OP Have you seen the Brother Jake videos. She asked me the other night how it's possible for me to be such a good person when I don't believe in god. Her Religion is the single most important thing in her life. My parents met when my mom was in 8th grade and married when she was I think my sister married fastest and knew her husband at least 18 months, dating for at least half that. With his compartmentalized mind, if I walk away, he will close that door and move on. Fifty years later, not one of her 3 children, her dozen grandchildren or her numerous great grandchildren is an active member of the LDS church.
She is now happy with her uber-Mormon boyfriend and I am happily dating other people as well. Fellowship was worse and now that my doc has been an attending for 2 years, it is worse than it has ever been. Tell her that you want your relationship with her, and her relationship with your children together to be separate from her religion with her god. With his compartmentalized mind, if I walk away, he will close that door and move on. I've started to get annoyed when close friends approach him for medical guidance. I visit him every month, we managed to go on weekend trips when he's off and he's spend all his vacay time with me and his family.
All of my siblings who married in the church 1 discussed getting married on the first date 2 were engaged within two months, and 3 were married within six months. And it was the most miserable and lousy choice I ever made. Toxic is the right word. What can you expect. I think she felt that it was important for me to understand the types of challenges in an interfaith marriage. Include your email address to get a message when this question is answered. Honestly, I have given up on lds men as a single 25 year old. 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.
How do Mormons feel about contraception. Ask questions, try to find out as much as you can. Love Notes for Him. I married for companionship but now all I do is wait for him to stop working, to come home, to call me back, to have time, which is hardly ever. Early in our relationship, I gave some thought to the question of whether I would ever be willing to marry a non-Mormon. Medicine is not an easy lifestyle for anyone, and sometimes the only thing that gets me through is knowing that at the end of the day or twoI get to come home to my loving husband.
