I know that she's even getting her stuff ready to go on her mission. I still struggle with the silence in contact or wanting to "rescue" him from the harried schedule. Have lots of sex. Most of us were Mormons and one point, many of us were even TBMs.
I dated many LDS guys before him. It MAY be true that a year in, her shelf will crack and she'll leave with him. He should tell her that he will never convert, and that if she will not be happy unless he does, the relationship should end. I worry it will only be worse when the kids grow older. It is positively shocking. Propagandists in the media throw around the word patriarchy as if it is synonymous with anything male. I miss my husband dearly. Dozens of missionaries have told me that the gender ratios in other countries are far, far worse. That said, I like to hope that love can be more powerful than belief.
I'm not going to hit the town with single ladies and couples find it awkward just inviting you over. This guy was orbiting so strongly that he changed his religion before they were even dating. Other lazy Mormon girls turn feminist, many thousands of them. So you made a wise decision. Or am I just being a pushover and need to demand a little more if he wants to keep seeing me. Consider also the evolving perspective of the potential husband. But he's got to know the aggravation and pain that he likely will face.
You don't have to believe them yourself, but you need that respect in thought as well as action, and you need to frame this as your own journey because you can only change yourself. Which is an absolute lie. And I resent being viewed as just the wife of a doctor rather than my own person with her own accomplishments and aspirations. Hi all, It's really interesting to read all of your experiences and how you've worked through the difficult times. Or the links, in that first vision one. Just go ahead and ask for the definitions and treat it like learning a new language. Read that entire speech and you will see a slew of racist statements.
