All of my siblings who married in the church 1 discussed getting married on the first date 2 were engaged within two months, and 3 were married within six months. Helpful way to learn the facts in a fast and funny format. To others making this consideration, I would certainly suggest that you converse with your Father in Heaven about this important choice. Now a basic overview of the gospel. There is NO guarantee that marrying a returned missionary RM in the temple equates with love and happiness. JS married a girl her age when he was 37, after having told her that he had been threatened by an angel with a flaming sword and promising her entire family salvation if she consentedI decided to read the ces letter. Seems he's always on call or on a totally different schedule than I.
Be specific every time you ask. Your spouse can be involved with anything that does not require a scheduled time. Good to see that I'm not alone. We seem to be one two different planets communication in two different languages. I was off travelling the world when I met and fell madly in love with a deployed Marine. It is so hard, so sad and so lonely. In the end, if the guy is the keeper you say he is then go with your gut. Would you rather give up the prospect of being married in the temple, the assurance of children being raised in the church, and parts of Mormon culture for your boyfriend, or a great man for your beliefs. Women do not get to hold the priesthood and function in an equal role with men. The woman's role is to grow up, marry a worthy priesthood holder, and have a lot of kids.
I do not see this going well. I will keep you posted and thanks again for your thoughtful response I really appreciate it. It is not easy for a nonmember spouse to understand a three hour worship block plus callings etc. The big one is that under Mormon theology both of you must be believing, fully active members to live together in the afterlife. Over the span of the last year though, things have slowly changed. Having read the majority of the posts, my only real comment is that "sacrifice must be appreciated by both parties". I don't know if it's worse for us: For me, it's been an inner battle with myself, should I follow my husband or should he follow me as I am one year ahead. Does it mostly depend on his specialty or just how he prioritizes things.
She probably doesn't even realize how crazy that is. If all the Mormons truly were the pricks we often claim them to be, then Mormonism would be the perfect punishment for them. It is fundamental that we focus foremost on developing ourselves as suitably strong men. It would be foolish to acquiesce a Mormon girl to drink coffee.
