Because I have a husband that is not a member I have a quasi like status in the ward. How do you really feel about that. My kids are now 14, 12 and When they were younger it was so hard to be alone and take care of them.
I'm no pushover; flexing like this just keeps our lives sane. 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. None felt right, ever. Dont aggressively try to destroy her faith but bring up philosophical thinking points. I really like him, and I think we fit together well with personality, values, and life goals. I completely relate to all you've written; many of us have come to see Mormonism for what it is, and the severe damage it does to human brains. If you do believe it fully, are you not really going to want him to make the conversion ultimately. If things get even more serious, try getting her to sign a pre-nup that neither she, nor her family will try to convert you. I think the LDS have been vastly over-simplifying that doctrine.
That means that we are always changing and growing. I hate to be so undiplomatic, but it will always create friction in your life to have this level of religious difference. We are doing long distance at the moment and I was wondering if you have any advice. If everything she is taught is correct and the Mormon church is "true" she should be able to research any anti-Mormon books or movies and prove their criticisms are lies. I've heard way too many stories of people breaking up with amazing people and they end up alone or in a less happy relationship. So I want to know, if you woud have been given the option to take a totally different path and have a fresh start, would you have taken it?.
I'm in the exact same pulling-out-my-hair situation that you are. Because Utah mormons are waayyy different than mormons everywhere else. He apologized up and down. You were a banker too. I'm so glad we waited until now instead of jumping into it right then, because I have learned a ton and the learning curve of being with a doctor is far more steep than it is to be with someone who is not married to their job. She won't marry you. He has let me be a stay-at-home mother while trying to launch my own business and has offered love and support every step of the way. I thought she would grow out of it. Unless you have those same understandings, I'm sad to say the relationship is almost certainly doomed. Can I add to this extremely old thread.
