As a parent, we hope our children will make life choices that will give them the greatest chance of happiness. Honestly I'd let things keep going. There are other ways. When I come home, I don't necessarily want to be alone, I just need to do things that will calm or recharge me instead of things that will tire me out more. My question is, my 30th birthday weekend is coming up and when I mentioned it to him he informed me that an old friend from college's wedding was that weekend and that he wanted to go. Pickings are slim at church. If your spouse thinks 8 is too young to get baptized, are you all right with waiting until they are older. I think your response is Bang on.
Before I proposed, I actually broke up with my partner for a month в mostly due to family pressure. As much as I want to share his brilliance and compassion with the world, I know that once he makes that connection with someone's sick parent, it is easily hrs less of our family time, and he won't even be treating them.

This woman is a human being, not a caricature of a TBM. We try to have a 'date' night although at the moment it is about once a month. I don't remember much of the breakup because it's been overshadowed by what happened to her afterwards. I am a staff nurse and my boyfriend is in his last year in medicine school whos now havong rough tough junior internships. I have rediscovered what I love about the church but choose not to attend or participate. Life is not perfect.
It made me sad to think that the thing that was most important my life в my faith в was something that I could never fully share with my husband.
