Sexuality is the enemy of romance, and romance is amazing. I am 27, LDS, and 5 days away from marrying my own amazing non-Mormon man. If He can answer prayers to help you find missing car keys, He surely can help you understand who it is that you should marry. He knows how I feel about spending time together. Let me tell you, it is NOT any easier. Jesus might have seemed like a cute, imaginary playmate at first, but on some level I would have been expecting to help her get over it.
How many chances will a girl have to find such a wonderful husband candidate. You should be fine as long as you stick to the lines you have laid out. Though I am yet to see if we would make it. Maybe you do, too. I would not fear as much as she does, but that is her reality. For me and the woman I'm in love with, we CAN discuss it without breaking down into spittle and hate. About ten years ago, I realized I needed to quit qualifying my excellent husband who is a better man than many Mormon men I knowI realized I needed to raise my kids to think of him as completely equal to the men they knew at church.

The fact that she is dating an atheist non-Mormon shows pretty serious lack of conformity already. All this said, God is love and fully understands and appreciates your problem. Mormonism, like many extreme religions, often stunts the growth of its members. I'm a nevermo, but I married a then TBM girl, so maybe my perspective will be of help to you. If so, you have a chance. And I'll disagree with the other person who responded to your comment. The Book of Abraham one admits it's not a translation. You should ask Him what you should do, as no one else can see the end from the beginning and no one else has perfect love for you and for your potential husband. You are the woman of valor eshet khayil sung about by Solomon in Proverbs 31 http: Good for you, good for your husband, and definitely good for your childen.
You just need to figure out where your girlfriend is. Unfortunately, this has led to a culture of Mormon girls who are absolutely obsessed with Disney and even as adults dream of being Disney princesses. Let them explore and see the many people who love Heavenly Father and serve him with all their heart. It comes from patience, tolerance, positivity and goodwill not just for our families, but for the people that our spouses are positively impacting, as well.
