Loneliness seems to be a part of being a wife of a doc in training, and at times all I can think of is simply getting over a day at a time. Right now, my husband is in his third and final year of an extremely draining and stressful fellowship. She went to BYU and did a 2 year mission, but since she was a girl she got to have a car instead of a bicycle. The important part of finding a partner to marry does not, in my opinion, revolve around whether or not you are of the same religion. Honestly, you are probably the only person who she has ever known to outwardly label themselves an atheist. We moved city over 6 months ago which was in the best interests of her career as well as mine. I know a Doctor who drug his wife and 2 children across the US to begin his residency.
Today was his day off and not one word from him. But our marriage is strong, and our children are good people. As you can see Also, the fact that she served a mission is evidence of her dedication to the religion.
When I was a teen, my first boyfriend was a convert and people would comment on that instead of how nice he was to me. Or am I just being a pushover and need to demand a little more if he wants to keep seeing me. If you have children how will they be raised.
Maybe it was because I was so young when I made the choice, maybe it was because I was the oldest child in an extremely active family with parents that just expected me to be a shining example to the younger kids. These exclusions, dictated by doctrine, hold the potential to create wedges between you, both immediately, and in the long term. I've supported him for 5 years, taken on that Doctor's Partner role, put my ambitions on the back burner, and it hasn't done a lick of good. To answer your question: Even when he does, everything is on his terms. In my experience, life-long member, many Mormons have difficulty thinking outside the box, and putting forth effort to inclue and love. God told me to marry my husband. I am married to an OB physician 10 years. IMO he should've been up-front about that before beginning to date you, but, sounds like you're okay with it now that everything's clear. M so happy that I found this blog.
