By the end of the first date with my husband I knew I wanted him to be a part of my life. Do you see yourself being with him for many years. I hope that things will improve and I can adjust to all this. We can also save our errant children by our valiancy too. She never mentioned TSCC. Her brain has been wired from birth by said cult. I'm not complaining about the sex, but sometimes it prevents me from getting to know him better when we don't share any other bonding activities or get a chance to really talk. Mormon chicks have way damaged views on human intimacy. It requires a special kind of patience, and I think that the phrase "absence makes the heart grow fonder" has to be something you can relate to. In retrospect, I believe I was being led to my current spouse.
I am not going to blame him for not putting effort into it, because he probably put as much effort into it as he could. I was thinking about this last night after listening to Radio West. As far as as race and the priesthood, Mormons still believe the priesthood ban was divinely inspired. Mormons have a well-known code of health, called the Word of Wisdom. Nor was there a lack of compassion or respect. How do you feel about that. I agree she should be able to watch a movie or do her own research. Before I met my husband I had dated quite a few members and some relationships were quite serious but I never felt right about it. That question really put things into perspective for me, so thank you. Don't let her try to bring in the missionaries to explain; remind her that she is an RM and knows all they do and probably much more.
First and most importantly, I see major trust issues in your future if you both think the other is brainwashed. At the very least, I might have tried to persuade my husband to pursue a different career, if only a less-demanding area of medicine. Since her father is a bishop, I'm sure he'll want to have his daughter marry a temple worthy person. I have observed in relationships among friends and family inside and outside of the church that holding a temple recommend does not guarantee a strong, happy marriage. He believes in God, but also believes that God is everywhere, and therefore does not need to be worshipped in a specific place of worship with specific prayers. Now that I am married, it has become more apparent that his previous comments about not minding if his wife has a career, were not entirely accurate. Also, what do you and your fiancee do to deal with the busyness. It will help to come in armed with everything I'm learning from the different perspectives on here though. It sounds like you have found a good one. I also have an MPH degree, and am currently working and trying to support us while he's in school.
He has no vices, is the happiest person I know, is a healthy role model of manhood for my teen daughter and loves me to the depth of his soul. Although it may indeed be a good idea to get out of this one, we all need to keep in mind that the situation is more complex than that. Why not ask him where he wants the relationship to go.
