You never walks you'll never know. Sorry, you can't reply to this topic. We've been together for a little over a year, after having a pretty severe break at right after the 1 year mark. First, let's start with a short musical introduction on what it's like to be a True Believing Mormon dude. So I'm wondering if things will ever change or if this is just one of the drawbacks of dating a doctor. I think you need to sit down and have a conversation with him about all of this, because that's truly the only way to get to the bottom of it and make a decision for yourself. I was scared to bring it up and make it seem like a demand or ultimatum, so I think I will approach him in the way you described. The church is very important to her. Which is the highest place in heaven aka celestial kingdom.
You will only have a happy relationship if either you both believe in the Mormon Church, or both do not believe. When I was a teen, my first boyfriend was a convert and people would comment on that instead of how nice he was to me. But that was also a possibility if he had married a non-mormon. I hate to be so undiplomatic, but it will always create friction in your life to have this level of religious difference. He has changed a lot throughout this process, but I don't know what he will be like once we are finished.
Long story short, everyone is dead on. Yet another reason I respect doctors so much-their emotional strength. Mormon theology is pretty clear: But Mormon theology is also rich with opportunities for second chances. When those are not around or when the circumstances or the spirit indicate otherwise then prayer is more than enough.

My kids are now 14, 12 and When they were younger it was so hard to be alone and take care of them. Jack is right about the demographics. I don't want a life of paranoia and loneliness but she is the person I want to be with and I want to ask her the most important question of my life this summer. Better than freezing up and avoiding them altogether.
Might be worth working through the missionary lessons and CES letter to see if they can agree at least to disagree. I gave her a piece of my mind as my home is much happier and healthy now then when I was married to my x. The fact that she's planning to go on a mission should help. I am sooooo proud of him but his career has broken me in a way I don't know if I can piece back together. Remember she will only try to convert you because she thinks it is in your best interest.
