How could I help a non-Mormon spouse to feel like a member of my ward family when he is not a member of my church. I don't think I can do it again. I appreciate all the replies explaining the extent of the aggravation and pain I likely will face. I'm dating a 2nd year surgical resident, he has three kids from a previous marriage and I have one. I am dating a wonderful man, amazing. All around me, I am being asked if I am ready to be a doctor's wife, and do I know what is expected of me. From her summary, he just did not understand her dilemma at all.
Because service is important in the Mormon faith, she may be interested in doing something that will help others, like helping someone clean their yard. Masculine attributes attract healthy, beautiful women, no matter where they come from. Thank you for this. At parties, they drink soda and play board games. Please realize I know how the church works, was extremely active and raised good kids. I love how this applies to ALL marriages.
My surgeon husband of 12 years just made himself a "free agent" when he cheated on me and our three kids with a gal 12 years his junior. Because you are a good person, you will recognize the influence of the Holy Ghost and know that the church is true. But, when you're married to a doctor, know that doctors don't sacrifice for their marriages. I'm firmly in the RUN camp. Much good luck, and keep us in the loop.
We are indeed in two different places. Having said that I'm not looking to get married any time soon, so no. One night he mentioned to me that we could just stay in hotels and travel the world while he did surgeries. He sees all families being able to stay together. That was my experience. My wife chose me, but most people aren't so lucky. And then run from this girl if you don't think there's a chance she'll wake up. Like Suha, I have also been married almost 28 years and have done pretty much everything myself for so, so long. These were some tips to keep in mind when dating a Mormon guy or girl. I am so happy about 'starting' our life together in a few months, but I feel like I am totally setting myself up for disappointment.
