The doctrinal and afterlife issues around a non-temple marriage are an entirely different topic, and one that I am personally much more at peace with than my questions about how one might make an interfaith marriage work in this life. It seems she'll expect you to become Mormon. I even had someone tell me I should know better than to marry a nomo. My advice would be to become as familiar as possible with her schedule, and then plan activities that will allow you both to get to know each other better, avoid movies. I believe rules are to be obeyed. No lie he was one of the kindest human beings I've metbut I was afraid of getting deeper into the relationship, so I ended it.
Joanna mentioned that our theology is rich with opportunities for second chances. Make sure she knows the plan, so you both can dress appropriately. Initially I thought he would join the church and life would get back on the only track I knew. I still feel enriched by the contrasts, but in the important things, we have largely come together. However, I believe there are rules set, and we receive certain blessings when we obey said rules. He gave me a very clear answer that this was right. And I don't mean my good friend Satan. I know, there is a world, which I have traveled, that have a life so much more difficult than I.
I hear you, I need my down time to decompress and watch stuff on the Internet, haha. I am so glad I found this blog. Do you want to be married in the temple. If I just assume he won't be home to eat dinner with us, it's a happy surprise when he is. I would love to someday find myself sitting in the pew with you, sharing this amazing journey. So do you just never give anything back to SOs in terms of time or small gestures. Do people that are that busy honestly not have time to even think about their SO. Go miserably explore a foreign country by myself wishing my husband was with me.
I mean lots of his friends from residency have girlfriends or wives and make it work. Even after that, the Church discourages youth from entering serious relationships before they are considering marriage. I'm dating a Mormon girl right now but we both understand that it is most likely isn't going to last long. Usually, when Mormon girls marry non-Mormon men, these women forsake their religion and revert to ordinary American woman. It's simply sometimes hard to accept that while he is your number one priority, you probably never will be. I know my husband appreciates me looking into it because he knows I am doing it to gain an understanding into the culture he was raised in. I suggest to run as it will not get better. Thanks so much for the links. We love each other and have known each other for years. I learned that going out and having fun with friends every single weekend was not going to be part of our lifestyle together due to time restrictions, tiredness, etc.
