No one appreciates how demanding it is unless they have lived it, many friends over the years said to me "lucky you, you are married to a Doctor. I went to BYU. The relationship never went anywhere but was always happy to help and he was very grateful. Aww God bless all u patient strong wives. Dating is a tricky game. Pickings are slim at church. The Church encourages you to use dating as an opportunity to show your respect not just for others, but for yourself.
By those standards, I was a failure, my husband wasn't "good enough" - and my daughter had ambitious real goals that required a lot of time and effort. If you're just shaken up and in need of a few stitches and work is busy, that means instead of rushing to your side immediately I might wait until my shift ends before showing up with takeout and flowers to look after you. The ones who already had concerns start questioning. In the end, God is a just God. The point is that there are way too many people talking in this thread as if they have some sort of psychic knowledge a stone in a hat, perhaps. So now, after two years, I'm finally starting to realise that just because I've met someone and we love each other dearly, it doesn't mean I get the benefits of having a co-parent around, which is something I desperately want. This sub is a great place to do that. We see each other about once every ten days, or times a week at most when his schedule is lighter. The fact that she's planning to go on a mission should help. Should I stay or let him do his thing.
My mom always said the more you have, the more it owns you, so true. Never ask vague questions and give her definite options instead. I wouldn't purposefully subject my daughters to that BS. If she had to choose one issue to dedicate her life to, it would be gender equality. Mormons follow the law of Chastity; they believe that the intimate act of lovemaking must be saved for after marriage. I was not in any way dissing her personally, nor dissing her at all, really Many people here have told the guy to run; I just went into more detail. I don't remember much of the breakup because it's been overshadowed by what happened to her afterwards. I hope that makes sense. He is still in residency. I agree we shouldn't continue if we can't accept each other as we are.
Find some small proxy act of affection that can be done regularly to say that he cares about you, and that can be kept sacred as a stand-in for everything else that's missed. Learn more about the LDS Church. That being said, no matter what the cause, I wasn't getting what I needed out of it and I had to make the decision to either keep things the status quo or move on. This is starting to upset me though and I'm tired of waiting for change, so how should I approach the conversation. A lot of what you say about Support was what I expected to find in residency. Sometimes I think he is the man who shouldn't have had a family but just a career too late for that now though. If it is even possible, would it strengthen or weaken their ability to develop a personal relationship with their Heavenly Father. I felt like I was 'on call' for when he would be available to see me. You sound like a wonderful person. By that I mean that we ought to consider simply marrying within the faith and in the temple for all the reasons that people have given.
