And, as I was writing the reply, above, those thoughts went through my head. Please see above link for full rules. Sadly, my ward shuns us. Such beliefs make the girls confident about being women. 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. I completely agree, but I think the critical part is that he needs to talk to her. I am not sorry I married outside the LDS faith. Maybe watch "Going Clear" with her. I'll keep digging through it, but there's a lot there and I'd like some suggestions to narrow my search. I don't think we could have a real conversation about those points either.
My family is pretty awesome in the church. That's what good wives do, right. You should also be willing to date other people.
Forty plus years later I met my incredibly wonderful fabulous Mormon husband. Keep your power, girls, and keep the marriage egalitarian. As your future self, I say this with the utmost respect and admiration: Two peas in a pod.
Single women who are educated, regardless of religion, are also going to find similar gender imbalances among their educated peers nowadays. It has to do with their character. Also, I know a bunch of Mormons that say they are, but don't act like it. Now those are not the problems in my head anymore, whats in my head is how arewe goin to deal with this, ive told her sometimes u wont have anytime for me nor for your kids if we decide to have kids you wont be at the holidays nothing like that and she is always tryin to see everything positive and tells me dont worry ill schedule myself, and im like baby you will not be able to schedule urself your life would be in a hospital. The history of racism and violence is upsetting. I am also going thru the same thing. So there's THAT to look forward to. We feel good about our choices, but know it might not be the right path for everyone. We try to make this place a little better than we found it. Whatever your leaders have said, consider their counsel, give it the weight it deserves, then counsel with your Heavenly Father about your own situation.
I know residency is particularly bad, but what about when he finishes that. They are just really convinced they are right. I am an MD studying for my usmle step2. My seminary teacher went off on me about dating a non Mormon when I was talking about going to his prom. If you are a believer and are willing to go, then well and good. Now he is home for dinner every night, takes a fraction of the calls, and doesn't work holidays. Basically this is different than dating a religious mainstream Christian. I would have been deeply insulted if anyone talked about me the way people are talking about this girl He needs to tell her there is a no chance he will convert, that he is not comfortable with his children being raised Mormon if he isn'tthat she cannot ever expect a temple marriage with him. I clearly stated twice that I severed things with the girl. I made a conscious decision to marry outside the church for my own reasons.
I feel like this pressure of finding a residency has already taken a toll in our relationship and somewhat "controlled" us for so long that I am already so tired of it. I am a non-Mormon who moved to Utah for college. Keep yourself busy and do what you would normally be doing besides sitting around waiting for a guy to call.
