Can I add to this extremely old thread. All this said, God is love and fully understands and appreciates your problem. We are long distance, and it is hard, because when we are together I spend much of time alone waiting for him to come back from the hospital. You'll take out the trash, coordinate all the home repairs, pay all the bills, do all the yard work and generally work your ass off until you're emotionally and physically drained. Hi I have read all your comments and although I am not married to a Doctor my dad was a Doctor and I think marrying a Doctor is no different to marrying any man who works with his own ambitions. It is an act of faith. We have all felt it and our house seems absolutely different. But I do want to be with him. I have been doubting if this relationship is going to work because I hardly ever talk to him so my first reaction is okay who else is he seeing??. I dated non mormon men.
There are such things as perfect loving families though. I love my non-member husband of nearly 20 years. I am Roman Catholic so I believe almost the exact same things as a regular-non mobot- type mormon This religion Mormonism has a dual identity where some believers are closed mined fools. I know from my own experience that God has the answers and that He speaks to those individuals who humbly seek Him. Also, I know a bunch of Mormons that say they are, but don't act like it. Love the way you normalize the challenges of being married. The thing is, even though no one else trusted my decision, I prayed about it daily for our entire relationship. You are commenting using your Facebook account. He says he has put-in a lot of his life into his profession and his career is very important to him. You will only have a happy relationship if either you both believe in the Mormon Church, or both do not believe.
The religious differences between you two are a deal-breaking fault. His hectic job aside, he is an amazing man, very loving and family oriented, which is what I have always wanted. For me, one of those bouncers is my marriage to the most wonderful woman alive. This is right for me and for us. God brought the two of us together, and we are truly in love. I have a better and fuller relationship with God because my own practice has been supplemented by additional observance. Of course she won't want to watch something that in her mind attacks her religion.
Part of me feels like will I ever get chosen for one weekend as a priority over medicine. That is speaking from my own relationship. Anyway, I am not sure what the future holds for us, but it was nice to find your blog and see other couples dealing with the same challenges. I think that Doctors have to be selfish to a degree. Her Religion is more important than you will ever be Her Religion comes first and deep down, she will come to hate you for not accepting joining her religion. It had been going on for years. This helps us out a lot, we dont feel like we are missing parts of each others day and I dont keep him up all night talking.
