Ask Mormon Girl is the blog of author Joanna Brooks. And most of those end up with both people losing their faith or a divorce. I'm doing the best I can, I try to travel to visit family but again it would be just me and my son.
As a man who married a non-Mormon woman, my story has a slightly different view point, but it comes down to essentially the same principles. The Mormon church is certainly a time consuming church. I decided to do the mormon thing and just not think about it too much right now. I have been a doctor's wife for almost 2 years - and we have been together for about 7 years, since right before intern year. I could draw some flip-art of a kiss on some post-it notes and send one a day. That settles it for me. Unless you convert she won't marry you, plain and simple. I love how this applies to ALL marriages.
If a direct contact is simply not possible given the residency schedule, then how about a bedtime phone call. And as many posters stated, it is something that needs to be seriously discussed with your potential partner. But I was unusual in that I never really wanted to convert my husband I was worried I'd have to divorce him if he turned true Mormon and he didn't need me to believe way he does.

I hated it so much, in fact, that I ran off to China. Thanks for letting us know. I would never change my decision to marry him. I'm keeping myself occupied with my kid, work but I wonder if my career will ever take precedence. Given the fact that doctors, esp surgeons, have a very busy life in US, it seems logical. And there's a story I'm going to look again for too.
