Then you complain when the polish of being married to a doctor wears off and you grow callused to the money and big house. Don't tiptoe around the issue. You need to disabuse them of this notion. I admit it is sometimes depressing going to bed without him and getting up seeing him still studying but I am sure we will survive this. If you end up marrying a true believing Mormon, your marriage will be a threesome. But of course this does not mean that mixed religion children cannot grow up to be LDS stalwarts. It's not impossible, just painful and unlikely. I am in the IT field, and so have no medical knowledge at all.
Another simple and doable option is to go online; there are many LDS dating sites where you can sign up and meet new and interesting people. You need to do this ceremony first where you end up pledging all your money and property to the church: It's cruel to suggest it. How would that motivate you to work out every day to get a girl. At what age do you baptize. Just trying to make it through the week. And that fairly constant theme has some deep implications your girlfriend will have to face. There are many professions that leave the spouse carrying the bulk of every day family life. His single doctor friends have so much more time and money to spend on lavish overseas holidays and recreational activities, while every spare moment the husband has to spend at home, helping with the children and all the responsibilities that entails. I'm sorry you may be hearing a lot of negativity from us. Plan on her family trying to torpedo your relationship if you don't convert.
Thank you thank you for writing this blog. Did my heart good. However, be careful to not ask something that may offend your date. Mormons defintely play by a different rule set. For any woman who does not want to sacrifice her career goals…. For the official Church websites, please visit LDS. You need to do something interesting and keep her faith up. 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. I also think that if marriage outside the covenant is a sin, it is not so grave as to be unforgivable. It is really hard and so good to see that I am not alone in this.
Be prepared for divorce. My husband started a solo practice and the last few years have been very difficult on our marriage- financially as well as personally. It is nice to hear that I am not alone, and that we can do it. I am also going thru the same thing. And I never found that "good Mormon girl". I wouldn't end a relationship with her, just as I wouldn't deny someone a job, or refuse to socialize with someone who is a Mormon. Real love just happens. The two of you can get married in the temple and live together forever for eternity. In many ways, you yield some authority to the church.
