Its the days when I don't get a text that I worry I feel terrible now for ever doubting him. I've never understood that bit of the LDS culture. I am married to an OB physician 10 years.
I even had someone tell me I should know better than to marry a nomo. The doctrinal and afterlife issues around a non-temple marriage are an entirely different topic, and one that I am personally much more at peace with than my questions about how one might make an interfaith marriage work in this life. He will have to be okay with being thought not good enough to help in circumstances in which you believe that priesthood power is needed. There is no way I can compete with a suicide!!. Seems some lonely trolls out there too based on above commentor. It was not just frustrating but also saddening and stressful.
It made me sad to think that the thing that was most important my life в my faith в was something that I could never fully share with my husband. Marriage offers a chance to develop generosity of spirit and a willingness to be improved by the one we love, no matter what faith tradition he or she may claim. You guys are looking into this wayyyyyyy too much. Otherwise her family will likely feel incomplete to her. He may never come out and say it, but if you mention marriage outside of the church and he's OK with it, you have a slight chance of being happily married to her and not being mormon. I was spiritually prepared to receive the answer that I sought. You should want to keep things new and interesting, as you would in any relationship, while still allowing your date to maintain the standards of her faith.
And what is even worse, is to think of him alone in our house Christmas Day while I work a 24 hr in-house call shift. Many Mormons stick to a small group of friends within the church. Am I ready for this. She won't marry you. She will insist on raising her children in the Mormon church. If you end up marrying a true believing Mormon, your marriage will be a threesome. However, and this might sound sad. Oh, and remember LDS girls are usually good at leading guys on with potential sex to get guys to agree to what they want join the church. I am someone who loves quality time a lot. Reading your messages I don't feel bad about being in the shadow of his career.
