I am no longer the vivacious young girl……life has not been easy. He does not place the marriage above it. As my husband learns about Mormonism I get to see it through his fresh eyes. This is by design. Can I add to this extremely old thread. Inthe same year she moved cross-country again. You are a good person and she can see that. In 5 years, one thing has become certain to me. I'm going to disagree with what some of the people have said. I had a business, 3 engineering degrees, numerous patents, and was working countless hours a week to try and keep a roof over our heads, make sure she was fed, the house was clean, bills were paid, etc.
The Holy Ghost will testify that it is true. Can he see the good in it, or does he focus on the more controversial aspects. Consider a mix of activities that are inexpensive, and allow you to talk and learn about one another. Anyway, I'm sad and disappointed and I know that it will be my job to keep the marriage together. Your comment is SO spot on in my experience. Wonderful memories made for both of us. I clearly stated twice that I severed things with the girl. No one could compare to the man I married. Many blessings to you. I wish you all well on your recovery from this particularly vile church.
Yes, because that is generally what is best. He want to wait at least one year before he makes any decision he want to take it slow. I've been married to a cardiologist for 30 years. Other lazy Mormon girls turn feminist, many thousands of them. This is by design. Do you have any specific suggestions for discussion about content on LDS. Thanks for the help. If she is still Mormon and you are not, she will always secretly hope that you convert, just like you will always secretly hope she leaves the church. Unfortunately, this has led to a culture of Mormon girls who are absolutely obsessed with Disney and even as adults dream of being Disney princesses. Family or girlfrient or the pet.
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. I am the bitch who doesn't understand anything. I am the same good faithful woman I always was, just on a different path than I ever expected, one full of insights and blessings I never knew could exist. So I knew what I was getting into when I married him though I secretly hoped he would still convert back.
So it will just be for this life that it may be hard to have a non-believing spouse.
