a very independent person socially so I often do not think to call people just because I am fine doing things myself. However her husband joined the church a few years after their marriage. I say to you, decisions determine destiny. The church is very important to her.
Welcome to Reddit, the front page of the internet. Things have worked out pretty well with us so far. It's alot to understand if not raised and taught in it specifically. I know after residency he would choose a flexible job which would allow for the most family time. Expect her to either write you off during her mission or pressure you to show interest in the church. Want to add to the discussion. She is passionate about it. But now it also comes out that he resents my past negativity and lack of appreciation for his hard work I didn't want to talk about my issues with him because, as many of you have said, my little problems couldn't compete with what he was dealing with at work. Dude just to summarize what I think is the majority of the comments. I get looking ahead, but it seems like you are very unhappy with the way things are now.
I felt insane and crazy for being upset and considered just leaving ASAP. But this phase isn't going to be short. Have any of you wives found the same thing. Mormons are one of the few remaining groups with healthy women. And after years of this struggle, will your love for him and desire to avoid the hassle cause you to reduce your activation. The most important thing is an open dialogue, as you say, and utmost respect for the other person. He's a good man. Reading all your comments makes me feel sometimes uplifted, other times scared as hell. We get along exceptionally well and I really like him though, so I can see this going somewhere. We don't have many nights out and he does sleep when he can but he has a surgeon's ego and so being great in bed is a priority for him.
Only idiots are unfriendly to non-Mormon spouses. Most of us were suckled on that teat too. Single women who are educated, regardless of religion, are also going to find similar gender imbalances among their educated peers nowadays. My current atheism bothers him a little but as long as we respect each other it's fine. If she identifies as a Mormon, then she probably takes her faith seriously, and it means a lot to her.
