He started to reflect on how he had become accustomed to missing the day to day moments but these were the big ones that were now being pushed behind his work in priorities. This is such a misinformed statement. God will help you both work this out. Here's my advice though: It doesn't sound like you want that though, so you're going to have to talk to him. Might be worth working through the missionary lessons and CES letter to see if they can agree at least to disagree. If you remain active, Church service is very demanding of our lives в not a Sunday thing. This brings me to the thorniest bit: If your wife is Mormon, your kids will be expected to be Mormon. The fact she's dating you while you aren't a Mormon is at least a sign of hope. He will always downplay it.
Honestly, the thing that makes me the craziest is the missionaries. All's well that ends well A guy named, "Lovable Luciferian" is dating a Mormon Chick. He then proceeded to beat the shit out of her for a decade. And some will do that. For any woman who does not want to sacrifice her career goals…. I don't think we are going to end up being friends but I'll get over that. And, for anyone "dating" a married doctor. She's most likely secretly playing out fantasies of converting you, marrying you in a Mormon temple, and having a very Mormon life, OP.
I think nothing really prepared either of us for fellowship though. Great questions, and a terrific answer, Joanna. I don't think you "dodged a bullet" but I do think new residents change Other wives told me my husband would "come back" but we are still in the training so I can't tell you whether that is completely true or not. While Scientology is way worse hopefully the parallels will get her thinking. She probably has not studied the real truths behind Mormonism and thinks her beliefs are the only way to become a God while living eternally with family in the life hereafter. Disney gives them the fantasy where they can easily achieve a standard of perfection with low risk. Early in our relationship, I gave some thought to the question of whether I would ever be willing to marry a non-Mormon. Modest dressing is the best policy here. Do you want to be married in the temple. That is speaking from my own relationship.
No easy answers here. Don't have any support as family is too far away and we're always on the move. But you can't make her think about the numerous facts that disprove Mormonism. All around me, I am being asked if I am ready to be a doctor's wife, and do I know what is expected of me. There are other occasions for humor, but these two are off the table. Why would you behave any different now.
