What about the folks at church. The most important thing is an open dialogue, as you say, and utmost respect for the other person. To others making this consideration, I would certainly suggest that you converse with your Father in Heaven about this important choice. That was literally over years ago. He is not a member and has told me he is not going to convert. And also I thought it was weird she wore some kind of pants that come to her knees under her other pants, but I never asked about that. The Mormon girl has the light of Christ shining through her, and you were drawn in. I guess I can understand that because his door needs to be locked from the outside and it would be too soon in our relationship to give me a key. So that may be the end of it there. It is not easy for a nonmember spouse to understand a three hour worship block plus callings etc.
I currently just started dating someone who is not only in the military, but a doctor. He might be a doc by day but when he's not at the hospital he's a regular guy just like anyone else. I thought she would grow out of it. Can anyone suggest specific talking points from content on LDS. But I loved this girl more than anything in life. Invest in your love and keep it strong.
Make an honest effort, and see if you reach the walk-away point. Sexuality is the enemy of romance, and romance is amazing. My husband was definitely worth the heartache and suffering that I endured but I am grateful that he was able to see that our family was worth a change in lifestyle. Nothing fixed that issue in me as fast as being almost inseparably bound to a woman that pushed back and kicked screaming against the pricks every time I wanted to make some sort of spiritual effort. If you decide to marry this man, you both will find a way to be happy and have a wonderful marriage, not that perfect that we see in the Sundays at Church. You are expecting him to be like your exes and you want him to be the one to chase you. Make arrangements to send her to your cousins town and let your cousin know she will be visiting. Forget what anyone else says or expects of you.
Do you work through parent teacher conferences and the entire soccer season. I never give him shit for it. Back in the day, before I did the whole language thing, I worked in banking. Mormonism is an all-in religion. She will likely want you to convert to fix the family. If you really care and think this is the lifestyle you wanted then go ahead.
