Raising our children as believers is proving to be very tricky. It's a foolish dream I suppose. I only hate one thing in the planet, and that's the Mormon church. I tiptoed into my current relationship with a medical student dating two years, med school is almost overand one of the first things I brought up when he was pursuing me and he pursued me HARD was that I would not be the kind of person that would date a doctor. Till then, I know I should be more patient and understanding than any ordinary wife is. About eight years ago, I dated a Radiology resident and I vaguely remember it being intense, but this rises to a whole new level.
And some will do that. This can make it harder for you two to do things together. He had a nervous breakdown- panic attack by 10am. There is no freedom to think, no freedom to speak your mind, and no freedom to do anything that 'the brethren' say not to. He took out his bad moods on everyone. He fit me- does that make sense.

We met at home just before he went back to school and even though we only had a week together, it was whirlwind and we already spoke of marriage and kids. No doubt that all rightetous persons will accept Christ but not everyone that dies will be righteous. If your relationship is moving forward, or she suggests doing something more expensive, it is not inappropriate for her to help pay as well.
The only thing I can say is good luck to all. But it turns out I need to understand him more than I should be understood Take care of him more than I should be taken cared of. I can second this, as a lifelong utahn this is why I simply have a "no mormons" policy for dating. So I feel like we have to wait yet another year just for the daunting part of it to start. The fact that your guy came right out and said he didn't care what you thought and that we was going to spend his money and time the way he wanted indicates that he still thinks of himself as single. My dad was in the bishopric for most of my childhood, and I was never the person you describe here. I have no family nearby as I am from a different country.
