I feel like I am under the microscope. I can only say that I was that girl, 10 years ago. My husband is finishing up residency and is never around. If yes, do you promise to not proselytize to me and let me drink a simple cup of coffee in my own home. I'll bring up some CES letter issues, let her know why I wouldn't want my children raised like this, and we'll see what happens. She encourages me to develop my skills and talents, and provides an example in several of those areas.
But I'm trying to determine how much of that behavior is truly down to his profession, and how much of it is him not being very into me or just selfish and unwilling to compromise even if that selfishness is a byproduct of his residency, and not how he would be in other circumstances. Include your email address to get a message when this question is answered. All this actually needs is some stamps, pre-printed envelopes, and a few seconds to dash off a note, kiss the paper, and drop it in a mailbox. That question really put things into perspective for me, so thank you.
I wanted to be able to fully share my faith with my spouse, but this expectation was now up in the air. If you have children how will they be raised. They do exist and you deserve that. A wonderful resource tool with great updates. He also hints a lot to settling down with me.
Hopefully they have some say in it, but I'm speaking about other churchgoers' expectations here, and probably your wife's. And after years of this struggle, will your love for him and desire to avoid the hassle cause you to reduce your activation. I think you need to sit down and have a conversation with him about all of this, because that's truly the only way to get to the bottom of it and make a decision for yourself. Being the first in his family to make it, he now supports the lives of those who didn't. I've told people money doesn't buy love. My family is pretty awesome in the church. You never had it. You got some good advice from the other posters on how to maintain contact.
