I can honestly say we have grown apart thru the years. Either way, if you have kids and you don't convert, she will divorce you and take your kids away from you and you will be shunned from her community. What my boyfriend and I used to do when we were long distance is write really, crazy long emails to each other almost as long as my blog posts. I wanted to be able to fully share my faith with my spouse, but this expectation was now up in the air.
And you know what. I appreciate all the replies explaining the extent of the aggravation and pain I likely will face. The point is that there are way too many people talking in this thread as if they have some sort of psychic knowledge a stone in a hat, perhaps. You matter, they love you, so please don't ever feel alone-your husbands hearts are right there with you. They have heavy-handed laws, free handouts, unfair advantages for getting jobsвa loud feminist illusion spoon fed to them.
You will have to convert and betray your ideals to keep the relationship alive. I volunteer every week, I put others before myself, etc. They are just really convinced they are right. But our marriage is strong, and our children are good people. I married a person, not a religion. But I believe, doctor or not, a relationship is all about supporting one another and making sacrifices.
I feel as if my husband and I just live passed eachother. I wouldn't just start bringing up the ces letter and the problems in it. But that parent-child relationship was bound to change anyways as you become an adult. Don't do it girls, forget the "status" it doesn't mean jack. I've been seeing a doctor for two years now. Seeing his mom, being the pillar of his family, scares me to think I will not be as strong as her, since I have always been the pampered child since young. I got married last year, left a great job, family, friends and city to be with my husband in a very small under developed town.
