Bet as Joanna has said there are some things you should think carefully about в and this needs to be done with your head, not your heart. This woman is a human being, not a caricature of a TBM. This is a reply to all. I made the decision not to have those things when I married a non-member. Listen to the still small voiceв. He will have to wait outside if his children marry in the temple. You aren't engaged or married or anything, you can't just know that she won't see the light and remain crazy Mormon forever. I forgot to mention that we've only been dating for 6 mo. She is passionate about it. She asked me to read that site and write down questions.
I can honestly say I wish he stayed were he was it has been a long road. I am a 20 year old premed student and have been in a relationship for three years. And if it's notyou need to find someone in a different field. It just plain sucks. 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. I was spiritually prepared to receive the answer that I sought. Anyone with experience dating a doctor or another insanely busy person. We are fighting and he has no patience which I understand but its really hard to accept for me because I feel like I need more from him out of the relationship. Mormon girls are thirsting for strong, confident, masculine men. She is considered "an old maid" by Mormon standards, so she may be willing to marry you--hoping you will convert someday --but she will constantly be reminded that your marriage is inferior to the "Eternal Families" of sealed Mormons, and she will fear dying and never seeing her loved ones again.
I would probably suggest that you cut your losses now. Just know what your getting into. It really can be that simple. She is a returned missionary, and won't Marry you if you want to stay atheist. Many others have asked the same question in the past so you may want to find those and read the responses there. Thanks so much for all the time you've put into your replies. I recall reading a talk from Elder Nelson in which he indicated that the church teaches general principles and does not spend time teaching exceptions to general principles. I think it might be worth trying. I knew a guy who joined the Mormon church because he thought it would help him date a certain Mormon girl, a girl who refused to date non-Mormons.
I feel like now more than ever, I am expected to just not have an opinion about anything or even a say in how we spend our time together. It seems to me like you are walking into a relationship where there is a significant disconnect from the start. If you have children how will they be raised.
