Will you be open to me teaching my children my athiest point of view. I married outside the church and have no regrets. You'll be richly rewarded. I am a non-Mormon who moved to Utah for college. Thanks for letting us know. I have observed in relationships among friends and family inside and outside of the church that holding a temple recommend does not guarantee a strong, happy marriage. No one, except someone who has been Mormon can understand how deep the hooks are sunk into the Mormon psyche.
I guess if u believe an angel with a sword really did force Joseph Smith to marry those girls. Am I wrong to hope for this. Ask her rhetorically if she would dump her religion for her true love. And you seem like a good person. If so, you have a chance.
I have been a doctor's wife for 1 year now and we've been together for 7 years. It was a complete turn around from what I'd previously seen from her but obviously it was something she'd been thinking about. I find there are less disappointments when I know I am completely on my own. He hadn't realized it was the same weekend as my birthday, or even that it was a big birthday - 30. But on saying that I do empathise with you all and a Doctor is very challenging and I know my Dad was always working and it is a demanding job for their spouses to live their lives but hey nothing at the top is ever easy. If she can see that YOU are what is important in the relationship, not what you or she believes, ya'll have a chance. We all wondered why should would go against such a blessing. Earlier I mentioned "Even if the church believes a bunch of crazy nonsense, and she believes it too, I still really like her and would like to see whether we can have some good intellectual conversations about this stuff. I still assume at times that my husband will recognize that I love him if I do his laundry and keep the house clean and care well for our children, etc. It is soooo hard.
Even though we don't have kids I know the feeling of spending my Mrs Doctor life alone. I work 54 hours a week to be able to support myself my family is unable to help more than they already arevolunteer, am taking a class, and mcat studying. There is no way out, either I need to continue to sacrifice myself or get out of this relationship. For an example of what this means - say you get hurt in a car accident.
