A quiet, hard working immigrant but dedicated and faithful. But thinking of the children I could not live with myself to do that. I forgot to add, that if you marry and alow your children to be raised as Mormon, chances are you wont be able to be at their wedding because it will be in the temple. What about the folks at church. I wouldn't purposefully subject my daughters to that BS.

Just ridiculous, what do they know.
Everyone has their own sins and impure thoughts they need to overcome. I often think about what I would tell my daughters if one day they tell me that they are dating a doctor……. It sounds like you HAVE done your best in the past.

Right off the bat, I have to admit that being married and committed to our marriage has been of utmost importance for my husband and I - throughout all of his training. This blog accommodates some frank admissions about that which is less than wonderful about LDS. Yes, it is bad. They are grown now and serving their country but luckily they still need Mom and Dad sometimes!.
There are plenty of marriages between Mormons and non-Mormons. What a bozza topic. During those years, I think we had about 5 dinner dates. It is difficult to learn to have no expectations towards him, even though our mindset towards medicine is the same. It's easy to be blind to deal-breaking faults when you are young and in love. How will this all be once we have children?.
