To her, if you don't marry in the temple, she will probably do it after you die anyway. I don't know if I want to be a single mother of four kids. Only the racist comments about why it was enacted have been disavowed. She cannot get into the top echelons of heaven without being sealed to a worthy priesthood holder in the temple for time and all eternity. I wanted to be able to fully share my faith with my spouse, but this expectation was now up in the air. We have all felt it and our house seems absolutely different. While dating is a good time to get to know someone, if you are young it is better to go on group dates.
If your heart longs for children, a family and love- why should you stop yourself holding out for some mystical Mormon man to swoop you off your feet. It is not the norm. We were "forced" to discuss things such as our deepest goals, desires, priorities, and for us, possibly most importantly, how we show love and also perceive that we are being loved. When we are together it is amazing he obviously has work that he takes care of when I am there but for the most part he tries his best to leave work at the office. I do nearly all of the parenting fortunately we only have one child -- we both agree that this lifestyle is too demanding for more and find that my husband's crazy hours and the energy drain of the job make me yearn to connect with other wives that relate.

And now, a final word: Send your query to askmormongirl gmail. I was not in any way dissing her personally, nor dissing her at all, really Many people here have told the guy to run; I just went into more detail. I have been reading this blog for a while now but this is the first time I have felt I needed to add my two cents in.
The long antisocial hours often leave me feeling lonely, and when he is home he is so tired. If this happens, it might click something in her mind that says that what she experienced was pleasurable and she would like to have it again. So there's THAT to look forward to. So I am always alone,our communication is not fully connected, he has no time to talk everything with me, causing a lot of misunderstanding. He is a great man and I know he will always put his family first but this is such a hard decision.
