And the longer you see her you won't be getting out of anything soon either. I believe in temple marriage, and in the importance of those covenants. I learned, growing up, that very principle, that you HAD to marry a member or your marriage was doomed. I do not text or call him frequently-- I'll send him the occasional message, but generally I let him initiate contact and dictate the pace. I'd have plenty if we divorced. You can and should share with her why you don't and never will believe in the Mormon church, and let her decide for herself, but be prepared to have that blow up in your face. Other lazy Mormon girls turn feminist, many thousands of them. My dad was in the bishopric for most of my childhood, and I was never the person you describe here. Sadly, my ward shuns us. But remember that it is also your wife's choice to obey or disobey, and that you have no authority over her as a person, either.
I married a person, not a religion. One small thing to add here. Life is not perfect. This was the biggest one for me. My relationship is the same way. Since a very young age, these girls have gazed at handsome paintings of Jesus and prophets, and learned to respect men who have spiritual confidence in their eyes. I"am a man married to a female doctor with two daughters one is five years of age the other two and a half. I knew a woman who married a man who converted to the church and she spent the rest of their married life telling him he was not good enough. I knew a guy who joined the Mormon church because he thought it would help him date a certain Mormon girl, a girl who refused to date non-Mormons.
Your spouse can be involved with anything that does not require a scheduled time. Thank you for this site. The woman's role is to grow up, marry a worthy priesthood holder, and have a lot of kids. We have almost daily prayers, scripture reading, and lengthy discussions about our beliefs. IF she becomes an Atheist free thinker like you then consider keeping her. When those are not around or when the circumstances or the spirit indicate otherwise then prayer is more than enough. As for having children, expect to be a single parent. Since her father is a bishop, I'm sure he'll want to have his daughter marry a temple worthy person.
No beliefs are protected from challenge, the rules of evidence, or derision. Odds are majorly against this dude. I still love my Heavenly Father and my Savior. There are other occasions for humor, but these two are off the table. Im sooooo happy i've found this blog!!. Do not make anything risque public.
