We have 2 beautiful children and he has a daughter from his previous mariage he rarely sees. He was also born in Russia during the 80s and did not come to the United States until so we sometimes deal with cultural differences as well as religious. Although it may indeed be a good idea to get out of this one, we all need to keep in mind that the situation is more complex than that.
While I knew that she'd be busy with her studies, she did make good efforts to spend time with me at least once a week and things all seemed fine. I was so incredibly supportive of him and his career. I was an ordinary doctor until I found Medscape. And believe me, I can relate to many of the things you talk about in your blog.
Make sure she knows the plan, so you both can dress appropriately. Thanks for springing that one on me OB. Be a good influence. I've had friends with spouses that got Fulbrights or grants to study in other countries. Mormons think when you die, based on if you were a good person cough cough atheists you go to spirit "paradise" where they will teach you the gospel. I'm really glad I found this post today. I do not threaten lightly.
Do not expect anything long term. Marriage is serious business and we are in it together despite our spouses shortcomings. Too often, I think, priesthood holders think that being overly controlling, they are simply wielding their authority in the home. You just need to figure out where your girlfriend is. If I were you, I would just nope out of it and move on. She cannot get into the top echelons of heaven without being sealed to a worthy priesthood holder in the temple for time and all eternity. I had a lot of things going on in my personal life as well, so maybe a relationship wouldn't have worked regardless.
