Scrubs season 2
Please start another thread and continue the conversation. The first key question to as is: If the answer is yes then the relationship sounds like it's doomed. This came about after many hours and many days of prayer, scripture study, going to the temple, receiving a priesthood blessing, and speaking with people I greatly trust my mom, especially. My kids have run as far away from medicine as possible in terms of a career and my daughter only dates people who have balance in their lives. Part of me wants to say Yes!!. It broke my shelf, we left as an entire family, and our marriage is better than ever. Raising our children as believers is proving to be very tricky. 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. When my daughter needs challenged in soccer, I took her everywhere, I studied vocabulary list with them, wrote essay with them, math facts……. I love my non-member husband of nearly 20 years.
Is forever possible with a doctor??. There's this fantasy perpetuated in the religion that if you're good and pure enough, that any man you meet would eventually see the truth and join the church for you. You can even spice it up with a little "desperate housewives lifestyle".
How is that gonna work. I'm not saying you shouldn't pursue the relationship, but I'd only recommend marrying her if she leaves the church because she discovers it's not true. I am so in need of a support group. I realize that the answers to many of these questions may be different for every family, and that we need to continue to discuss them more as a couple as we continue to think about our future. I wouldn't wish this shit on my enemy. Maybe you do, too. I know a non-Mormon guy who married a Mormon woman and has kept her beautiful and desirable, by encouraging her religious involvement, even though he avoided Mormonism himself. Some day he hopes to make it to Romania and settle down. Listen, you are in a bad situation and it just has not come to a head yet. He probably hates even the memory of me for getting him in that stupid church.
Log in or sign up in seconds. My husband and I have been together since we were year-olds at university trying to figure out where we stood with the faiths we had grown up in. Is this a sign of my own weakness. Maybe things would be have different if I had been older or if I had not been so fragile. Put your best foot forward; be soft-spoken, courteous, well-mannered, chivalrous, and respectful. I find that I walk on egg shells when he is home. About two years into our marriage, I got sick of waiting in bed for him to come read scriptures with me. That's our best option. Be with a nice guy and a doctor who will not put himself or his love for money first or his ego first. It was a complete turn around from what I'd previously seen from her but obviously it was something she'd been thinking about.
It is hard work. A quiet, hard working immigrant but dedicated and faithful. Sadly, my ward shuns us. Living in an interfaith, marriage can be hell. In the end people have to make their own decisions.
