He should tell her that he will never convert, and that if she will not be happy unless he does, the relationship should end. It would be ludicrous to think otherwise. We try to make this place a little better than we found it.
Oh, yeah, and this girl belongs to a verifiable cult. My husband is in his last year of residency. In order for him to survive his residency much less thrive in itthe hospital has to come first, he has to come second, and I come in at third place. I'm surprised this thread is still getting replies.
I've been married over 4 years to a 1st year GI fellow. And the longer you see her you won't be getting out of anything soon either. And as an outsider it will be obvious to you what's going on, but here's an awesome breakdown from a couple that flipped from "we go to church every week - we will write a Mormon blog" to resigning over the new policy banning children of gays all over the NY Times this month and something that is upsetting many staunch church members a few days ago. Now just ask yourself what are the odds of her thinking her way out that crazy nonsense. Within a cultural group marriage is hard. I can honestly relate to all the stories i read from your blog. My seminary teacher went off on me about dating a non Mormon when I was talking about going to his prom.
Marriage to the wrong person is extremely difficult. And after dating a few months we both knew we wanted to get married. He is my soul mate and we love each other very much. She may have served a mission as an ultimatum to herself. Sadly, the general consensus of "convert or nope out" sounds like what will end up happening. Helpful way to learn the facts in a fast and funny format. I am a fierce supporter of him and of his profession but at high cost to my own individuality. Of course he invited me to come with him, but he is in the wedding, so I'll be sitting there watching him in the wedding on my 30th birthday weekend. Recently though she has been quite distant, although this may be due to a combination of reasons - such as family sickness and now being on nights. If she can see that YOU are what is important in the relationship, not what you or she believes, ya'll have a chance.
