Joanna mentioned that our theology is rich with opportunities for second chances. It has just made me realize that these formulas a lot of us Mormons learn growing up about how to have a happy marriage are, well, crap. Best of both worlds if you ask me. Be open and talk about your ideals. I would go ahead and make boundaries with the conversation about kids and church, if that is your preference. Now I try to put myself in his shoes and he has always had a problem standing firm in any decision so its hard for him to say no. I am also going thru the same thing. Would she be okay with never being married in the temple. In other words, eternal marriage really is worth it, I think. Seclusion has served to preserve their desirable traits, but it also makes it difficult to gain rapport.
The important thing is doing it together. I spent a lot of time on my knees and made several trips to the temple before I felt l could trust that what I knew I wanted to be promptings actually were. You would be able to force her to confront the facts without feeling threatened. Good luck to both of you on working this out, and if you decide that interfaith marriage is something you can handle and your gentlemen turn out to be the right men for you, then welcome to the club. I think we date twice a year. Would she be okay with never being married in the temple. We need to get over ourselves and start loving each other how the Lord intended. I suppose it depends on your personality. All those are reasons to give the church some elbow room but they are not reasons for actually staying. I forgot to mention that we've only been dating for 6 mo.
Should one belief system or lack of one take priority and why. I'm beginning to think that it should be a monthly visit no matter what. I'll tell her that we are strictly friends for now on. That said, there are also a lot of pricks inside the church, who fully deserve membership. She is going to be taught for the rest of her life in the church the importance of missionary work and eternal families, and Priesthood in the home. My daughter thinks it's funny that she's known her SO 4 years - not ready for marriage. She encourages me to develop my skills and talents, and provides an example in several of those areas. There is no moral issue here. However, you might be lucky to not have the experience I did. She is showing a common attitude of distrust for "anti-mormon" material.
I wish I had not ignored the signs whiles we dated but now I am out of energy. I read every page of the CES letter, and it's definitely convinced me this entire religion is fabricated, but I'm sure she wouldn't even read it much less consider its points seriously.
