So you stay calm, stay pleasant, and try not to let it eat you alive. Her beliefs are innocous but ultimately a death sentence for this relationship. She is going on a mission which means she is heavily invested in performing according to the cultural expectations. I decided to do the mormon thing and just not think about it too much right now. A grandpa sense of humor and occasional clever line from an old movie go a long way. My number one question is about family - I want him to be able to be around for kids when that time comesso how realistic is it to expect him to be there for their sporting games or whatever they're doing. Although it may indeed be a good idea to get out of this one, we all need to keep in mind that the situation is more complex than that. We are still struggling to put our life back together for the sake of our marriage and our 3 boys, but it is a difficult path. If you think you are, you might be.
I am a very independent person socially so I often do not think to call people just because I am fine doing things myself. Can you live your whole life with a husband you doesnt or never will believe in the mormon church. If I even mention wanting to talk just about normal life things, I am told not to tilt the balance between problems and fun.
I'm a nevermo, but I married a then TBM girl, so maybe my perspective will be of help to you. Be open to the wisdom the Spirit will share. It was totally eye-opening.

When my husband and I were sealed, I finally understood why my Dad had been stressing this to me my entire life. I find that having zero expectations, single parenting and having my own life makes our marriage work well. You got some good advice from the other posters on how to maintain contact.

On your own dime. Since internship started, I always feel disappointed with my fiance'. He is coming to church with me and our daughter for the ward Christmas program. Its always for his prior commitment that we always end up cancelling our plan of being together. Do you want a home that is focused on the church with all of the blessings there of or a home that is devoid of the blessings of the priesthood, Sundays without your husband at your side at church with your children celebrating in the gospel. Discover the joys of a non-sexual relationship and find sincere ways to show affection without sex. I decided to do the mormon thing and just not think about it too much right now. I am literally too lazy to get up and get the computer. Many Mormon girls place the cart before the horse. Love Notes for Him.
If it seems one is unable to find a spouse within the church, which commandment do you keep. We have been married a mere 3. She hasn't submitted the paperwork yet but I have no doubt that she will do this eventually. No doubt that some will be valiant up on the other side of the veil, but just as sure there will others who will reject salvation because of their high mindedness.
