Maybe if I met him at another point in time, things would have worked with us. If she was anything like me, that idea is probably foreign, radical, confusing, interesting, and inspiring to her. She may have served a mission as an ultimatum to herself. I know you got a zillion replies, and I have not read them.
Edited 1 time s. She will not marry you until you convert to mormonism whole cloth. There is still a chance you can work out your differences, but it will require major concessions on both sides. Notify me of new posts via email. Not in endless discussions of temple marriage, not ever.
She will never retire. Is it just the expectation that the SOs of people in these fields are on the backburner. You might start drinking to ease the pain. MinsPackage speaks the truth.
I knew a couple in my last ward who got married in their mid 20's. I have many friends and members of my family who married within the church and later divorced. When we obsess over it we start acting like a customer in a clothing store wondering what he or she will look like if they wear that particular wardrobe. The Mormon church is certainly a time consuming church. A lot of advice I get from others is that you need to build up hobbies and activities of your own so that I am not just waiting for him to give attention and have time for me. It's been really tough and am only hoping to see a glimpse of the reward soon, whether it is simply watching a movie and actually finish it in one sitting or finally having dinner in the same room. Given the fact that doctors, esp surgeons, have a very busy life in US, it seems logical. Not his wife and kids.
