I think that Doctors have to be selfish to a degree. This is right for me and for us. They can't seem to deal with it, and shouldn't have to. I sacrificed a career and instead raise the children at home which often feels like single parenthood. Even Mormon girls who marry non-Mormons want great dads for their kids, and they are oriented to having kids, sometimes many kids. This is right for me and for us. But I am really in love with him, and see him as a wonderful man. These are things your wife may consider matter-of-fact and you may be surprised by if you don't discuss them now. I am so in need of a support group.
I went to BYU. My husband not only supports me going to church he encourages it because he knows that it is a part of me and makes me happy. Best to all of you, and may God Fate help us all. I know that sounds cold but if you train under stress for that many years and become a member of a masochistic not the sexual context fraternity like that of surgical residents, then you more easily shut out anything that might break down those walls. Now 13 years later, my son is a teenager. Mormon's view marriages outside the temple to be counterfeit and you can't get into the temple without converting to the religion. Now I feel sadness for losing out because of fear, and a cult mindset. Too often, I think, priesthood holders think that being overly controlling, they are simply wielding their authority in the home.
It's been really tough and am only hoping to see a glimpse of the reward soon, whether it is simply watching a movie and actually finish it in one sitting or finally having dinner in the same room. If you shift his way, be prepared for the social costs of inactivityвplus, if you really believe the doctrine, a crisis of faith. The sons inevitably went inactive later in life. Ask questions, try to find out as much as you can. Mixed races, however, are NOT tied into opposing beliefs and mixed races don't try to "convert" each other.
All you care about is the paycheck. It is tempting for Mormon girls to become lazy because they have such a high standard compared to typical girls. This blog accommodates some frank admissions about that which is less than wonderful about LDS. I do feel some of the pressure lifting off me in that I can start doing things for myself. I am fortunate to be married to a surgeon who, although he has "the ego," he maintains Christian values in our home. I am really in love with him.
