That of course does not mean all eternal marriages should have been entered into or will succeed. If you like her, and I'm assuming you do, I would suggest you continue the relationship and see how things pan out. Also, don't forget, some people just arent very good at conveying emotions. When the weather is nice outside, I crave for a walk with my husband, but have to tell myself he is busy saving lives. By the time you are done, you'll have all of the basics down and will have the framework to know what to ask next without any confusion. When I was 19, my boyfriend considered himself an atheist. Can you live your whole life with a husband you doesnt or never will believe in the mormon church.
She has to come to the realization that the church may not be infallible, it can't be forced on her or proven to her. While it's true that Mormons are not one-dimensional and completely predictable, the odds of a successful relationship, given the OP's description of his girlfriend, are slim. The ones who already had concerns start questioning. I suggest you develop a busy calender so you'll be occupied because you'll get dizzy thinking in circles. If you can't do that, realizing that your partner may never come around to your side of things, you are not ready to marry this person.
I'll definitely talk with her about my concerns, and will be spending time with her family over the upcoming holidays so that will be a good chance to see how they treat me. There are all kinds of Mormons, and we as exmormons should know better than to stereotype our former selves. My wife expects me to understand her situation but whiles I am willing to understand, I wish she would make some effort to etch out some quality time for us when she is not stressed out and grumpy and irritable. The church is very important to her. I know a Doctor who drug his wife and 2 children across the US to begin his residency. I am not quite a spouse of a doctor. Forty plus years later I met my incredibly wonderful fabulous Mormon husband. I never thought fellowship would be worse than residency and boy was I wrong. Word to the wise, wait a day or two.
Most couples who are married where one is a Mormon and the other isn't, usually stems from a situation where they both were married in the temple, then one of them lost their faith sometime after that. She's really attractive, too. No matter what anyone says. I wouldn't purposefully subject my daughters to that BS. I almost left the marriage,3xs. Joanna mentioned that our theology is rich with opportunities for second chances. Hi I have read all your comments and although I am not married to a Doctor my dad was a Doctor and I think marrying a Doctor is no different to marrying any man who works with his own ambitions. Today, at my ward sacrament meeting, in the back section of the chapel where I was sitting, all the women except one were Mormon wives in interfaith families. Through this, if you run into unforeseen issues like sold out movies or you cannot get a seat at a restaurant, you will always have a backup plan.
