Plx express what yu think as you ladies are more experienced in this stuff. For every lesson and sermon preached about loving everyone, there are one or two lessons on avoiding outsiders because they will destroy your eternity. I feel selfish to never be around but this is my dream so much so that I refuse to have children because I dont want my kids to have a workaholic mother who's never there. If you and she are not sealed, your children won't be sealed to either of you. Even if you are looking towards marriage, it can be better to hold off on more serious activities until a couple of dates to make sure you both feel the relationship is moving in the right direction. I believe that there will be a lot more mercy than justice being dished out at the judgment. I've done the pre-med, med school, residency, etc. When those are not around or when the circumstances or the spirit indicate otherwise then prayer is more than enough. And then run from this girl if you don't think there's a chance she'll wake up. Your man is becoming a doctor, and while he's still a resident carving his way into the field, his off days will be few and far between.
If they are, run to the altar, in or out of the temple. Maybe it won't be a big deal. No one, except someone who has been Mormon can understand how deep the hooks are sunk into the Mormon psyche. I'd at least insist that at 12 the kids can choose to disaffiliate. I'm not quite bitter but a tad fed up as have given up family, career, friends and started afresh x 2 again to be left alone at the other side of the planet with two young kids, moving house and setting up home with just 4 suitcases. You just can't imagine the heap o' hurt you're potentially setting yourself up for.
Is it wrong not to. Develop Your Own Curriculum. Mormonism has a lay clergy, so everyone serves in the Church. 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. Please realize I know how the church works, was extremely active and raised good kids. I am particularly tied to an area because of family and friends and he was set on selecting a list that was best suited for his career, not me.
After his mission he lost faith on everything for some reasons. Most couples who are married where one is a Mormon and the other isn't, usually stems from a situation where they both were married in the temple, then one of them lost their faith sometime after that. As a general authority I knew, now deceased, told me in the mid-eightiesвIf you find a good man who is not LDS, marry him. Be with a nice guy and a doctor who will not put himself or his love for money first or his ego first. I still feel enriched by the contrasts, but in the important things, we have largely come together. Modest dressing is the best policy here.
