This is really a conversation you need to have with him. I grew away from mine as my husband then-boyfriend slowly grew closer to his Mormon faith. It seems like mormons in particular are even more crazy than the majority of crazy religious people, and the manipulation and treatment of people who wish to think for themselves and challenge their beliefs is really frightening. Ok, so what concerns do you have about the biggest difference of allвwhen your child brings home a potential mate of a completely different gender. Marry a person based on his character, not his religion. He gave me a very clear answer that this was right. My husband's simply daily things, like grocery shopping, cooking, waking up with me to make coffee in the morning-are far from unnoticed. But it turns out I need to understand him more than I should be understood Take care of him more than I should be taken cared of.
As the patriarchal leader, it will be up to you to figure it out and to dispel her unrealistic fantasies. Because Mormons retain old-fashioned values, Mormon girls are raised in a traditional environment by good fathers. You might need to trade missionary lessons for research on her part, and we can suggest less scary resources. It will be up to you, her man, to support the positive expectations.
She found the perfect Mormon guy, they were married in the temple. But it was frightening Toughen up if you're the doctors girl. The argument progressed to I do not feel comfortable moving with you unless there is some sort of "promise. For instance, you probably want your children to be baptized into the Mormon faith when they are eight в is your fiancee okay with that. Those will make her think. I have been married with a doc for 4 years, we have been moving every year due to his fellowship, residency and so on, i have been losing job opportinities and living with no families,friends around due to his career. We see each other he still makes time for me, but i cant really tolerate him insulting me when hes angry for small reasons. I could get a small jigsaw puzzle and send those pieces once a day. Only the racist comments about why it was enacted have been disavowed.
As a docs wife we have to deal with all sorts, and prayer has often been my lifeline. Mormon children are advised, in their religion, to refrain from dating until they are at least 16 years of age. It will be up to you, her man, to support the positive expectations. She has to decide for herself what she believes, but you can definitely help expose her to new ideas. Of course I have time for my SOs, of course I give of myself to them. Especially if they're devote enough to expect you to marry in heaven, huge implications with that one. If we can say them together, great; if not. But she probably is more in love with the idea of you, than with you. You can and should share with her why you don't and never will believe in the Mormon church, and let her decide for herself, but be prepared to have that blow up in your face.
