I believe rules are to be obeyed. Again, reiterating it, don't expect a decade's worth of time with her, but enjoy her good while you two are together. I understand that he us trying to study but I'm doing everything in my power to.
It's like talking to a wall. We are indeed in two different places. 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. Women do not get to hold the priesthood and function in an equal role with men.
Yet another reason I respect doctors so much-their emotional strength. If you can genuinely deconvert her then cool. A lot of people will tell you to run but if she is in her late 20s most Mormon guys her age are married. So how do we approach saving a relationship with someone who has unrealistic expectations of what a long-term relationship looks like. For girls, being the right age for marriage usually means graduating high school, if not later.
In the end, God is a just God. There may be underlying personality similarities, but if the answer to "what shall I do next" is always trumped by a Morman frame of reference for one partner, but not the other, conflict is inevitable. She's a shell of her former self and it breaks by heart to this day. I know we don't know each other, but it seems like we all share a commonality that connects us all very deeply. Drinkers tend to rely on drink before they can have fun. By those standards, I was a failure, my husband wasn't "good enough" - and my daughter had ambitious real goals that required a lot of time and effort. She might not be keeping the Word of Wisdom, living according to the Law of Chastity, or attending church regularly.
