Can I add to this extremely old thread. I'm not married to a doctor, but have been with one through her training and early years 5 years - she's currently in her first year of speciality training as a paediatrician this is in the UK by the way. It gives people a sense of purpose, while pressuring them to be 'good' by their book. We have almost daily prayers, scripture reading, and lengthy discussions about our beliefs. I know that sounds cold but if you train under stress for that many years and become a member of a masochistic not the sexual context fraternity like that of surgical residents, then you more easily shut out anything that might break down those walls.
Thank you, Liz, for your very kind words and encouragement. I ran across your post out of desperation. Observe the suttle loony behavior of the family during thanksgiving. Even though it sounds like she is very Mormon, I feel that this will help her. We seem to be one two different planets communication in two different languages. Things are very very difficult at the moment. In the end, God is a just God. As for deciding to marry someone who is not mormon, here is how I made the decision. I am Roman Catholic so I believe almost the exact same things as a regular-non mobot- type mormon This religion Mormonism has a dual identity where some believers are closed mined fools.
Where we have just started dating less then a year now. I trust him and I highly doubt he's getting "it" from someone else. I'd like to reiterate, though, that sheer physical exhaustion isn't as much of a problem for me as it might be for a med student or a doctor, so he might be deserving of the benefit of doubt if he doesn't keep in touch regularly.
Ask her rhetorically if she would dump her religion for her true love. I am happy and established successful comp. In the end, if the guy is the keeper you say he is then go with your gut. Should I get rebaptized. All these are reasons to have some serious discussions. I can honestly say it has been the worst decision of my life. You are a good person and she can see that. I don't know what to really do to find time to be with him. You're walking into a den of crazy, tbm bishop's daughter, I hate to say it but you should really be contemplative about what you're stepping into. I love my job very much and it has give me many joys, but stimultaneus many hours apart from my children, my husband and my mother when there is a need.
