I am more compassionate towards people who I would have stigmatized earlier. Our relationship also hasn't really progressed-- we're still only spending the same amount of time together that we were a few months ago. All these are reasons to have some serious discussions. I was spiritually prepared to receive the answer that I sought. You should both sit down and have a serious conversation about what you want and what she wants and if you can both deal with the compromise. I'm not quite bitter but a tad fed up as have given up family, career, friends and started afresh x 2 again to be left alone at the other side of the planet with two young kids, moving house and setting up home with just 4 suitcases. I have a small child home full time with me, millions of miles away from any family. Even after that, the Church discourages youth from entering serious relationships before they are considering marriage. As a non member you can not take her to the celestial kingdom to live with God and get your own worlds to populate with her.
In retrospect, I believe I was being led to my current spouse. I pray the holy Spirit will provide guidance to both of us, and that love conquers all. Also thank God that when he starts his real podiatry job next year he will have steady hours. I think Bob, the answer can be found in your comment. To just see ourselves as support to our husband's "noble" ambitions. There will be pressure to go to church, marry in the temple, Yada Yada You will want to make sure you're ready to battle this for years, maybe a lifetime.
If you can't do that, realizing that your partner may never come around to your side of things, you are not ready to marry this person. What you are potentially choosing is certainly not the easiest path. She went ahead a married a non member. If this happens, it might click something in her mind that says that what she experienced was pleasurable and she would like to have it again. Mormons are one of the few remaining groups with healthy women. They were taught that bold sincerity of purpose and a charitable attitude is what makes a man. 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. My next serious boyfriend was raised Methodist but considered himself non-denominational Christian and people would comment on that instead of his character. What upsets me most is that he didn't realize it was my birthday, or a big one and then that his reaction was to get defensive about his plans rather than offer an alternative for celebrating with me. The Holy Ghost will testify that it is true.
I married a person, not a religion. Why Mormons are not sexist. Attacking other posters is not allowed, but this forum recognizes the difference between a belief and the person holding to that belief. I know a guy who had a hobby of corrupting Mormon girls he was abused by his TBM parentsand I'm told you're both right. Should I jump ship. I currently just started dating someone who is not only in the military, but a doctor. It takes a special person to be a doctor's spouse.
