I believe in temple marriage, and in the importance of those covenants. She is passionate about it. I read through a few of the LDS. And the nonmember spouse may just put pressure on the member spouse to spend more time with them. But there are many people on here who truly devoutly believed in Mormonism and broke free. Toxic is the right word. They are taught to refrain from smoking, drinking, or experimenting with drugs. All this said, God is love and fully understands and appreciates your problem. I've found it extremely difficult particularly as he does not know how to communicate.
Marriage is hard, period. A lot of Mormons escape that pitfall and can put people first. Learn all you can. Here are my thoughts as someone who grew up with a non-mormon father and as someone who married a non-mormon girl. They believe that the body is a temple that needs to be worshiped, and that inner beauty is more important. As Joanne mentioned, should you marry interfaith, you will have lots of help from fellow ward members on converting your spouse. Yes; I suppose if each of us believe the other is brainwashed, there's going to be major problems later on. That isn't fair on you, and again will create stress and a stress point in the relationship. It is tempting for Mormon girls to become lazy because they have such a high standard compared to typical girls. I had no idea how hard it could get.
