It MAY be true that she will not marry him unless he converts. If it seems one is unable to find a spouse within the church, which commandment do you keep. And your future kids will be taught that you are the reason they don't have an "eternal" family. And depending on his views of the Sabbath, you will probably get the tug of war on Sundays. It sucks but ultimately what Mormonism does to people is it makes them value adherence to church more than their relationships with people. I had a business, 3 engineering degrees, numerous patents, and was working countless hours a week to try and keep a roof over our heads, make sure she was fed, the house was clean, bills were paid, etc. Everyone has their own sins and impure thoughts they need to overcome. They were taught that bold sincerity of purpose and a charitable attitude is what makes a man. Always know the hospital and patients come first-it is just a given. Ragonk If you don't get it, never mind.
Hi Op, I wouldn't worry about the lack of constant contact too much. I currently just started dating someone who is not only in the military, but a doctor.
It is positively shocking. This one is different. If you are both in high school, she may refuse altogether. 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. A lot of Mormons escape that pitfall and can put people first. They even refrain from tea and coffee. Being married to a doctor is no walk in the park. Mormons are one of the few remaining groups with healthy women. I keep the positive thought that it will get better. Go on your different ways as friends and don't expect your relationship to go anywhere.
Do whatever it takes to at least learn from your relationship with your Mormon crush. By the way, I have had to get another job to help make ends meet. She is probably thinking she can convert you if she is with you long enough and is a good enough example. No doubt that some will be valiant up on the other side of the veil, but just as sure there will others who will reject salvation because of their high mindedness. Are the sacrifices you make for your partner worth it, and do you have any tips for making it work. Each to their own though. Now that my boyfriend and I are beginning to talk about a future together, though, I realize that I need to consider this question of marrying outside of the church very carefully. There are such things as perfect loving families though. There is no way I can compete with a suicide!!. I have feeling you stopped pursuing anyone unlikely to go for you.
This is because if your relationship gets serious and you guys get married, then she may have to forgo many of the customs of her religion. About eight years ago, I dated a Radiology resident and I vaguely remember it being intense, but this rises to a whole new level. I'm in the exact same pulling-out-my-hair situation that you are.
