He's currently working in the ER and waiting to start his residency. IF she becomes an Atheist free thinker like you then consider keeping her. Am still very hopeful and in love. You are atheist and that's not changing. Please start another thread and continue the conversation. When my husband and I were sealed, I finally understood why my Dad had been stressing this to me my entire life. If you marry him, you are committing to accepting him without the church and all that this entails. A few weeks into the break, he moved to begin his EM residency. I kept thinking things would get better at some point, but they didn't.
Here are my thoughts as someone who grew up with a non-mormon father and as someone who married a non-mormon girl. The important thing is that you are getting to know one another, not that you are always doing fancy things. We have all felt it and our house seems absolutely different. If you really need me, you better believe I'm going to be scrambling to find others to cover my patients so I can leave, but it's going to take some time to get things straight at work first. I believe that there will be a lot more mercy than justice being dished out at the judgment. Then an explanation of the nature of your soul and where it came from and where it's going. If she expresses interest in converting, be prepared to talk about your beliefs, and help her find ways to learn about and follow them. Just an idea, I have no idea what would actually work for her.
I just don't want to jump to conclusions and am trying to prepare myself for a new normal. Look up all the threads of people who are dealing with their true believing spouses -- the guilt, the silence, the bad communication, the hostage-taking. Would she want you to attend church with her. I also expected that my spouse would be temple worthy and that I would get married in the temple, which was not the case. Don't forget too that IF you are successful in turning the lights on and deconverting her, the family would resent you the rest of their lives. No doubt that some will be valiant up on the other side of the veil, but just as sure there will others who will reject salvation because of their high mindedness. Usually, when Mormon girls marry non-Mormon men, these women forsake their religion and revert to ordinary American woman. We have a 2 year old, 4 year old girlsand our third baby is due on August 15, I would love to have tips on how to get through the stressful time of preparing for the MCAT. You should both sit down and have a serious conversation about what you want and what she wants and if you can both deal with the compromise. And yes, some people are unbelievably stupid about it.
I was spiritually prepared to receive the answer that I sought. No where did I say, nor I think indicate, that I thought this wasn't a complex issue, or that this girl is a caricature. I can accept her, and she's told me she can accept me The challenging part for me now is the idea of putting my kids through the brainwashing. I know after residency he would choose a flexible job which would allow for the most family time. How will your spouse feel about that in 20 years.
