That's okay, but it means your not a match. She won't marry you. The scriptures say that one of the main reasons good people don't join the church is because they just haven't been introduced to it. Sorry ladies, but that's just doesn't cut it for me. Having said that, I believe strongly that it takes a special individual who can remain active in the church and have a non-traditional marriage. I am willing to add his religious observances to our worship as a couple and as a family, but should I also be willing to give up some of my participation in my own faith в for example by attending the temple or Sunday services slightly less often in order to spend more time as an entire family. Thanks again for the help. We have a happy marriage. My wife is living proof that they CAN be worth it.
You have to be willing to share him with his education process. If she is full on Mormon, this relationship will go one of two ways: You will convert and change your entire lifestyle and personality to conform with her expectations never to deconvert or you will face severe penalitesor you will break up because you won't convert and change everything about yourself. This is because they gave up the structure of what made them desirable in the first place. Because I have a husband that is not a member I have a quasi like status in the ward. I also found this interesting and how I found it was just on the web while typing doctors and wive's roles.
Females are not expected to serve and MOST of the girls that do, only do so because they do not have a suitable read: If your GF is an attractive girl and still ended up on a mission then she is about as fanatical as they come and if she isn't already she will be slowly trying to convert you. That said, I would be fully aware that Mormonism is going to compel even the best of them to do some truly horrendous stuff at times. The important things that keep our marriage a happy, healthy, and very loving one are the same things that keep any other marriage alive and well. I wouldn't end a relationship with her, just as I wouldn't deny someone a job, or refuse to socialize with someone who is a Mormon. This makes them overwhelmingly successful wives and mothers. My wife told me she does not want to know if the church is false, so I don't pressure her. I tiptoed into my current relationship with a medical student dating two years, med school is almost overand one of the first things I brought up when he was pursuing me and he pursued me HARD was that I would not be the kind of person that would date a doctor. I didn't even believe.
I had a business, 3 engineering degrees, numerous patents, and was working countless hours a week to try and keep a roof over our heads, make sure she was fed, the house was clean, bills were paid, etc. We have been married 16 years and we got married during the week off in between his first and second year of medical school. Though my mother never openly complained about this, I could see it in her eyes. The point to this story is that when he had any free time he wanted to spend it with me. If you do manage to break her away from the church, her family will be there to continue sowing doubt. Break it off amicably now, before it gets too difficult. I am really in love with him.
