So I understand how it's easy to believe nonsense when you're brainwashed from birth, and how it can be comforting to believe your life is somehow very important in the grand scale of the universe, and how you don't have to be afraid of death because you'll go on to a better place where you'll live happily ever after for eternity. This sub is a great place to do that. I am so grateful to have had the ability to instill in them that family comes first. Mormonism is a lot more controlling and has a lot more downsides. I have a better and fuller relationship with God because my own practice has been supplemented by additional observance. Now Knowing your husband is surrounded by good looking women, makes you pray for them even harder. I was thinking about this last night after listening to Radio West. They have heavy-handed laws, free handouts, unfair advantages for getting jobsвa loud feminist illusion spoon fed to them. My daughter thinks it's funny that she's known her SO 4 years - not ready for marriage.
You will desire to have that eternal marriage, to have that support in taking kids to church, to be able to talk docterine with a like-minded individual. They value femininity, motherhood, and masculinity in men. Ask her on dates. That was hard on my relationship and I had to give up on my dream of being a computer programmer. Now, they are limited to only 80 hours per week. If I were you, I would sever the relationship and find someone else. So marrying a doctor might be ideal for me. Just trying to make it through the week.
If we do, I will be back to share my experiences. Unconditional love, excellent communication, and unwavering support. That will most likely be the deal breaker for her. I have believed in for better for worse but I cant do it any longer. You should be fine as long as you stick to the lines you have laid out. I got to thinking about how I and others in my ward might react if a same sex couple attended church and how those views might WILL, fingers crossed change over the next decade. She is considered "an old maid" by Mormon standards, so she may be willing to marry you--hoping you will convert someday --but she will constantly be reminded that your marriage is inferior to the "Eternal Families" of sealed Mormons, and she will fear dying and never seeing her loved ones again. Anyway, I'm sad and disappointed and I know that it will be my job to keep the marriage together.
Yes, those of us in the hospital work longer and harder days than most people with 9 to 5s, but we still have off days. Again, I deeply love my dad, but these were things that I had to deal with. I'm sorry you may be hearing a lot of negativity from us.
