This was hugely disappointing for him and created some very tense times. Look, as a shelia, its no different from a bloke. Ask questions, try to find out as much as you can. He just started studying for the boards. I felt her fear, everything she's said, I said. There have been times in the last three years that we have had to live paycheck to paycheck so the idea of a rich doctor is antiquated in most cases. From reading the above posts from previous posters, please keep in mind that while it helps to read and learn from each others' experiences as we are all in the same boat -- we must also make the distinction between someone's occupation and their personality or character. If you try to deconvert her I suggest indirectly at first.
Unless you have those same understandings, I'm sad to say the relationship is almost certainly doomed. It sounds like you have found a good one. It's easy to forget why I chose to be with him in the first place.
He also has sacrificed a more easy lifestyle. Sorry you had to go through this, but it's for the best if she's about to leave on a mission. He also brought up issues with the church when we discussed religion so slowly he brought to light some disturbing facts and even though I would have denied it, it got to me. Pants-to-Church Sunday left me a bit bruised.
The point of a date is to get to know someone better. But what if your girlfriend is Mormon, but not active in the Church. This has been a good distraction when she's doing awkward shifts but coordinating time together can be difficult. There may be underlying personality similarities, but if the answer to "what shall I do next" is always trumped by a Morman frame of reference for one partner, but not the other, conflict is inevitable. As you can see Also, the fact that she served a mission is evidence of her dedication to the religion. Keep your power, girls, and keep the marriage egalitarian. It would be ludicrous to think otherwise.
