And as an outsider it will be obvious to you what's going on, but here's an awesome breakdown from a couple that flipped from "we go to church every week - we will write a Mormon blog" to resigning over the new policy banning children of gays all over the NY Times this month and something that is upsetting many staunch church members a few days ago. Now just ask yourself what are the odds of her thinking her way out that crazy nonsense. I also think that if marriage outside the covenant is a sin, it is not so grave as to be unforgivable. But he feels I need to stick to one career and be content. This is the type of doctrine that Joseph rejected and so have the leaders of the church. It's a foolish dream I suppose. Its was written in shorthand so its hard to read.
Is he aware that if your children are faithful members of the church they might end of marrying in the temple and he would not be allowed to attend the ceremony.

With me it's less about taking my time and more about the mental drain. I married a non-member over 20 years ago.

As a physician buckling under the stress, my assigned counsellor who is also a church minister told me: So, what do I do with that. I'm not marrying to be a single, working mom with money. It is highly likely that she will pressure you to convert, and if you resist, she may resent you for being the barrier to her being sealed to her children. 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. They nicely include all the pictures we grew up with on how the book was translated and admit that isn't how it happened. Good luck with her, and good life to you.
