I want him to commit more to his family and himself. RUN like the wind. Great post and so very true. Yes have moved away from family at 7 months pregnant to knowing no-one and starting from scratch and having no support network especially from husband who couldn't wait to get away and had the cheek to say he dreaded coming home some nights, poor him, I dreaded being home most days. My plan was to start school as soon as I got married but when he was told he would be going to another hospital, my masters got put on hold. A straight-laced, returned sister missionary, raised in the cult, and in family of similarly entrenched cult members, will not likely remain happy with a non-member. So that's something I can't say is good or bad. And if you can make it to the Tree of Life and still be with your partner, guess what.
I wish you all well on your recovery from this particularly vile church.
In our church, women are treated with more respect, and are considered to have a literal free ticket to heaven, simply bu because their female. I also just care about him enough and admire his reasons for becoming a doctor that I'm willing to make sacrifices so that his life is easier.
I can only say that I was that girl, 10 years ago. Drives me a bit crazy. It MAY be true that a year in, her shelf will crack and she'll leave with him. Righteous love does conquer all but in some cases it takes a lot longer than we are willing to wait. I am a non-Mormon who moved to Utah for college. I did in college, and knew I would play 2nd fiddle to the lifelong dream. If you end up marrying a true believing Mormon, your marriage will be a threesome. Well if she knew or ever found out, in her eyes you'll be a loathsome perverted deviant in need of sex addiction counseling. You should start raising CES letter issues with her and see how she handles it. As the patriarchal leader, it will be up to you to figure it out and to dispel her unrealistic fantasies.
This can make it harder for you two to do things together. It's the extra socializing, hanging out with residents, stopping by the hospital to visit his best friend. She may have served a mission as an ultimatum to herself. My seminary teacher went off on me about dating a non Mormon when I was talking about going to his prom. After our first kiss she lets me know she won't have sex with me because she's mormon and we'd need to be married first. It sounds like you dont even know this guy well enough to answer that question but I could be wrong. She is passionate about it. We will occasionally go as long as days without talking at all, and when we do sometimes we go a full day between responding to each other's texts. I can accept her, and she's told me she can accept me The challenging part for me now is the idea of putting my kids through the brainwashing. Whatever your leaders have said, consider their counsel, give it the weight it deserves, then counsel with your Heavenly Father about your own situation.
Every school events, social gathering, especially weekend calls is making me sad. Without going into too much personal detail, I received a very real, strong prompting that I should marry this girl. She said we couldn't watch it because the lady who produced the doc was formerly a professor at BYU but has since left the church, so she wouldn't have anything good to say.
But I was unusual in that I never really wanted to convert my husband I was worried I'd have to divorce him if he turned true Mormon and he didn't need me to believe way he does. I don't think I can do it again.
