I was not in any way dissing her personally, nor dissing her at all, really Many people here have told the guy to run; I just went into more detail. But what I discovered surprised me. I love talking religion with him and I have never pressured him to change his habits or anything else about him. While it's true that Mormons are not one-dimensional and completely predictable, the odds of a successful relationship, given the OP's description of his girlfriend, are slim. He is always going to be the vulnerable, tired, needy one in our relationship and I don't feel like a doormat for being the one who provides that support and love to him anymore. He will not be permitted to bless the child in front of the ward, for instance, so you will have to choose to forego that ritual or find someone else to stand in for the father, which he may not be comfortable with. He has always had a tremendous caseload and often grueling call schedule. I believe in temple marriage, and in the importance of those covenants. I am seeing one right now My late ex was a physician and I was with him through med school, internship, residency and 20 years of his own practice.

I was actually just talking to my husband about that the other day, at first he said that it depressed him when I said that, but really, it helps.
Also not one Nickel will be tithed out of any shared funds. Why not ask him where he wants the relationship to go. Be fruitful and multiply. And I don't mean my good friend Satan. Till then, I know I should be more patient and understanding than any ordinary wife is. But DON'T become in need of care as a spouse. Given the fact that doctors, esp surgeons, have a very busy life in US, it seems logical. Oh, boo hoo to me you say When you are made a promise and fall in love with a man who has a broken marriage, you begin to believe that one day you will be with him. Are days like this going to be normal.
