My wife is living proof that they CAN be worth it. Some great ideas include going on a hike or a walk, having a picnic outside or going to museum. Something that will help you stand out is a strong masculine frame. Plus I just quit my medical interpreting job last month. If you have any questions about Mormonism doctrine or things or other angles on what she says feel free to message me.
Would she be okay with never being married in the temple. I envy all you lonely doctor wives. I hate to say it, but I don't see this ending well.
What I meant was I'm wondering if it will get noticeably easier in terms of his schedule in the next few years and right after he finishes, or if it will always feel like this when it comes to being with someone in his profession. Best of luck, and God bless. You should take your cues from your partner, not from documentaries or this sub, on whether your partner's views and actions are manipulative, brainwashy and damaging. It may not seem like a big deal now, but eventually it will probably surface that at best, the church impacts and influences her behavior in almost every area, at worst, it dictates it. He may never want anything to do with Mormons or the church again. I realize I rambled a bit and may not have answered all your questions; feel free to ask anything else you want to know. And if you can make it to the Tree of Life and still be with your partner, guess what.

Even after that, the Church discourages youth from entering serious relationships before they are considering marriage. Many Mormons stick to a small group of friends within the church.
Do you schedule time in to talk and see each other. Their values and the values of popular western culture are wildly disparate, which can be tough for them to navigate early in life. I'm a single, financially independent woman. Marriage offers a chance to develop generosity of spirit and a willingness to be improved by the one we love, no matter what faith tradition he or she may claim. Do you have a few suggestions for talking points I may want to bring up from stuff directly on LDS. I know people should not get married if they can't accept each other as they are. She is considered "an old maid" by Mormon standards, so she may be willing to marry you--hoping you will convert someday --but she will constantly be reminded that your marriage is inferior to the "Eternal Families" of sealed Mormons, and she will fear dying and never seeing her loved ones again. After moving in with him it has become painfully obvious I have a lot of personal improvements to make to meet his minimum expectations as a wife and mother. Why not rather find yourself a rich sugardaddy and leave the docs alone. I'd gladly give it all up to have him and feel wanted.
