So you made a wise decision. Even Mormon girls who marry non-Mormons want great dads for their kids, and they are oriented to having kids, sometimes many kids. I still struggle with the silence in contact or wanting to "rescue" him from the harried schedule. It would be foolish to acquiesce a Mormon girl to drink coffee. My husband is midway throug his first year of cardiology fellowship and we have been having a tough time lately. I feel I have given a lot of myself and in the process have lost myself and my identity. Understand that it's their belief, and make plans for any of the other 6 days instead. I know you love her but is it worth it. When you try to explain to them why the church would not publish said info on their own website they get mad at you and tell you you're ignorant. It seems she'll expect you to become Mormon.
I disagree with the doctrines and practices of the LDS church. He knows that is a possibility. I married for companionship but now all I do is wait for him to stop working, to come home, to call me back, to have time, which is hardly ever. My wife chose me, but most people aren't so lucky. Think about what you want in a relationship. I get to spend my life with someone who was not raised on fear and guilt and strict gender roles. I expected to find this sisterhood of wives that would comfort, uplift, and laugh with one another. At parties, they drink soda and play board games. And also I thought it was weird she wore some kind of pants that come to her knees under her other pants, but I never asked about that. I have recently got admission in PhD and would be joining shortly.
I am a lawyers wife. He says that I should be happy that he is giving me all the comforts of life. I kept thinking things would get better at some point, but they didn't. But that parent-child relationship was bound to change anyways as you become an adult. She converts to your religion. The reality, however, has been far from it, as the small number of wives we do have in the program seem to be busy raising their kids or not really interested in developing these relationships. The Mormon girl has the light of Christ shining through her, and you were drawn in. Having no expectations and being flexible is very important. I really hadn't considered a lot of the points people have brought up. I love this post and this perspective.
While I knew that she'd be busy with her studies, she did make good efforts to spend time with me at least once a week and things all seemed fine. He completely flipped the switch. Random Questions to Ask a Guy. And to top things off, last night I caught him cheating.
