We have moved four times to 3 different states to accommodate his career, and had 3 children along the way. I know the majority of them are great, but there are so many who are like vultures and will latch on to any male doctor like he is theirs. Consider a mix of activities that are inexpensive, and allow you to talk and learn about one another.
I have recently seen too much of these false promises that people use to make others feel good. Finally, it is a very tight-knit community and despite efforts to insulate you from conversion-minded missionaries, you will be exposed to a lot of people that think, like this woman does, that atheists are without a moral compass. I think in most situations its either you join or she leaves- either you, or the church. Would I like to have him by my side. Mormon girls are the best, and you are pretty lucky. When he does, he is often quiet and exhausted.
The sons inevitably went inactive later in life. I can't emphasize this strongly enough. It has to do with their character. Do you have any knowlege of the bible. We are long distance, and it is hard, because when we are together I spend much of time alone waiting for him to come back from the hospital. Most mormon girls look at guys like you as a project and that they have a lifetime to work on the project. My parents, siblings and grandparents are all active members; as am I. But those days may be gone. Do you drink alcohol. Oh, and remember LDS girls are usually good at leading guys on with potential sex to get guys to agree to what they want join the church.
They are always dressed in decent clothing, and the same is expected of their date. I grew up in a very strict Mormon home and dated only Mormon men until I met my now husband. But he feels I need to stick to one career and be content. If your spouse believes in infant baptism, will you allow the children to have that. After dating a doctor for 5 years and finally realizing that what I'm dealing with is an excessive need for being put on a pedestal and adulation by mainly female colleagues of lower professional rank nurses I decided to move on. What you described, just being in each other's presence, sounds perfect. But I don't know that he does the same for me. They don't have control so they easily a Fall prey to other doctors and nurses etc. He might be a doc by day but when he's not at the hospital he's a regular guy just like anyone else.
