I have a small child home full time with me, millions of miles away from any family. Please realize I know how the church works, was extremely active and raised good kids. My husband is midway throug his first year of cardiology fellowship and we have been having a tough time lately.
She is in pretty deep and culture is a powerful force. I got married to a Mormon woman. Modest dressing is the best policy here. They believe that the body is a temple that needs to be worshiped, and that inner beauty is more important. I married a recent convert girl в she may as well have been a nonmember в and less than a year later we got an annulment. Go for the joy, the experiences, the children to come. Find things that will make good memories in years to come. What do they all do from 8am-2.
I am deeply hurt and am a very lonely doctor's wife. We have moved four times to 3 different states to accommodate his career, and had 3 children along the way. If you were the one who did the asking, it is simply chivalrous and gentlemanly for you to pay for dinner, the movie, or whatever else you do. Log into your account. Reading some of the post are making scared of what to expect.
The point is that he should ASK her if this is true for her. If she is full on Mormon, this relationship will go one of two ways: You will convert and change your entire lifestyle and personality to conform with her expectations never to deconvert or you will face severe penalitesor you will break up because you won't convert and change everything about yourself. It has to do with their character. The church really needs to tailor to more partial LDS families, imho. Men and women must be willing to accept what they know to be true. Be open to the wisdom the Spirit will share.
