You can't reason with fanatics, and you got one. Only you will know. I am so glad I found this blog. I get a lot of satisfaction out of being a paramedic and my business is a long time dream. I just found your blog.
I try to be understanding but I find myself getting so angry. As a non-Mormon male widower Catholic contemplating marrying a devout temple recommended widow, I thank you all for the wonderful blog. Not in endless discussions of temple marriage, not ever. It's very noble but still demanding. Talk about issues with Jehovah's Witnesses etc. She, her family, and her friends all believe that she can't get into the Celestial Kingdom VIP Heaven unless she is "sealed" to a Mormon husband. I would think that a comprise between you getting missionary discussions and her reading the CES letter would be even. It is not the norm. So while I believe that, in fact, non-celestial families still can be together forever, I also think that there must be great merit to qualifying for the whole Enchiladaвwhich I perhaps cannot fully appreciate at this time.
The best advice I can give is stay true to yourself. I am 27, LDS, and 5 days away from marrying my own amazing non-Mormon man. Also, love how you describe how God has our backs and we can actually act on the notion of things hoped for that are not seen instead of the quaint pseudo idea that all things are known in advance, step by step, and lead to mortal and eternal bliss. Try to have a date night once a week and when your Dr Spouse has time off go somewhere. Let them see the good in you, and believe that their son or daughter has found a good match.
She hasn't submitted the paperwork yet but I have no doubt that she will do this eventually. There is much that needs to change and many hearts to educate but if we doubt some of the fundamentals then why not all of them. I've had friends with spouses that got Fulbrights or grants to study in other countries. I can relate to this post. If you really like this girl, might want to show her this. But I ultimately leave it to him most times. Well, there were other circumstances that made it especially unique and One thing in your favor is the fact that she is in her late 20s by Mormon standards she is already an old maidhopefully she and her family will just want her to have love and not put the pressure on converting you, but there are countless stories of dudes getting dumped on here because ultimately they chose the church. It's hard right now because he's on a general surgery rotation so his hours suck and I never see him.
