Should I just end it if the loneliness bothers me already. We are indeed in two different places. And I'll disagree with the other person who responded to your comment. You got some good advice from the other posters on how to maintain contact. I am a 47 yr old Mom of a 4 yr old child with special needs who is completely alone to care for my child a good part of the time. I forgot to add, that if you marry and alow your children to be raised as Mormon, chances are you wont be able to be at their wedding because it will be in the temple. We are now in Residency, have moved each year and started a new adventure each year since marriage. I hope this will change in the future - it would be difficult living a lifestyle like this in the long run. But you will benefit if you can help him maintain his strength.
During "Netflix and chill" the other night, I noticed there was a documentary about mormons. First and most importantly, I see major trust issues in your future if you both think the other is brainwashed. Becoming a doctor is hard.
Having said this, there are several aspects of this particular religion that you need to be aware of as these will greatly affect how she will approach you and the relationship as a whole. I do wonder if you ask this blog just to get supporting advice. I would advise you to try to be as understanding as you can of her point of view, because having you world view shattered is very difficult and can take a long time to recover from. We'll discuss further after the holiday and see where we end up. Real love just happens. Want to add to the discussion. What this guy needs is support and understanding Maybe you didn't intend it this way, but it sounds like you're assuming I'm not already giving him the benefit of the doubt, space, support, and understanding. You have been blessed with the equipment to make such decisions. While the Church allows dating at 16, it discourages serious relationships until you both are older and considering marriage. I was going to be having leftovers of everything; time, energy, etc.
After our first kiss she lets me know she won't have sex with me because she's mormon and we'd need to be married first. If this is someone you are to marry, then the rest will take care of itself. Or get them met elsewhere. I was to late in that. Before I met my husband I had dated quite a few members and some relationships were quite serious but I never felt right about it. Life is suddenly wonderful, and you catch yourself smiling, humming, and happy all the time. Just as secular marriages have problems, so do temple marriages. Like you, I didn't marry for the paycheck wouldn't have done me any good.
