That is speaking from my own relationship. The most important thing is an open dialogue, as you say, and utmost respect for the other person. I wish you all well on your recovery from this particularly vile church. Please submit content that is relevant to our experiences as women, for women, or about women.
The woman's role is to grow up, marry a worthy priesthood holder, and have a lot of kids. As more and more people marry out of their faith, the subject of interfaith marriage will become more and more important. This does not mean that you cannot do those things, but remember that she will not be able to do them with you. Usually, when Mormon girls marry non-Mormon men, these women forsake their religion and revert to ordinary American woman. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. I am about to get into a relationship with a doctor. It's a fair question and you've already been super accommodating. The doctrinal and afterlife issues around a non-temple marriage are an entirely different topic, and one that I am personally much more at peace with than my questions about how one might make an interfaith marriage work in this life. If you were the one who did the asking, it is simply chivalrous and gentlemanly for you to pay for dinner, the movie, or whatever else you do.
A lot of Mormons escape that pitfall and can put people first. How do you doctor wives do it. I suppose it depends on your personality.
I'm no pushover; flexing like this just keeps our lives sane. I seriously questioned the future of our relationship based on that fact alone. If you don't mind some slightly off-topic advice, I can assure you that you will meet plenty of other beautiful, interesting women going forward.
