Like it was mentioned above, see how she deals some of the issues now and if she can't handle it, it might be better to find someone else. While that is the case sometimes, it Is much more of an exception than a rule. My husband and I have a much closer relationship than ever before and I just hope that another blue eyed nurse doesn't come along to distract him. That is why there are home teachers, friends, family members, neighborsвto provide priesthood blessings. He was also born in Russia during the 80s and did not come to the United States until so we sometimes deal with cultural differences as well as religious. If you marry him, you are committing to accepting him without the church and all that this entails. Love the man you are going to marry- warts and all he loves yours as well. I ask myself that every day. As someone born and raised in the church this has been very difficult to moderate and there is some social pressure to become more involved.
Pretty alarming how unsophisticated so many presumably well-educated people's expectations are of marriage. A lot of advice I get from others is that you need to build up hobbies and activities of your own so that I am not just waiting for him to give attention and have time for me. She may have served a mission as an ultimatum to herself.
I decided that if the church taught the general principle that couples should be married in the temple and that was not possible for me if I married this girlthen I should see if my choice would be an exception to the rule. Of course, arguments happened because I felt neglected at times step 1 and 2 studying or he left dirty laundry in the bathroom. I would probably suggest that you cut your losses now. IE в the comment about not having a husband to give priesthood blessings, etc. I am Roman Catholic so I believe almost the exact same things as a regular-non mobot- type mormon This religion Mormonism has a dual identity where some believers are closed mined fools. If you go yourself, you'll see - those people are good people. Your girlfriend might, or maybe IS, going through this. Tell her that you want your relationship with her, and her relationship with your children together to be separate from her religion with her god.
It MAY be true that she will be miserable with him and make him miserable with her. I love how this applies to ALL marriages. There is much that needs to change and many hearts to educate but if we doubt some of the fundamentals then why not all of them. It's easy to be blind to deal-breaking faults when you are young and in love. Order flowers and arrange to have a friend or family member in the area place the flowers for them there. This guy is always busy. This is right for me and for us.
