Next year we are getting married but I already see a tough life ahead of me. I made a conscious decision to marry outside the church for my own reasons. Sexuality is the enemy of romance, and romance is amazing. She needs to be, and maybe she will get there. It MAY be true that she will not marry him unless he converts. 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. Just like having children, you don't know what you have until you live it. Do you want a home that is focused on the church with all of the blessings there of or a home that is devoid of the blessings of the priesthood, Sundays without your husband at your side at church with your children celebrating in the gospel. 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.
