It will only get worse. I was definitely taking the "Tough love" approach because I've read countless times on this and other boards, how Mormons claimed that they were cool with their SO not being Mormon, and that they weren't, themselves, orthodox. A shitty sex life, potentially. This is a very interesting blog and I'm happy to have found it. Religion is super important to LDS people but there's also alot of exmormons. About ten years ago, I realized I needed to quit qualifying my excellent husband who is a better man than many Mormon men I knowI realized I needed to raise my kids to think of him as completely equal to the men they knew at church. In her obviously orthodox Mormon paradigm dad's a bishop, she went to BYU and on a missionunderstand that she believes her husband must be an orthodox Mormon and get married to her in the temple.

I feel a sense of freedom would come with it, but I am also afraid of what this could mean for us in the long run. Girls then struggle to reconcile degenerate popular culture with Mormon expectations.
Whenever you're down or lonely, read the yellow bits. Toxic is the right word. But the issue of marrying a non-member raises two fundamental problems: That idea seems so contrary to the nature of God. Actually, Mormon families are shrinking, just like those outside the Church, but they will always be larger than families outside Mormondom. Doctor's often set their priorities as: When I give my husband the "busy as hell" attitude he gets worried about our relationship. What this guy needs is support and understanding Maybe you didn't intend it this way, but it sounds like you're assuming I'm not already giving him the benefit of the doubt, space, support, and understanding.
