If she can't put you before her religion then you need to walk away. This was the biggest one for me. I did in college, and knew I would play 2nd fiddle to the lifelong dream. I hope he can do it. And as much as I love my boyfriend with my whole heart, I can see now that sadly maybe I might have to reconsider a life married to him. I just don't want to jump to conclusions and am trying to prepare myself for a new normal. When you make the best choice for you, blessings will follow. The divorce factor may allow some women to experience single-faith marriage at some point as some Mormon men marry multiple Mormon women over the course of their lifetimes, but the overall point stands: The only options for these women involve seeking a partner outside of the church, or a lifetime of celibacy.
When I was 19, my boyfriend considered himself an atheist. He's in his second year of residency and we're talking about me leaving everything to get engaged and move up with him. I've decided not to mention the CES letter or anything that could be considered "anti-mormon. Stopped answering texts and calls, refused to give me my belongings that he moved up to the new place, and not to mention he broke up with me over the phone after all of those years. But I have no idea how much of his lack of contact is actually due to him being busy or if that's just an excuse to not commit. Even if the church believes a bunch of crazy nonsense, and she believes it too, I still really like her and would like to see whether we can have some good intellectual conversations about this stuff. If you marry him, you are committing to accepting him without the church and all that this entails. Ragonk If you don't get it, never mind. The important thing is doing it together. When my nephews started looking at porn on computers everybody blamed me when it wasn't me.
She probably has not studied the real truths behind Mormonism and thinks her beliefs are the only way to become a God while living eternally with family in the life hereafter. This woman has already given two full years fully devoted to the institution without question. She found the perfect Mormon guy, they were married in the temple.
Props to people who do. MinsPackage speaks the truth. It's also possible that deep down she's like many of us here, and her shelf will break and she'll want out. I get that a lot to people saying 'be happy you married a doctor' 'u will have a glamorous wonderful life' they would not get it unless they be one-that is being a docs wife, the loneliness is the worst especially when your newly wedded and 2nd month of ur marriage he has to go for his night calls in dec, which includes our first christmas: I thought I was the only one who barely gets communication throughout the day, not married but am dating a surgeon and have for 6 years.
