Does he have a faith similarly conversion-focused as I could see that being a challenge. Sorry for the VERY late reply. As more and more people marry out of their faith, the subject of interfaith marriage will become more and more important. Maybe you will win. I don't care about the money, I have suggested him to downsize if needed for him to work less. The brethren have taught that there is an ideal pattern for marriage. Anyway, I'm sad and disappointed and I know that it will be my job to keep the marriage together. I had many, many friends who moved this quickly during courtship, too.
And, as I was writing the reply, above, those thoughts went through my head. It is amazing how different values and outlooks, interpersonal relationships can be from family to family. I learned how truly very Mormon I really am, to the deepest part of my soul. Would love to join. Mormon girls are raised to believe their worth is how young they marry and how many kids they have.

Its interesting to read all the doctor wife's comments and experiences. Fist year wasn't easy as he didn't match, I moved across the states and our honeymoon consisted of moving. Even if she does, you'll be the reason in her family's eyes. But I'm glad for all the advice I read on this blog. We have 5 kids and my eldest wants to become a doctor. Yes you are all correct it's lonely and rewarding at the same time But we can continue to make it work. Also, I want to be fully supportive of his dreams and what he wants to become.
