Have been MD in good relationship for 25 years with kids etc but key is that my wife has her own life and works as hard as I do at her own career and isn't caught up in my world. When you try to explain to them why the church would not publish said info on their own website they get mad at you and tell you you're ignorant. And right at that moment when I'm about to tell him this, and give him some kind of ultimatum, I hesitate.
By the end of the first date with my husband I knew I wanted him to be a part of my life. That would only encourage her to give up other standards that really are serious and to become like the typical Western degenerate. I am getting increasingly more resentful of the times I think he can choose us instead of residency. I believe when you die, you die, and you live on in memories and hearts. He's just not that into you. He's currently working in the ER and waiting to start his residency. Is he aware that if your children are faithful members of the church they might end of marrying in the temple and he would not be allowed to attend the ceremony. I'll bring up some CES letter issues, let her know why I wouldn't want my children raised like this, and we'll see what happens. Since her father is a bishop, I'm sure he'll want to have his daughter marry a temple worthy person. Don't expect a traditional marriage I am sorry for your story.
I guess I was just hoping there was way for it to work. It is the greatest sadness of her life. And if you do belong to a ward full of cretins, you must do everyone a favor and just ignore them until they go extinct. We started dating 16 years ago, and both resigned from the church earlier this year. It's not that she doesn't believe you right now, but it is a bone she will never drop. It's all about timing, and you're in two different places. Did everything in my power to support him, whether it be financial, emotional, etc.
We're giving it to you straight because we hope to help you avoid the heartache many of us have experience due to the harmful teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Their values and the values of popular western culture are wildly disparate, which can be tough for them to navigate early in life. So any support on how to deal with ocd behavior, heavy handed opinions, would be helpful.
