Thank you for this site. A stereotype I hope will be destroyed someday, but not today. I have been married to a doctor for 5 years now and we have two children.
And, as I was writing the reply, above, those thoughts went through my head. She is considered "an old maid" by Mormon standards, so she may be willing to marry you--hoping you will convert someday --but she will constantly be reminded that your marriage is inferior to the "Eternal Families" of sealed Mormons, and she will fear dying and never seeing her loved ones again. If she says that the mission was the greatest experience and best two years of her life, any chance you have at a normal long-term healthy relationship is dim unless you convert. Avoid the topic when you can, it's not something that'll be pretty unless handled in a calm discussion which Well, people as a whole tend to be pretty immature with big topics. Fall in love, learn, make some mistakes, laugh, serve other people, reproduce, and let the whole story start again. I don't mean to be rude, but she's not gonna give up her "nonsense". Narcissism, androgyny, obsession with pop cultureвthe problems with Western women go on and on. It isn't money that he is just throwing around on useless things, its for dinner movies normal date stuff that people do over a course of a month and we cram into one weekend. I had this issue with my husband and I had to straight out tell him what I needed because he had no clue.
He told me that there is nothing in the world that is more gratifying. Having no expectations and being flexible is very important. Because service is important in the Mormon faith, she may be interested in doing something that will help others, like helping someone clean their yard. There will be sacrifices but I am hopeful. 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.
This is by design. Why Mormons don't hate gay people. Can I leave him now. Somehow snow days when everyone else is off, I feel like my husband is the only one working I know there are many but it is very hard. In the end, if the guy is the keeper you say he is then go with your gut. But the lies sting some people. He was not a prominent man in the church.
