This is wonderful and in accordance with the desires of a loving Father in Heaven, but it can turn a marriage on its ear, if the spouse is unprepared. A lot of Mormons think that good people will obviously recognize the truthfulness of the church and quickly join. I'm dating a Mormon girl right now but we both understand that it is most likely isn't going to last long. Go on dates on days other than Sunday. Odds are majorly against this dude. Interreligious marriages are not a new thing. Honestly, it isn't her fault. As Joanna said, marriage takes some work no matter what, but being married to your best friend, and listening to the spirit brings great blessings.
But then when we do spend time together I have an absolute blast and everything just goes so well that I end up liking him even more. The Mormon church is certainly a time consuming church. If you like her, and I'm assuming you do, I would suggest you continue the relationship and see how things pan out. I can honestly say this isn't worth it. On her mind, her eternal salvation depends on marrying a worthy priesthood holder. The man had essentially been in acadamics his whole life and was emotionally immature. Yes, I have considered alternatives. They don't have control so they easily a Fall prey to other doctors and nurses etc.
But my choice seems to be build a life so I am not lonely all the time or stay at home waiting for him to have time for me. The church is very important to her. Then I do my own work I am a recruiter and I work remotely most of the time, which is incredibly convenient for our relationship. She's really attractive, too.
She ends on a positive note: You are a flawed and unique human being, with excellent training and an admirable sense of purpose. You would think surrounded by kids and being off every day would not be lonely but never having anyone to share your kids achievements with in person is hard. Should one belief system or lack of one take priority and why. Do you have any specific suggestions for discussion about content on LDS. What a bozza topic. I fear the idea of growing to resent him. At the end of the second date I knew I needed him in my life. After dating a doctor for 5 years and finally realizing that what I'm dealing with is an excessive need for being put on a pedestal and adulation by mainly female colleagues of lower professional rank nurses I decided to move on. This can also be the basis for forming important friendships, and learning proper skills for social interaction.
