He knows that is a possibility. I hope that you have left him at this point, and that you are happy. After 15 years of marriage, I'm so used to living a separate life with our 3 kids. Things have been mostly good, but there are always challenges to deal with. So we took the kids camping. But his absence in the spiritual side of my life, and that of my mother, was very hard. Do FaceTime with her when she gets there to drink tea. Marriage offers a chance to develop generosity of spirit and a willingness to be improved by the one we love, no matter what faith tradition he or she may claim. They must refrain not only from sex, but also passionate kissing or similar physical contact, or any act that arouses such feelings. I have had to compromise more often than I would have liked.
We all know people who know that the gospel is true but they will not accept it. He is truly my soulmate and I shudder to think that if I had not chosen to marry outside of the church, I would not have had this life with him. And he is reading one of my favorite Buddhist-based books, in an effort to understand my beliefs. The church creates massive guilt and shame in children and adults usually through sex related shaming. As far as as race and the priesthood, Mormons still believe the priesthood ban was divinely inspired. I don't think you necessarily need to cut ties with her. I only hate one thing in the planet, and that's the Mormon church. She will not marry you until you convert to mormonism whole cloth. But if your faith is a key part of your life, this is huge. I was thinking about this last night after listening to Radio West.
When out on a date with a Mormon guy or girl, be very decent, courteous, and well-mannered. All parent-child relationships do. Know there are a lot of Doctors who cheat though. I deal better with inattention when he is home better than him as well. Luckily he also wrote back really long emails and it helped us stay in touch we were doing overseas long distance-so that helped a lot. What a bozza topic. Sure it's lonely and hard work being a "single parent". There is no way I can compete with a suicide!!. A good doctor must be willing to sacrifice his own needs for the good of his patient and as his wife, you sacrifice as well. He needs a house that he can call home and a family that loves him.
I want so much to be supportive, but since my family is gone, I find myself afraid that I will come off as needy if I ask for attention or more affection. What's not to like about being a doctor's wife. I can honestly say this isn't worth it.
He isn't always around for holidays, birthdays, or anniversaries.
