I'm sorry you may be hearing a lot of negativity from us. He often tells me how happy he is to return to a clean home, warm meal, and me in the doorway-and I think that makes residency all the more bearable for him. There are some gems like admission to peep stone in a hat translation to the book of Mormon and angels with swords commanding polygamy, but if someone believes Joseph Smith really did stuff his face into a hat and translate scriptures about ancient jews coming to America, it means they are insane, and you can't reason with an insane person. Thought the girl and I had a future, and we did, just not with each other I'll bet there are hundreds of boyfriend converts out there. Communicate and get those answers, OP. Thirty years ago I converted a guy and then dumped him for a returned missionary from an established LDS family.
Finding a person with whom your wavelength matches, and around whom you feel you can just be yourself, talk about anything, and not be worried about being judged, is not as easy as the romantic movies and TV soaps make it out to be. When I was 19, my boyfriend considered himself an atheist. All you have to do is be honest about your username here and you'll never see her again. I learned how truly very Mormon I really am, to the deepest part of my soul. It really can be that simple. Also, we haven't practiced polygamy for over years.
One thing that has helped my husband and I was a marriage class we joke that it was more like marriage therapy when we had only been married two years. I just started dating this guy and he is not only in the army, but a doctor. The day could come where she has to decide between her relationship with you and her church. The fact she's dating you while you aren't a Mormon is at least a sign of hope.
But she probably is more in love with the idea of you, than with you. By that I mean that we ought to consider simply marrying within the faith and in the temple for all the reasons that people have given. As soon as she becomes dissatisfied, she will turn face and educate the OP about just how wrong it would be for her to stay with him. Have you created your Facebook Club yet. Right now she won't even watch a movie. Put that in perspective before you try to equate your struggle to his. Would she be okay with never being married in the temple. How church discipline works. For instance, I am okay with the us not seeing each other very often part.
