It's unfair to assume that she feels that way without asking her. I just started dating this guy and he is not only in the army, but a doctor. With so much pervasive degeneracy in the media, Mormon parents think they are safe showing their kids Disney movies. She's already past her prime in the Mormon dating market. Here are my thoughts as someone who grew up with a non-mormon father and as someone who married a non-mormon girl. This is because they gave up the structure of what made them desirable in the first place. There will, in fact, still be churches besides our own. Listen, you are in a bad situation and it just has not come to a head yet. Yes you are all correct I am lonely but happy He's always worth the wait MMy husband is an amazing human being and an international cardiologist.
If she can accept me for who I am and what I believe, knowing that I'll never give her the eternal family she wants, then maybe we'll be ok. He is truly my soulmate and I shudder to think that if I had not chosen to marry outside of the church, I would not have had this life with him. Finally, the decision of whom you marry is really between you and God. Who knows, but I think it was especially hard for the moms of young men. They will teach the boys that masturbation is evil, which will cause most boys to lie about it and feel deep shame and guilt. There are a lot of single people in the world.
I married a person, not a religion. I would advise you to try to be as understanding as you can of her point of view, because having you world view shattered is very difficult and can take a long time to recover from. And no I would not pressure them to convert but as a Latter-day Saint I would pray for them to convert as I do for many people I know and love. LDS theology heavily promotes the idea that marriage and family are an important source of happiness in this life, not just the next. Anyway, before you marry you should work out anything hypothetical that might come up in the future. I know how much it hurts, and it makes you feel unwanted. I've had friends with spouses that got Fulbrights or grants to study in other countries. He has never said a disparaging word about his mother.
And the longer you see her you won't be getting out of anything soon either. I am more compassionate towards people who I would have stigmatized earlier. This broke my heart. Their son grew up to become a temple president. Because what are Mormons about.
