Typical American girls have the government to make them feel secure. We keep "waiting" for it to get easier, and every year it just doesn't. The LDS Church meets many of the criteria for cult behavior.
A couple of things I run into most is that people assume I am also Mormon. I've been seeing a doctor for two years now. This is especially true when you are around others. And ah yes, I have a very strong dislike of all nurses. In fact, your GF is probably one of the countless Mormon women who get married only to find out they have zero sex drive because of what they learned growing up. Well, maybe not a total disaster, that is a bit exaggerated. If you want him - he is part of a medical school package right now, and likely will be for some time to come. Those were difficult both in terms of terminology and in understanding what was going on medically.
I am a non-Mormon who moved to Utah for college. How could I help a non-Mormon spouse to feel like a member of my ward family when he is not a member of my church. Do you drink alcohol. A lot of shared hobbies, interests, life goals.
I've moved to be with him for med school, then we moved again for residency and just moved again for fellowship. He is living with the health effects from working upwards of hrs a week. I was shocked how much the stress, lack of sleep, etc.
