I am a non Mormon. I married someone that wasn't of my faith and it worked great. Here are my thoughts as someone who grew up with a non-mormon father and as someone who married a non-mormon girl. I don't want to advocate manipulation but asking questions concerning Joseph's dishonesty about polygamy to his first wife and his marriage of other men's wives and marriage of a 14 year old may prove more fruitful than just saying wow polygamy is messed up. Glad I found this post. When those are not around or when the circumstances or the spirit indicate otherwise then prayer is more than enough.
I've been working like crazy myself, so it is easy for me to understand time issues involved in drs' training. Although most of our communication is through text. Move on, but after thanksgiving. Meaning that unless you are willing to become Mormon And your savings account. You stop talking at all. After all, when he IS around, he never makes them do anything they don't want to do, and he buys them expensive things to make up for being absent from their lives so much. This is really a conversation you need to have with him. Find someone who isn't part of a cult. Even without temple covenants marriage is a noble and worthy institution. Females are not expected to serve and MOST of the girls that do, only do so because they do not have a suitable read: If your GF is an attractive girl and still ended up on a mission then she is about as fanatical as they come and if she isn't already she will be slowly trying to convert you.
He gets worshipped every day at work. She cannot get into the top echelons of heaven without being sealed to a worthy priesthood holder in the temple for time and all eternity. We have been together for around three years and I feel like now more than ever he expects me to just do things his way and not have an opinion. It sounds like you HAVE done your best in the past. You just can't imagine the heap o' hurt you're potentially setting yourself up for. I am actually tired of the "excuse" that his work is so important or it's a calling. Men and women must be willing to accept what they know to be true.
There may be underlying personality similarities, but if the answer to "what shall I do next" is always trumped by a Morman frame of reference for one partner, but not the other, conflict is inevitable. I am trying to figure out how to go on in life and discover myself again. 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. I sacrificed my career not in medicine but I have advanced degrees in my profession because I felt so lucky to be able to be at home raising my two wonderful sons. That being said, there are some facets of the religion that you should be aware of that will influence how she approaches both you and the relationship. Do you want to be married in the temple. In 5 years, one thing has become certain to me. I'm not trying to be mean, just very clear.
