Right off the bat, I have to admit that being married and committed to our marriage has been of utmost importance for my husband and I - throughout all of his training. Best of both worlds if you ask me. If your doctor husband says "impossible", ignore him. If I were a Good Doctor's Wife I'd be loving and reassuring and tell him that everything is going to be ok. I am Roman Catholic so I believe almost the exact same things as a regular-non mobot- type mormon This religion Mormonism has a dual identity where some believers are closed mined fools. 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. I have missed the Church in some ways, and certainly the blessings of a temple marriage.
If you think your girlfriend's resistance to being exposed to anything critical of Mormonism sounds cult-like, you are right. Here are my thoughts as someone who grew up with a non-mormon father and as someone who married a non-mormon girl. It is soooo difficult to cope. He can't make a mental switch easily to adjust to our pace of life.
Maybe if I met him at another point in time, things would have worked with us. I'm dating a 2nd year surgical resident, he has three kids from a previous marriage and I have one. Anyway, before you marry you should work out anything hypothetical that might come up in the future.
We'll see how long till last I have my business degree and work in a male Dominated environment so I have choices. If I were to signal him everytime I thought about him, I'd be on the phone with him almost all of my waking hours. She encourages me to develop my skills and talents, and provides an example in several of those areas. I know a guy who had a hobby of corrupting Mormon girls he was abused by his TBM parentsand I'm told you're both right. If all you are looking for is some non-serious dates to have a good time, you should be fine. Have lots of sex. There will be pressure to go to church, marry in the temple, Yada Yada You will want to make sure you're ready to battle this for years, maybe a lifetime. We strive to improve each other.
