When those are not around or when the circumstances or the spirit indicate otherwise then prayer is more than enough. Are you still working in interpreting or are you doing something totally different. Eventually I hope each wards get to a point where they know that as a ward family our job is simply to make sure that each person, member or non member knows that when they enter the house of the Lord, they are loved. We are trying to conceive now, and I am contemplating if this was the right path for me. At the beginning of the relationship, which is not long ago, he use to carry out conversations, even while working. But my relationship with him is worth this small sacrifice. I expect to give up my career once he finishes his training and we start a family. If you can't, then it's best to move on.
Marriage offers a chance to develop generosity of spirit and a willingness to be improved by the one we love, no matter what faith tradition he or she may claim. I guess I can understand that because his door needs to be locked from the outside and it would be too soon in our relationship to give me a key. I don't remember much of the breakup because it's been overshadowed by what happened to her afterwards. I got married to a Mormon woman. If you and she are sealed in a Mormon temple, your children will be can be sealed to you. Marriage is simply not an option to me there.
I was born and raised in the LDS faith. It's a heart-wrenching story. Toxic is the right word. Modest dressing is the best policy here. As time has gone by I realized that the opinons of others is not important to me and oddly enough those who did not originally approve have had their hearts and minds changed by the love my husband shows me, our daughter, and the members of my family. These are also only the American statistics. She likely hasn't had many long-term relationships and has no idea what dynamics are involved in one.
But I'm still thinking about him. Masculine attributes attract healthy, beautiful women, no matter where they come from. There are other issues at play here that are my husband's personal history and that he is now trying to come to grips with, and I have hope that we can put our marriage and our family back together-but the job marches on, relentlessly, and there is no time allotted for personal healing. If you are not old enough to consider marriage, you should be careful about having a serious, exclusive relationship.
