During "Netflix and chill" the other night, I noticed there was a documentary about mormons. If I even mention wanting to talk just about normal life things, I am told not to tilt the balance between problems and fun. Funny thing is he told me when we met that he was ready to stop focusing so much on work and start focusing more on his life. Thanks for springing that one on me OB.
I did in college, and knew I would play 2nd fiddle to the lifelong dream. I don't think you should abandon the relationship just because she is lds. Do not make anything risque public. Certainly there are such people in the church, but there are such people in any organization, and I would challenge you to remember that the members are also individuals with thoughts, feelings and the ability to rebel in their own ways. But you will benefit if you can help him maintain his strength. You have to make the decision as to what you want your home and your children to have in that home. My family says I should leave him….
Although I do want a long term relationship and to eventually start a family I am NOT going to give up my dream of becoming a physician. Otherwise her family will likely feel incomplete to her. Look for girls in your singles ward. Im a 19 year old female who is pre med at a university right now. She was fine marrying in an LDS church instead of the temple, didn't want to convert me, and most importantly didn't try to change my beliefs or opinions. In the end people have to make their own decisions. Why Mormons are not sexist.
Really have to walk in someone's shoes to understand. Realize that your Dr spouse isn't intentionally wanting to make you feel lonely or depressed, and they most likely feel as isolated by their work as you do. I just wanted to let SN and AD know that, if you decide to choose this path, you are not alone.
