After skimming a lot of these comments it seems like many people have found that the most effective way of coping with their relationship with a doctor is to have low expectations or acknowledge that they will always be second. Interfaith marriage is but one variety of the learning experience. In many ways, she was everything that I ever wanted in a spouse, but in other ways she was not what I ever expected. If you aren't sealed together, say good-bye for eternity. She wants the captain of a ship who can direct all aspects of a relationship, including spiritual direction. But I ultimately leave it to him most times. 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. First and most importantly, I see major trust issues in your future if you both think the other is brainwashed. Now, he has just started a new training in a new country and i am so lonely here. It just seems like I'm never on his mind unless I'm physically in front of him, and then he's sweet as can be.
That's all we're really saying. We agree on honesty and kindness, it doesn't matter what inspires us to pursue that. I do get the odd text but now with 3 weeks to his exam, calls are out of the question.
For the first time in my life, at age twenty-seven, I am in a relationship that is good and loving and serious enough that I believe it may lead to marriage. Then you might want to talk about all the things her church requires. Good luck to both of you on working this out, and if you decide that interfaith marriage is something you can handle and your gentlemen turn out to be the right men for you, then welcome to the club. But, as soon as the marriage happened, the Mormon spouse goes full on Orthodox and expects the non Mormon to comply. Almost everything is complicated. She has to come to the realization that the church may not be infallible, it can't be forced on her or proven to her. My husband has gone from proselytizing and thinking he knows it all to a real spiritual seeker, albeit with a strong testimony in the church. I can honestly say I wish he stayed were he was it has been a long road. Many others have asked the same question in the past so you may want to find those and read the responses there. I decided to sort of play along because she was amazing and I didn't believe some of the things she was telling me she actually believed.
I think nothing really prepared either of us for fellowship though. You will join the church. Hey, thanks for the info. I believe rules are to be obeyed. These were some tips to keep in mind when dating a Mormon guy or girl. So I was falling head over heels for this guy, but in the meantime I didn't feel like we were going anywhere. Log in or sign up in seconds. Mormonism, like many extreme religions, often stunts the growth of its members. I would never change my decision to marry him. Start doing little things even when you are not there.
Great questions, and a terrific answer, Joanna. We still have great sex 3 or 4 times a week and, no, he doesn't use Viagra, Ciasis, etc. I am just starting to get a little panicky and upset about this the more I think about it. You have been blessed with the equipment to make such decisions. Sounds like classic "flirt to convert.
