Now those are not the problems in my head anymore, whats in my head is how arewe goin to deal with this, ive told her sometimes u wont have anytime for me nor for your kids if we decide to have kids you wont be at the holidays nothing like that and she is always tryin to see everything positive and tells me dont worry ill schedule myself, and im like baby you will not be able to schedule urself your life would be in a hospital. Mormon girls are thirsting for strong, confident, masculine men. I think marriage means sacrifice on both sides. I think love and caring can be more important.
Now if your faith is not so strong to begin with, this perhaps is no big deal. A quiet, hard working immigrant but dedicated and faithful. I grew up in a very strict Mormon home and dated only Mormon men until I met my now husband. I know a lot of Mormons who were also not raised on fear and guilt and strict gender rolesвbut I was, as were many of my peers. You will get to mingle with a lot of new people, and who knows, maybe you will also find the guy or girl of your dreams there. Ok, so what concerns do you have about the biggest difference of allвwhen your child brings home a potential mate of a completely different gender.

The scenario where she refused to watch a possibly 'anti' documentary and wanted to watch church-sanctioned material sounds like a red flag.
Reading has become difficult, because I have trouble focusing. I met my ex when he was a 2nd year resident and married him when he completed his oncology fellowship. But I've met those 3 dates to engagement couples. I would think that a comprise between you getting missionary discussions and her reading the CES letter would be even. My religious faith saved my sanity but I still worry. Propagandists in the media throw around the word patriarchy as if it is synonymous with anything male. He is a great man and I know he will always put his family first but this is such a hard decision. They believe that the body is a temple that needs to be worshiped, and that inner beauty is more important. Maybe more convinced than you are.
