Would I have changed the course of my life. Your crush might put a lampshade on her head and call it innocent fun. Mormon women greatly value sincerity of purpose. We are best friends, and you will always have time for your best friend.
I don't mind long hour days but not having a companion during weekends. In addition to your religious leaders, there are counselors who specialize in interfaith couples. But the loneliness and the hours ER shifts are taken everything I had left in me. It's in the Mormon DNA. Ask her on dates. I think the secret to a successful marriage and a successful family is to respect each other's space and to enjoy all the good times no matter how trivial they are and to foucs on the positive aspects of the marriage an family life.
I still feel enriched by the contrasts, but in the important things, we have largely come together. She might not be keeping the Word of Wisdom, living according to the Law of Chastity, or attending church regularly. In some cases you can just simply live together with differing religions. Now I feel sadness for losing out because of fear, and a cult mindset. When you mix cultural groups you increase the difficulty. It's not impossible, just painful and unlikely. Don't do it girls, forget the "status" it doesn't mean jack.
