Are you ok with waiting for that. Ignore the busy-bodies who want to condemn your significant other. Narcissism, androgyny, obsession with pop cultureвthe problems with Western women go on and on. And here's an excellent video on the importance of religious freedom. If I could I would marry a businessman or a builder which could have earned us a lot more and wouldn't mean we had to move so much. Sorry that you went through that.
It is not something that should be taken lightly. How the Book of Mormon was translated using a sacred rock. Fifty years later, not one of her 3 children, her dozen grandchildren or her numerous great grandchildren is an active member of the LDS church. He also said that emergency medicine is highly competitive. Mastering the alone time has started to become an art for me I can only imagine how you must feel after doing it for so many more years: I am so glad I found your blog today. Ask her on dates. I did in college, and knew I would play 2nd fiddle to the lifelong dream. I know you love her but is it worth it. I would love to someday find myself sitting in the pew with you, sharing this amazing journey. And their feelings about your marriage are their businessвnot yours.
After being in relationship with him for 3 years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I think in most situations its either you join or she leaves- either you, or the church. I love him more than anything, but lately, the lack of real time together and the stress of his work impacting how I am made to feel like I'm on eggshells when we do get together almost seems like to much to bear. Well, maybe not a total disaster, that is a bit exaggerated. It's typical to not hear from him for weeks. I appreciate my own space too, but it felt shitty to have this great time with him and not get so much as a text until we are making plans for next time. I feel selfish to never be around but this is my dream so much so that I refuse to have children because I dont want my kids to have a workaholic mother who's never there. They don't have control so they easily a Fall prey to other doctors and nurses etc.
And the longer you see her you won't be getting out of anything soon either. Given the high divorce rate in this particular specialty, it might have helped him if there were people in the environment who questioned his behavior or at the very least, registered some sort of disapproval. About ten years ago, I realized I needed to quit qualifying my excellent husband who is a better man than many Mormon men I knowI realized I needed to raise my kids to think of him as completely equal to the men they knew at church. I married outside the church and have no regrets.
