I am 27, LDS, and 5 days away from marrying my own amazing non-Mormon man. It was more about my own spirituality and our relationship in our marriage. But, as someone posted earlier we did not marry a physician completely for the status and money, we also expect as should any wife love and respect. It really can be that simple. The two of you can get married in the temple and live together forever for eternity. It's alot to understand if not raised and taught in it specifically. Some say, they love wearing it, it gives them "protection from evil". What if you are sexually incompatible. I had been teetering on the fringes for quite a long time, mostly coming to Church but not really being present, because I felt like an outcast as an older single. I will keep reading, but it looks like most of the stuff about racism and polygamy has been "adequately" explained away by updates to LDS.
Neither of our children ever considered medicine as a career after seeing how much their dad missed out on. That was literally over years ago. You insult my husband who is as faithful as they come and does everything he can to spend time with us and to help out. This also implies, there is no reason for me to further my education or career because he would prefer I have children immediately. If you want to date a Mormon guy or girl, then the best way to meet singles is by visiting the Church. The first time that happened could have been viewed as a warning sticker, and been your cue to exit stage right. I don't think I'm eligible to advice, but I would say be prepared to be independent and make lots of friends. That said, there are also a lot of pricks inside the church, who fully deserve membership.
Sorry, you can't reply to this topic. This could possibly be worked out with some communication; perhaps he just hasn't given it enough thought to realize how shitty it is It's very inconsiderate of him. Mormons have separate congregations for young single adults, which is very convenient. We feel good about our choices, but know it might not be the right path for everyone. His hectic job aside, he is an amazing man, very loving and family oriented, which is what I have always wanted. I think it might be worth trying. We met after he finished his residency and started working as an ER director. He came to bed at 1: I don't know if I can make this work. Do you believe in the Gospel as taught by the Church.
If she is full on Mormon, this relationship will go one of two ways: You will convert and change your entire lifestyle and personality to conform with her expectations never to deconvert or you will face severe penalitesor you will break up because you won't convert and change everything about yourself. But of course this does not mean that mixed religion children cannot grow up to be LDS stalwarts. So I understand how it's easy to believe nonsense when you're brainwashed from birth, and how it can be comforting to believe your life is somehow very important in the grand scale of the universe, and how you don't have to be afraid of death because you'll go on to a better place where you'll live happily ever after for eternity. No where did I say, nor I think indicate, that I thought this wasn't a complex issue, or that this girl is a caricature. There are a lot of single people in the world. As teaching staff, he still works more hours than the residents on average and pulls call about twice a week. The gold is in the footnotes and sources linked from those new essays.
