It was actually causing more of a rift than bringing us together. I want to serve a mission in my old age with my husband. There is a difference between "I wouldn't want to be with someone who worked these hours forever" and "I am really unhappy and will be unhappy for the next three years. He stated he is in his 30's and established, and incapable of changing…. I even had someone tell me I should know better than to marry a nomo. If she can't or won't consider that the church is a lie, you need to move on because this relationship can't go anywhere. I am a soon-to-be Surgeon's wife and my boyfriend and I have started discussing the changes that are going to happen when he enters his residency. I chose to move on. My sisters married to the temple served a mission etcв. When my nephews started looking at porn on computers everybody blamed me when it wasn't me.
It's a less common occurrence, but it happens. I know a non-Mormon guy who married a Mormon woman and has kept her beautiful and desirable, by encouraging her religious involvement, even though he avoided Mormonism himself.

Like many single members of the church, I have often wondered whether I would be willing to marry someone outside of the temple, and over the past few years I have come to believe that I would be willing to do so. The independent work is just as important as the work we do as a couple. He is not a member and has told me he is not going to convert. Actually, Mormon families are shrinking, just like those outside the Church, but they will always be larger than families outside Mormondom. This lack of inclusion within the general society makes them socially awkward, especially around men. I also remember my father a stake president telling me the night before I got married that every single couple he had counseled through marriage struggles were not reading their scriptures or praying together every night.
