YOUR prayers are just as efficacious as a priesthood holders are. You'll question your parenting decisions but he won't be involved in supporting you because he'll have no idea what's going on and little interest. See, I am a SAHM and my husband has just gotten accepted into a 4 year pediatrics residency program this year. I mentioned in another post that I am okay with us not seeing each other all the time.
Make sure the girl you like is already 16 years old. I too suffer the same problem. I say, Follow your heart. Did U have sex with her yet. But when my oldest daughter hit 12, the lessons started to have one major theme: This is what girls are told should be their primary goal. Sorry, but it just isn't worth it. This is legitimately how it is for most dudes in Mormondumb. What if she absolutely despises sex. And, as I was writing the reply, above, those thoughts went through my head.
My husband and I have a much closer relationship than ever before and I just hope that another blue eyed nurse doesn't come along to distract him. And after years of this struggle, will your love for him and desire to avoid the hassle cause you to reduce your activation. Will he possible convert just to make you happy without really buying into it. I hate to say it, but if you are serious, go explore her world. Ultimately, it comes down to this. It's a heart-wrenching story. Dating a doctor is a huge motivator for me. Sorry, but it just isn't worth it. My experience has been that personal similarities and differences are a bigger element than cultural differences.
I wouldn't just give up, but be wary. No hard feelings, is not his fault, I said yes when he proposed based on the life wee had at that time, my fault for not doing some re search and find out how is really when you are a register or in the training programme. Would she be okay with never being married in the temple.
