It sounds like you have found a good one. I didn't even believe. If you think you are, you might be.
In many ways, you yield some authority to the church. Does your new girlfriend have eight brothers and sisters. Yet another reason I respect doctors so much-their emotional strength. My husband has the benefit of having his cake and eating it too.
The fact she's dating you while you aren't a Mormon is at least a sign of hope. In order for him to survive his residency much less thrive in itthe hospital has to come first, he has to come second, and I come in at third place. Good luck and my prayers are with you.
Dating does not necessarily mean an exclusive relationship. Fifty years later, not one of her 3 children, her dozen grandchildren or her numerous great grandchildren is an active member of the LDS church. This opens opportunities for all strong and successful masculine men to gain access to these women.
