I can be part of a church family whether my spouse goes or not. Again, reiterating it, don't expect a decade's worth of time with her, but enjoy her good while you two are together. Still, I would be interested to hear your perspective and that of your readers. Thank you for this blog. I was born and raised in the LDS faith. Although I do want a long term relationship and to eventually start a family I am NOT going to give up my dream of becoming a physician. Fellowship was worse and now that my doc has been an attending for 2 years, it is worse than it has ever been. Communicate and get those answers, OP. If you can't, then it's best to move on.
We'll have to discuss that, now that I actually know some things about some things. I'm beginning to think that it should be a monthly visit no matter what. Make sure she knows the plan, so you both can dress appropriately. As a general authority I knew, now deceased, told me in the mid-eightiesвIf you find a good man who is not LDS, marry him. Initially I thought he would join the church and life would get back on the only track I knew. By the way I work full time about 60 hours a week with my company and seem to never miss anything for my kid and can do all his bullshit also. Don't let her try to bring in the missionaries to explain; remind her that she is an RM and knows all they do and probably much more. My surgeon husband of 12 years just made himself a "free agent" when he cheated on me and our three kids with a gal 12 years his junior. Are they a functioning member in society. She will not marry you until you convert to mormonism whole cloth.
Ok, so what concerns do you have about the biggest difference of allвwhen your child brings home a potential mate of a completely different gender. Our relationship is not perfect, not easy, but absolutely amazing. Should one belief system or lack of one take priority and why. She is showing a common attitude of distrust for "anti-mormon" material. I wanted very much to make it work with us, and was willing to compromise in areas that I normally wouldn't.
Some of the guests talked about the importance of helping hard core mormons to be open and accepting to ALL their brothers and sisters in the church, regardless of sexual orientation. Mixed races, however, are NOT tied into opposing beliefs and mixed races don't try to "convert" each other. I realize that the answers to many of these questions may be different for every family, and that we need to continue to discuss them more as a couple as we continue to think about our future. Obviously don't make any commitments further in the relationship because you do not want to be married into an insane orthodox LDS family because it will cause alot of troubles. Marriage is simply not an option to me there. Ok, so what concerns do you have about the biggest difference of allвwhen your child brings home a potential mate of a completely different gender. All this said, God is love and fully understands and appreciates your problem. Until then I didn't have much of a problem with his lifestyle because I still had my freedom and could focus as much as I wanted on a career. I find that one of the most important things is to make sure you have a support system, whether they are other doc wives, family or friends. You and your fiancee might want to get in touch with one to work out the day-to-day issues of an interfaith marriage.
