Thanks for the help. As someone starting residency next year and whose father and brother went through it, and whose girlfriend is about to start it I have to say that you can't be mad at him for not sacrificing something to spend time with you - there is literally nothing else to sacrifice; residency is called residency because the doctors used to live in the hospitals, and it was akin to monks in monastery. Thanks for adding your experiences. For now, again, don't expect a decade long relationship. Be fruitful and multiply. Note, her mind and TSCC were married first. All in good time, my dear. He also said that emergency medicine is highly competitive. What do they all do from 8am-2.
I love him more than life, He says the hours will get better after residency I really hope so. I am not sorry I married outside the LDS faith. So far I have found it is a day to day thing. If you marry him, you are committing to accepting him without the church and all that this entails. I'm surprised this thread is still getting replies.
Your man is becoming a doctor, and while he's still a resident carving his way into the field, his off days will be few and far between. I adore the show New Normal and one of my favorite episodes is when Bryan decides to go back to church and the Father is so cool with him. No walking your daughter down the aisle, no giving your daughter away at the alter, nothing but you standing outside the temple waiting till it's over. In the long run, being married to a nonmember has made me a better person.
So, guess whatв We stopped. Another simple and doable option is to go online; there are many LDS dating sites where you can sign up and meet new and interesting people. I'm so comforted by this thread.
