My husband's extramarital relationships were well-known in the hospital where he practiced. Mormonism is a religion that's as manipulative as it is comforting. He told me that there is nothing in the world that is more gratifying.
Dozens of missionaries have told me that the gender ratios in other countries are far, far worse. Her beliefs are innocous but ultimately a death sentence for this relationship. If you don't want your "golden ticket" of the good life, then give me your golden ticket. Whenever you bring something up, they'll say if it's not on lds. Iam 24, my bf going to move to Troy NY for his master he ask me to move with him, I want to but Iam afraid we will never get married. I'd like to reiterate, though, that sheer physical exhaustion isn't as much of a problem for me as it might be for a med student or a doctor, so he might be deserving of the benefit of doubt if he doesn't keep in touch regularly. Due to their religious teachings, Mormons do not smoke, drink alcohol or caffeinated "hot drinks" coffee or tea or do drugs. So I've been dating my boyfriend for more than a year. Over the years, it would have felt increasingly burdensome to accommodate practices that seemed to me like superstition.
I completely relate to all you've written; many of us have come to see Mormonism for what it is, and the severe damage it does to human brains. And, as I was writing the reply, above, those thoughts went through my head. In particular, I relate to the fact that I'm feeling more like a booty call these days and it's making me start to resent him. RUN like the wind. Let me say this so you can get an idea of just how crazy and how much your girl friend is into the Mormon religion: These are known as "garments". A lot of people will tell you to run but if she is in her late 20s most Mormon guys her age are married. She was fine marrying in an LDS church instead of the temple, didn't want to convert me, and most importantly didn't try to change my beliefs or opinions. The woman provides advice and counsel but doesn't preside. On the other hand, if you believe God is bigger than we can imagine, and is not constrained by religious dogma, you have as good a chance as any at a happy, thriving relationship. Now just ask yourself what are the odds of her thinking her way out that crazy nonsense.
Mormonism is an all-in religion. All the other stuffв is crap. I used to be religious when I was a kid. In fact, you likely will meet a few. They even refrain from tea and coffee. To them, everyone is either TBM, hasn't learned the truth yet, or has some kind of personal failing laziness, desire to sin, allowed themself to be deceived by satan, etc.
