Am I ready for this. Btw, you bringing up CES letter shit before thanksgiving will guarantee a very awkward time with the GF and probably the family for the day. One red flag I have for Mormon girls is if they drink coffee. All that being said, no one can tell you what is right for you except Heavenly Father.
So there's THAT to look forward to. The big one is that under Mormon theology both of you must be believing, fully active members to live together in the afterlife. I made the decision not to have those things when I married a non-member. In my home ward, the non-member son of one of the members of the Bishopbric was able to stand up with the Priesthood and hold his baby girl while they gave her baby blessing. But this phase isn't going to be short. His superiors will determine when he takes time off. Not all of us are able to achieve that ideal but we are to strive for it. Marriage is serious business and we are in it together despite our spouses shortcomings.
Glad I found this post. Life is too short. Where do you find Mormon girls. But is it the path that will make you the happiest. At best they just try to include you in the community, and at worst you are constantly told that you'll be welcome "when you're ready. Raising our children as believers is proving to be very tricky. I can only say that I was that girl, 10 years ago. Sadly, the general consensus of "convert or nope out" sounds like what will end up happening. It won't be easy.
My father told him it's never too late to leave whether we are married with kids or just engaged. I met him today and we talked about what he wants to do in the future. Even if the church believes a bunch of crazy nonsense, and she believes it too, I still really like her and would like to see whether we can have some good intellectual conversations about this stuff. Gem With Flaws Joined: While I do talk to my boyfriend everyday, it's usually not for long periods of time. I wanted so badly to marry a guy who had recently left the church.
