Does that make sense. I have been dating a surgeon and we are thinking about marriage. And that fairly constant theme has some deep implications your girlfriend will have to face.

After a lot of thought during that relationship with a non-Mormon, I laid out exactly what struggles I was probably going to face: I was worried about my own faith. The church really needs to tailor to more partial LDS families, imho. I know you got a zillion replies, and I have not read them. Maybe if I met him at another point in time, things would have worked with us.
We strive to improve each other. You need to disabuse them of this notion. Most couples who are married where one is a Mormon and the other isn't, usually stems from a situation where they both were married in the temple, then one of them lost their faith sometime after that.
He can relate to me and we can relate to each other which makes us strong to begin with. It has nothing to do with their career. Sadly, the general consensus of "convert or nope out" sounds like what will end up happening. His single doctor friends have so much more time and money to spend on lavish overseas holidays and recreational activities, while every spare moment the husband has to spend at home, helping with the children and all the responsibilities that entails. I'm firmly in the RUN camp. And I learned how freeing that is.
