All this actually needs is some stamps, pre-printed envelopes, and a few seconds to dash off a note, kiss the paper, and drop it in a mailbox. It will definitely take patience to work through any of this with her but it sounds like she's a pretty awesome person. The scenario where she refused to watch a possibly 'anti' documentary and wanted to watch church-sanctioned material sounds like a red flag. Then I discovered that Mormons were a welcome exception to the degeneracy that pervades American women. Because of the nature of this job, it was not uncommon for him to be at the hospital overnight or to be called back in for an emergency surgery. Unless you have some super amazing other dating prospect there isn't a huge reason to cut this relationship off now. I do try to send little texts or call when I have time but not as much as he'd like. He has no vices, is the happiest person I know, is a healthy role model of manhood for my teen daughter and loves me to the depth of his soul. I get to experience the joys of his culture, which I never would have known otherwise. And to be fair, he always does contact me to see each other eventually So while some of his behavior makes me question stuff, other times I feel like this is just a phase due to his residency and maybe this is worth hanging on for down the road.
Basically this is different than dating a religious mainstream Christian. Do you see yourself marrying this person if marriage is something you are interested in for the future. But I don't know that he does the same for me. Go on dates on days other than Sunday. I've been dating my girl for 5 years and we have just broke up because she told me she likes someone else but she say she still loves me I have been married for 8 months, my husband is starting his training in orthopaedics Never imagined my life will be like this The 3 years we were together prior marriage when he was an intern were not like this at all I read all the comments and I can see there no much hope for things to improve Constant absences, constants arguments, I have to make myself available when he is available, I am an architect, I have a demanding job myself, but still beings doctor seems to be a lot more important than my career. I get it; I just don't buy into it. It's satire, but this is all stuff you may hear at Thanksgiving dinner.
And you know what. Oh this is a great set of questions. He also brought up issues with the church when we discussed religion so slowly he brought to light some disturbing facts and even though I would have denied it, it got to me.
It sounds like she's already considered marrying you and raising children in the church even with you being out of the church. Can he see the good in it, or does he focus on the more controversial aspects. You should take your cues from your partner, not from documentaries or this sub, on whether your partner's views and actions are manipulative, brainwashy and damaging. How will your spouse feel about that in 20 years. Would she be okay with never being married in the temple.
