I wanted to be able to fully share my faith with my spouse, but this expectation was now up in the air. There are some gems like admission to peep stone in a hat translation to the book of Mormon and angels with swords commanding polygamy, but if someone believes Joseph Smith really did stuff his face into a hat and translate scriptures about ancient jews coming to America, it means they are insane, and you can't reason with an insane person. Love is what we do, not what we feel. And, as I was writing the reply, above, those thoughts went through my head. As a physician buckling under the stress, my assigned counsellor who is also a church minister told me: So, what do I do with that. It's the sort of super dismissive "all women are the same" attitude that I learned in church and left to get away from.
Somehow I never believed any of that; I wanted a career and a small family and never believed religion was a way to identify good character. I agree we shouldn't continue if we can't accept each other as we are. Take a breath, stop and think, is it worth destroying so many lives so you can step in and take the rewards after someone else does the hard work.
I made the decision not to have those things when I married a non-member. You guys have very thick skin. We had our first child about a year into the relationship. Aw, glad I can help. Go for the joy, the experiences, the children to come. I grew up in a very strict Mormon home and dated only Mormon men until I met my now husband. I wouldn't purposefully subject my daughters to that BS. This was hugely disappointing for him and created some very tense times.
I would rather being with a man who makes less and is faithful but that is just me!. Can anyone suggest specific talking points from content on LDS. Don't wait for it to eventually fall apart or hope that she will change. I was skeptical whether this would work with Mormon girlsв sheltered girls who would never step inside a dance club or be wooed by pickup artists. Thank you, Liz, for your very kind words and encouragement. It's the extra socializing, hanging out with residents, stopping by the hospital to visit his best friend. It is the greatest sadness of her life. Mormons are very particular about dressing. I get looking ahead, but it seems like you are very unhappy with the way things are now.
