She is a returned missionary, and won't Marry you if you want to stay atheist. Even after that, the Church discourages youth from entering serious relationships before they are considering marriage. My doctor husband also has a daughter from a previous marriage who he travels to see every other weekend. A lot of shared hobbies, interests, life goals. This is by design. We do have cancelled Skype dates and rescheduled phone calls but when I really need him he puts his needs aside. First of all, Mormons are people so there is a spectrum of what they actually believe on a personal level, and what beliefs are most important to them. And yet I have such profound respect for his role in our community.
I suppose it depends on your personality. That's all we're really saying. I wouldn't just start bringing up the ces letter and the problems in it. And of course we have been taughtвby Brigham Young, at leastвthat even when Christ comes during the Millenium there will be those who will not accept him as their Savior even if they accept him as the leader of the world. All he says is that it wouldn't change the amount of time that he works. I also didn't want to push him away by overwhelming him with talks about commitment when he's already stressed. That's a really sad story.
I would like to compliment the brave ladies for being the strong spouse and keeping the marriage moving forward. It has already taken him us 3 years since he got out of school and finally just matched this year. But I love him. Sure it's lonely and hard work being a "single parent". I'm doing the best I can, I try to travel to visit family but again it would be just me and my son.
Then she took a vacation to Utah and in her letter to me she stated that she had seen the Temple, and I never heard from her again. You should be fine as long as you stick to the lines you have laid out. In retrospect, I believe I was being led to my current spouse. There are many professions that leave the spouse carrying the bulk of every day family life. If you are married to your best friend, then love him unconditionally, share the struggles, accept the sacrifices and know that if he could, he would rather be with you than with a sick or dying patient. Don't think your life is going to be all rainbows and great lifestyles.
