I love how this applies to ALL marriages. 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 you are dating a Mormon man or woman, be genuinely interested in their religion. I wanted to be able to fully share my faith with my spouse, but this expectation was now up in the air. Be gentle with them and yourself.
Why prophets are awesome. You have given me the courage to continue to protect my marriage and children. Very true, and we're just getting started Hubby just began his intern year. Hopefully, it will give a little insight into Mormonism's insidiousness.
And they manage to get the time for it. I wouldn't just give up, but be wary. I married a NOMO after a lengthy temple marriage and divorce. He states that if he is making such a tremendously better income, it would be selfish of me to put our children in daycare in the future so I can work. If my mother needed her surgeon's attention, I wouldn't want him to be thinking about his wife's lamenting that he's never home, not romantic, etc. And you must be honest in your conversation with God about it. I married a person, not a religion. The odds are definitely not in OPs favor for something like this working for him. We met at home just before he went back to school and even though we only had a week together, it was whirlwind and we already spoke of marriage and kids. If only I knew.
If not, it's better to find out now than to continue with something that isn't satisfying you. I think she felt that it was important for me to understand the types of challenges in an interfaith marriage. If all you are looking for is some non-serious dates to have a good time, you should be fine. This is because if your relationship gets serious and you guys get married, then she may have to forgo many of the customs of her religion. It is so hard, so sad and so lonely. We need to get over ourselves and start loving each other how the Lord intended. That said, Mormons have learned to have fun without alcohol and often have to wait until drinkers are well-oiled and loosened up to join in the dopey-ness. I don't think anyone here intended a dismissal of the girl as a human being by stating such.
