Fortunately most of my immediate family has done better. And after dating a few months we both knew we wanted to get married. As a parent, we hope our children will make life choices that will give them the greatest chance of happiness. I make significantly more money than he does as a resident, but I know that my job is secondary. If you decide to marry this man, you both will find a way to be happy and have a wonderful marriage, not that perfect that we see in the Sundays at Church.

Seems he's always on call or on a totally different schedule than I.
At the end of the second date I knew I needed him in my life. Life is too short. If you do end up having sexual relations, she will feel guilty, and it will affect your relationship, you can count on that. As a non member you can not take her to the celestial kingdom to live with God and get your own worlds to populate with her. Ending sooner rather than later is much easier and less painful for everybody.
