I have finally learned to pray to change my heart, not his. Do you have any specific suggestions for discussion about content on LDS. Only the racist comments about why it was enacted have been disavowed. The scriptures say that one of the main reasons good people don't join the church is because they just haven't been introduced to it. If you like living on someone else's coat times, them by all means. Next year we are getting married but I already see a tough life ahead of me. I am so glad I found this blog. He's just not that into you. You just need to figure out where your girlfriend is. I am also certain that there are callings and opportunities that I would have had, were I married to a faithful LDS woman, that I have missed.
You just can't imagine the heap o' hurt you're potentially setting yourself up for. So I knew what I was getting into when I married him though I secretly hoped he would still convert back. On his days off he sleeps all day long. And I learned how freeing that is. It doesn't get better. 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. No matter what anyone says. Expect her to either write you off during her mission or pressure you to show interest in the church. I get it; I just don't buy into it. It MAY be true that she will not marry him unless he converts.
When you said that the doctor spouse sacrifices for their patients and their family sacrifices for the doctor's career, it really described my situation. Eternity is a long time. Many times, that is exactly what it really does feel like Yes I'am all to aware about those silly answers regarding pay and "don't worry be happy" boloney. I think you should start by having some very honest conversations. It has made me more creative in utilising time alone that it is sometimes preferred. Keep me posted, please. Thank you for pointing this out. The thing is, even though no one else trusted my decision, I prayed about it daily for our entire relationship. Hi Op, I wouldn't worry about the lack of constant contact too much. I was definitely taking the "Tough love" approach because I've read countless times on this and other boards, how Mormons claimed that they were cool with their SO not being Mormon, and that they weren't, themselves, orthodox.
This was hugely disappointing for him and created some very tense times. At what age do you baptize. And even then it will put Huge stress on it and on you for the rest of your life. Btw, you bringing up CES letter shit before thanksgiving will guarantee a very awkward time with the GF and probably the family for the day.
