She might want to follow the 'virgin until marriage' part, or she may personally decide to forego following that in secret. I eventually found out that she did not pass the exams and have requested that I don't contact her again. He said that if there is an exception, it is for the individual to obtain through the spirit. It is not easy for a nonmember spouse to understand a three hour worship block plus callings etc. I think love and caring can be more important. She probably has not studied the real truths behind Mormonism and thinks her beliefs are the only way to become a God while living eternally with family in the life hereafter.
