I'm pretty disturbed by the level of dismissiveness seen in many of the comments here. I am about to get into a relationship with a doctor. For men, this will likely come after completing your mission trip, so in your early 20s at the earliest. March 19, And congratulations, "lovableluciferian" for walking away from the precipice of an untenable relationship. There are other ways. Before I proposed, I actually broke up with my partner for a month в mostly due to family pressure. I agree with what you and so many of the other replies have said: Listen with an open heart and curiosity. As a non member you can not take her to the celestial kingdom to live with God and get your own worlds to populate with her. The fact that she's planning to go on a mission should help. What can you expect.
You're walking into a den of crazy, tbm bishop's daughter, I hate to say it but you should really be contemplative about what you're stepping into. If she says yes. My husband, regardless of religious affiliation, is a beloved son of our Heavenly Father who is very much worthy of my love, affection and dedication. For me and the woman I'm in love with, we CAN discuss it without breaking down into spittle and hate. Now look at the flip side в if he loves you, and realizes you fully believe, how will he deal with the importance of the temple to you. My dad was in the bishopric for most of my childhood, and I was never the person you describe here. Her home time is exclusively for the kids and paper work. You don't have to believe them yourself, but you need that respect in thought as well as action, and you need to frame this as your own journey because you can only change yourself. She's admitted to loving me before but she has problems and issues with what she wants. It's gonna hurt, and it's gonna break her heart, but much less so than waiting until you've both committed to each other and start discussing your future together.
I'm not so sure. That is the million dollar question. Bet as Joanna has said there are some things you should think carefully about в and this needs to be done with your head, not your heart. I dated many LDS guys before him. Look for girls in your singles ward. Things have worked out pretty well with us so far. And once you are done with those, ask about social issues and where she stands. And of course, when it happens, no one the leaver or the faithful spouse could have predicted it. I would never convert. Unless you convert she won't marry you, plain and simple.
Oh, and remember LDS girls are usually good at leading guys on with potential sex to get guys to agree to what they want join the church. What can I or your spouse do to make my spouse feel more important besides not being a physician. I have read half of all the comments and decided to skip the rest.
