Mormons have separate congregations for young single adults, which is very convenient. What you are potentially choosing is certainly not the easiest path. These girls are nervous around non-Mormons. Once she realizes you won't join and she can't get married in the temple, then I suspect everything will be over. Instead, I found someone outside the cult and we've been married almost 32 years She's looking for a dedicated priesthood holder who will take her to the temple. About ten years ago, I realized I needed to quit qualifying my excellent husband who is a better man than many Mormon men I knowI realized I needed to raise my kids to think of him as completely equal to the men they knew at church. The important thing is that you are getting to know one another, not that you are always doing fancy things. Rawkcuf, maybe your comment is like your name and intended backwards, but what do you mean by differences between races. This is by design. The church didn't do it to her but it helped create the environment that allowed it to happen.
I hear you, I need my down time to decompress and watch stuff on the Internet, haha. If your spouse believes in infant baptism, will you allow the children to have that. If you go to mormonthink. We started to communicate our needs more clearly, rather than tiptoeing, and we started to compromise. Thanks so much for all the time you've put into your replies. Good communication, love, support and understanding are the things you should consider. I don't think you should abandon the relationship just because she is lds. Because Mormons retain old-fashioned values, Mormon girls are raised in a traditional environment by good fathers. It means that before anything else, you have to be clear in saying that you want to date a Mormon girl.
Well the pieces will all fall into place. The two of us are going on an overnight this weekend. I find that having zero expectations, single parenting and having my own life makes our marriage work well.
It is a decision he has to come to on his own - hopefully all sped up when he looks around at his current dating pool and eating way too much McDonalds. All he says is that it wouldn't change the amount of time that he works. 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. Also don't ask questions that are too intrusive, or those that you would not like to answer yourself. Perhaps it was just her personality but I find most doctors repulsive. He has always kept her at the side, devoting almost equal time to me and her. This is by design. We have been together for just over a year and married for 3 months. Pray about it and follow your heart. Why Mormons are not sexist.
