Among Mormons, 25 is practically an old maid. This is because if your relationship gets serious and you guys get married, then she may have to forgo many of the customs of her religion. A couple of quick thoughts: December 12, at 9: December 13, at 2: December 13, at 8: December 13, at 4: December 13, at 6: December 14, at 6: December 17, at 7: December 19, at December 19, at 1: December 19, at 4: December 22, at 9: December 27, at 7: Also, be prepared for Mormon jokes. I know some people don't like the sound of "working for a relationship", but it can be so rewarding. I would need to ask my husband again. I work full time as well and have supported him throughout med school. If your heart longs for children, a family and love- why should you stop yourself holding out for some mystical Mormon man to swoop you off your feet. I don't want to sound like I hate what he does but it's really difficult to be flex parents every time.
I haven't read every post like you probably havebut I've read a lot of them. She's most likely secretly playing out fantasies of converting you, marrying you in a Mormon temple, and having a very Mormon life, OP. If I catch you in the back seat trying to pick her locks, I'm going to send you back to mother in a card board box. Go on dates on days other than Sunday. I have rediscovered what I love about the church but choose not to attend or participate. I mean, I get where it comes from but it's so ridiculous. Religion is super important to LDS people but there's also alot of exmormons.
There is much that needs to change and many hearts to educate but if we doubt some of the fundamentals then why not all of them. My two daughters have each chosen a man who is emotionally and physically available, thank goodness. Though our husband's are different we are very similar. All those are reasons to give the church some elbow room but they are not reasons for actually staying. I tiptoed into my current relationship with a medical student dating two years, med school is almost overand one of the first things I brought up when he was pursuing me and he pursued me HARD was that I would not be the kind of person that would date a doctor.
I only know him as the most loving, caring, and sincere man I have ever met. That being said, we have built something beautiful and good, have modeled loving responsibility and accountability to our kids, and I am certain I am with the man God chose for me. Did you ask him to drop you off and he refused, or were you hoping he'd think of it himself. Although with the change in times, people may not follow these rules as stringently as before, it is still better to be careful so as to not offend anyone, and you may possibly land up with the love of your life. That's cool and everything until you realize that they're an archeologist or a missionary pilot and are in uncivilized areas with no modern methods of communication. I even had three kids in with me during a impromptu vaginal examination when I was preggo with my fourth. I have read some of the comment here and would like to share my experience. Posts from people who have your same problem occur on a regular basis here on RFM. Do you have to leave for work at six in the morning and don't get home until you kids are in bed. I knew going into this it would be difficult, so I've braced myself, but I'd be lying if I didn't say there's a lot of disappointment that comes along with the relationship.
