So I understand how it's easy to believe nonsense when you're brainwashed from birth, and how it can be comforting to believe your life is somehow very important in the grand scale of the universe, and how you don't have to be afraid of death because you'll go on to a better place where you'll live happily ever after for eternity. The woman I have feelings for is conflicted on her religion in regards to me. But from what you said, this girl doesn't sound like she is going to be content to have a marriage for time only. That's all we're really saying. By exactly how much ESPN gets watched in the course of a man-day. This is something that's very important to her, and it's difficult to be married to someone who doesn't share the same values. If she can't put you before her religion then you need to walk away. You should certainly still date even if you are not looking for a marriage partner. It really helped to make me feel better.
Toxic is the right word. Why would you behave any different now. I appreciate your honest, and I really like the way you phrased things, particularly this sentence: Thank you for your comments.

I wanted so badly to marry a guy who had recently left the church. We have family prayer every day and read the scriptures occasionally. I am also certain that there are callings and opportunities that I would have had, were I married to a faithful LDS woman, that I have missed. Basically this is different than dating a religious mainstream Christian. Religion is super important to LDS people but there's also alot of exmormons.
I was thinking about this last night after listening to Radio West. Earlier I mentioned "Even if the church believes a bunch of crazy nonsense, and she believes it too, I still really like her and would like to see whether we can have some good intellectual conversations about this stuff. I suggest to run as it will not get better. I bring him food I make sure he's happy. Marriage is serious business and we are in it together despite our spouses shortcomings. Through this, if you run into unforeseen issues like sold out movies or you cannot get a seat at a restaurant, you will always have a backup plan. You love a medical guy. Mormon theology is peculiar, yes, but the media frequently takes things out of context and misrepresents the religion. I understand your internal conflict completely and my heart goes out to you.
