Again, reading your blog definitely opened up my eyes to many things I was totally oblivious to. What a miserable state. Before I proposed, I actually broke up with my partner for a month в mostly due to family pressure.
What am I getting myself into. For example,is it reasonable to expect sex 1x a week. The Church encourages people to be a good influence on one another, and she will probably expect you to dress well for her. Dating a resident is hard - it was hard to realize that I can't come first, or even second, in this relationship right now. He loves me and would do anything to make me happy.
You will be expected to condone but not attend events in the temple to which you will not be granted access. I get it; I just don't buy into it. Me and my husband has been married for almost 2 years now, and have been together for almost 12years. I keep the positive thought that it will get better. I prayed about whether to marry this man, and I felt and still feel strongly that it was right for me. If she can accept me for who I am and what I believe, knowing that I'll never give her the eternal family she wants, then maybe we'll be ok. And generally those people seem to have great difficulty in breaking off the relationship, even though they are told that it is a dead-end situation that will cause them big trouble in the future.
Because she will think that all of a sudden she is going to hell for being human, that's mormon sexual repression. My sisters married to the temple served a mission etcв. I would not fear as much as she does, but that is her reality.
