What goes on in those sacred temples. The point made was that a parallel can be drawn between interfaith and interracial marriages. Anyone who's a decent human being should be able to know right from wrong and act accordingly. But I do still largely consider us an interfaith couple.
Will you be open to me teaching my children my athiest point of view. Thank you for pointing this out. No one understands our lifestyle or how difficult it can be, not even my best friend and or family members no matter how hard they try to. Needless to say, his top choices were not near my family and friends. We also live in a foreign country which is another element of difficulty. To Anonymous, Your comment also left me heartbroken. Qlee, what do YOU need. I feel pretty awful about that whole thing. I follow a blogger who is a nurse and her stories are gut-wrenching. Cousin the same age who just got married has known her husband 6 months.
It's gonna hurt, and it's gonna break her heart, but much less so than waiting until you've both committed to each other and start discussing your future together. Being married and raising a family can be very difficult if the two of you disagree about important issues like religion. Then again, I doubt any man who's not in medicine is willing to put up with the sacrifices of being a neurosurgeons husband. I think a lot of what you say here really rings true, especially the part about the Date Night. IMO he should've been up-front about that before beginning to date you, but, sounds like you're okay with it now that everything's clear.
When you work this hard, you need to play hard. Good luck with her, and good life to you. And so, I always have to think about my son when I have to travel or have other work commitments. Girls aren't socially required to be missionaries, unlike men. Dating a resident is hard - it was hard to realize that I can't come first, or even second, in this relationship right now. I'm not a doctors wife - im a doctors GF - but I expect that to change soon. To not do residency and leave medicine behind. You'll be richly rewarded. But I do still largely consider us an interfaith couple. God knows the big picture.
