As for the Mormon cohort he will be exposed to, I have two thoughts: And so far as I could tell, it worked and no one tried to drag her husband into the church. I'm in the exact same pulling-out-my-hair situation that you are. And as many posters stated, it is something that needs to be seriously discussed with your potential partner. Know her limits on substances.
My current atheism bothers him a little but as long as we respect each other it's fine. Perhaps it was just her personality but I find most doctors repulsive. They value femininity, motherhood, and masculinity in men. None felt right, ever. He's usually trying to catch up on sleep working on a presentation, patient notes, etc I know communication is key, but it's helpful to know that others are going through the same experience. This is such a misinformed statement. I'd try to see if she will leave the religion, and if not, you should break it off.
It's been tough to always move and find a new job, friends etc I agree a support system is needed. Dating a resident is hard - it was hard to realize that I can't come first, or even second, in this relationship right now. Yet others are really great human beings. To his defense, when we were great, we were great.
Honestly, you are probably the only person who she has ever known to outwardly label themselves an atheist. And it was the most miserable and lousy choice I ever made. Also, love how you describe how God has our backs and we can actually act on the notion of things hoped for that are not seen instead of the quaint pseudo idea that all things are known in advance, step by step, and lead to mortal and eternal bliss. At that point we quit going and focused on her goals and family bonding. I've already approached him like a million times to ask why he has been distant with me but now I'm realising it's his work load but he doesn't want to admit it's a lot for him.
