She's likely openly telling her family that it's okay he's not Mormon because she's going to get him baptized. Eventually you will get engaged and married and have babies and buy a house together. My boyfriend and I are both in medical school and it is so difficult to manage a relationship while surviving the class load. I don't think I could let that happen. A lot of people will tell you to run but if she is in her late 20s most Mormon guys her age are married. I mean, I get where it comes from but it's so ridiculous. So that may be the end of it there. I'd try to see if she will leave the religion, and if not, you should break it off.
That list is comprised of his parents including his dad's affair which led to a son, his aunts and cousins in Europe his sister and her husband who are handicapped and whoever comes his way asking for a handout. I can handle a lot of daily mindless, nonverbal things, like cuddling for a bit before bed, but phone calls and even texting can be exhausting in a way that is very difficult to explain. I'm so comforted by this thread. When my nomo husband does go to church we discuss the talks. It is a tradeoff at best. The church can be a very cruel place for single people.
Imagine if I had a panic attack every day at 10am?!. Especially if they're devote enough to expect you to marry in heaven, huge implications with that one. But that was also a possibility if he had married a non-mormon. Her dad is a bishop Oh, I should clarify we're both in our late 20s and living independently from parents. Anything she learned about mormonsim, she wanted to learn on her own. I would come back from one of our weekends together and they would ask how it was and I would talk about how amazing it was and what all we did. Don't wait for it to eventually fall apart or hope that she will change. Never mind the paycheck because I even earn more than him. Because if you can't live and let live, you both need to dive deep into this stuff and figure out what you believe and want in your life. This insecurity is at the root of the princess syndrome.
But the idea of marrying my husband felt right from almost the get-go and, my patriarchal blessing made so much more sense. It was totally eye-opening. Still, I would be interested to hear your perspective and that of your readers. At the risk of overloading this post, I'm going to copy and paste here, a Reddit comment that I made in this exmo sub the other day.
