It's alot to understand if not raised and taught in it specifically. I wish I had not ignored the signs whiles we dated but now I am out of energy. This makes me so sad. 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. Now learn about how all of your doubts can be resolved through apologetics. Thanks again for the help. This is how I felt when I married my exmo husband. If we have children, they will be OK to go to your church, but not compelled to do so, and never baptized. Are you going to keep the sabbath holy as a family, or is he going to take the kids out for pizza after church, leaving you home to observe alone. I dated many LDS guys before him.
Mormonism is a religion that's as manipulative as it is comforting. But she understands that I am committed to the Gospel, and will never leave it either. I'm glad he's upfront about the difficulty in dating for him. And you know what. Many blessings to you. My family is pretty awesome in the church. 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. Think of it as giving him a prompt, and now he gets to give his thoughts.
Its was written in shorthand so its hard to read. Don't forget too that IF you are successful in turning the lights on and deconverting her, the family would resent you the rest of their lives. However, from what I have seen he has all of the qualities I want from someone long-term. There is rarely minute that goes by where I am not thinking about him in some way. While my husband is not a doctor he does have a job that requires very odd hours a-typical of the American and works all holidays. Yes, I have considered alternatives.
From someone else in the medical field - a nightly phone call would be seriously draining, even if it only lasted a few minutes. Today, at my ward sacrament meeting, in the back section of the chapel where I was sitting, all the women except one were Mormon wives in interfaith families. I have always been more driven by my interest in a career and pursuing an education. Her experience may or may not be typical, but it is something to consider. Consider a mix of activities that are inexpensive, and allow you to talk and learn about one another. It MAY be true that she will not marry him unless he converts. Because she already lives the covenants in most of the meaningful ways. Because Mormons retain old-fashioned values, Mormon girls are raised in a traditional environment by good fathers.
