My seminary teacher went off on me about dating a non Mormon when I was talking about going to his prom. I wrote about the doctor I dated on my blog "Fifty Shades of Rey. Trust Building Exercises for Couples.

I made a conscious decision to marry outside the church for my own reasons. Those were difficult both in terms of terminology and in understanding what was going on medically. If your heart longs for children, a family and love- why should you stop yourself holding out for some mystical Mormon man to swoop you off your feet. She really likes me, and if she could change one thing about me it would be my lack of religion.
This girl is also a real person, not a caricature of a cult member, and even if the ultimate result is a breakup, she deserves to be treated with compassion and respect. OP, I'm not a med student, just a plain old grad student. I've been doing it wrong. She's a shell of her former self and it breaks by heart to this day. For me and the woman I'm in love with, we CAN discuss it without breaking down into spittle and hate. Because if you can't live and let live, you both need to dive deep into this stuff and figure out what you believe and want in your life. The church will be in your bedroom, finances, and all your decisions. But realistically, if she is not open minded enough to even listen to someone who has a contrasting view of the church - how will she not continually discount you and your lack of beliefs.
I am also going thru the same thing. Doesn't leave many options here though but better than constantly having them push the church on you until you either give in and convert or break up. I've tried creating my own activities and pursuing interests but it still feels weird. I went to BYU. But now, we embrace our spiritual differences. In fact, your GF is probably one of the countless Mormon women who get married only to find out they have zero sex drive because of what they learned growing up.
