She views patriarchy as a quality of God. If you are very much willing to accept and understand all of these, whether you are a Mormon or not, you can expect that it is fun to date a Mormon girl. Vh65, your marriage is a black swan. We play doctor - then she leaves. I wish you all well on your recovery from this particularly vile church. The sons inevitably went inactive later in life. I don't know if I want to be a single mother of four kids. I still feel enriched by the contrasts, but in the important things, we have largely come together. I wish you the best of luck. There is NO guarantee that marrying a returned missionary RM in the temple equates with love and happiness.
I hope he wised up. It sucks but ultimately what Mormonism does to people is it makes them value adherence to church more than their relationships with people. First, my dad was a wonderful husband to my mother the greatest mom on earthand a wonderful father to me. Sure I have met alot of douche bag doctors who have no morals, think they are 'it' and you know that they feel free to cheat whenever. I've been doing it wrong. I know a Doctor who drug his wife and 2 children across the US to begin his residency. My husband gives the very best of himself to the hospital and the staff and patients every day. He isn't in school and doesn't have much idea about what it is like to be in my shoes. Most of them have affairs. Sexually, risque and the such is essentially the same as baptists and fundamental Christians.
Iam 24, my bf going to move to Troy NY for his master he ask me to move with him, I want to but Iam afraid we will never get married. The woman provides advice and counsel but doesn't preside. What I meant was I'm wondering if it will get noticeably easier in terms of his schedule in the next few years and right after he finishes, or if it will always feel like this when it comes to being with someone in his profession. I mean lots of his friends from residency have girlfriends or wives and make it work.
Great post and so very true. How do you doctor wives do it. Do you really love him, honey. This was hugely disappointing for him and created some very tense times. If I knew any better going into this relationship I would have stopped. Being a doctor means you sacrifice for others, and your family and spouse sacrifices while standing in the shadows of your career. Public displays of affection PDA show a lack of self-control. Good communication, love, support and understanding are the things you should consider. I know what they really make, and what they really spend. And it was the most miserable and lousy choice I ever made.
