I think there's a chance you two can find a way to agree on a lifestyle and values. I remember when I had my first son via C-section, our families came to the hospital with Champagne and celebrated, not even one asked about my surgery…. I didn't even believe. I have a small child home full time with me, millions of miles away from any family.
Unfortunately, I can't answer the questions about marrying him etc. I agree with what you and so many of the other replies have said: Listen with an open heart and curiosity. I know a non-Mormon guy who married a Mormon woman and has kept her beautiful and desirable, by encouraging her religious involvement, even though he avoided Mormonism himself. In addition to your religious leaders, there are counselors who specialize in interfaith couples. One thing that has helped my husband and I was a marriage class we joke that it was more like marriage therapy when we had only been married two years. Interfaith marriage is but one variety of the learning experience. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
It was more about my own spirituality and our relationship in our marriage. I came across your blog on a google search and I really enjoyed what you wrote. Then the girl decided still not to date him after all. How Soon to Call after a Date. Be open and talk about your ideals. Even after being in a relationship I have to take all the decision alone. Life is a journey and going through it with a true partner, and a mutual respect for curiosity, is so far greatly rewarding. I feel to say, if you hear this, Amy, in time, it will all come round right. My husband is a surgical oncologist. If we have children, they will be OK to go to your church, but not compelled to do so, and never baptized.
It MAY be true that she will be miserable with him and make him miserable with her. If you don't want to give up, then don't. 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. We might not always like the way some priesthood holders act, but to disparage the priesthood is not being responsible. If you are not old enough to consider marriage, you should be careful about having a serious, exclusive relationship.
