I clearly stated twice that I severed things with the girl. There will be struggles in marriage and childrearing whether or not he is a member. Tough to say what will impact your girl most - but there's your best LDS. I've been searching around for advice, and this blog page is probably the most informative on the topic of dating a doctor as I've been able to find anywhere. God knows the big picture. While dating is a good time to get to know someone, if you are young it is better to go on group dates. I'm dating a 2nd year surgical resident, he has three kids from a previous marriage and I have one. All those are reasons to give the church some elbow room but they are not reasons for actually staying.
The point is that there are way too many people talking in this thread as if they have some sort of psychic knowledge a stone in a hat, perhaps. How would that motivate you to work out every day to get a girl. But I'm still going to show up, even if it means I lose an hour or two of sleep. He has no vices, is the happiest person I know, is a healthy role model of manhood for my teen daughter and loves me to the depth of his soul. I do not see this going well. Pants-to-Church Sunday left me a bit bruised.
I am a non-Mormon woman married to a Mormon manвwhich seems to be a less common scenario in the LDS world. I love his way of loving me,his compassion towards our relationship,his loyalty ,reason for mine marrying him not for his paycheck but I guess I also need a companion,a life partner,someone who will be beside me when ill be needing him the most. She cried when you proclaimed your love of goodness because, in part, it was a sign that you weren't broken and desperate for Mormonism. That's all we're really saying. I'm raising great kids alone I'm alone at all those same events It's been a huge personal sacrifice to support my husband all these years. That's our best option.
An important is doing this together. It's called selfishness and inability to set priorities. Wow, every word resonates.
