My Buddhist husband likes Mormons and even going to church. The dots are extremely close for every LDS person, its just extremely hard to connect them. You will be expected to condone but not attend events in the temple to which you will not be granted access. I think there's a chance you two can find a way to agree on a lifestyle and values. A lot will fall into the shoulder of the other partner who is not a doctor. He is an Anesthesiologist. A wonderful resource tool with great updates. Like many single members of the church, I have often wondered whether I would be willing to marry someone outside of the temple, and over the past few years I have come to believe that I would be willing to do so. I tell her there's no pressure and we'll just see how things play out.
She sounds so indoctrinated that like even if you try to get her to open up, who knows you might get like a BJ out of it doesn't sound like it but who knowsyou have to realize that a lifetime of conditioning will be set in motion in her mind that will make your life hell. Mormonism is fundamental to my religious beliefs and my personal sense of identity, and it is the community that I identify with most strongly. Edit - I just read through some of your other comments. Let them explore and see the many people who love Heavenly Father and serve him with all their heart. While a part of me is sad about not having a temple marriage and getting sealed together I have hope that this could change while we are on this earth and I have faith in an ever-loving Father in Heaven who is kind and just and will be able to provide a way for my family to live together in the eternities. I would never convert. She will want her kids blessed, baptized, taking temple trips to baptize for the dead, hold the priesthood, a bishop will ask you sons and daughters if they masterbate and punish them if they do, etc. How would that motivate you to work out every day to get a girl. Thanks for pointing this stuff out.
Sometimes I complain to my kids and to my husband. It is so hard, so sad and so lonely. Otherwise you're just denying them eternal salvation in their eyes. That's what love is, right. I have dated all walks of TBM women TBM women are closet freaks. I thought it was beautiful that they included him in the circle, even though he was not a Priesthood holder. So I guess, in this case, all's well that Thanks for posting the update. He told me that there is nothing in the world that is more gratifying.
And if he loves you as much as you love him. I love this post and this perspective. I had a lot of things going on in my personal life as well, so maybe a relationship wouldn't have worked regardless. Do you work through parent teacher conferences and the entire soccer season. Im sooooo happy i've found this blog!!. Why do we not talk about Heavenly Mother. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. But I wish he would call or text me or maybe make a sweet gesture every once in awhile. The fact that you bring your query to Joanna Brooks rather than church authorities reveals much. As such, it tends to attract the young and insecure.
