These insane hours are wearing on me and I fear what has happened to so many I know will start to happen to us. She is going to be taught for the rest of her life in the church the importance of missionary work and eternal families, and Priesthood in the home. I've moved to be with him for med school, then we moved again for residency and just moved again for fellowship. I know that she's even getting her stuff ready to go on her mission.
It seems to me like you are walking into a relationship where there is a significant disconnect from the start. I've never understood that bit of the LDS culture. I had many extremely hurtful things said to me, along with an intervention hosted by my married-in-the-temple-and-divorced grandmother. All that being said, no one can tell you what is right for you except Heavenly Father. If you are a believer and are willing to go, then well and good. I learned how truly very Mormon I really am, to the deepest part of my soul. Females are not expected to serve and MOST of the girls that do, only do so because they do not have a suitable read: If your GF is an attractive girl and still ended up on a mission then she is about as fanatical as they come and if she isn't already she will be slowly trying to convert you. It's a heart-wrenching story.
Some mormon girls are closeted freaks as someone here has already said. I feel like I make a lot of sacrifices to see him and try to make it as convenient as possible for him, which means planning ahead and changing my schedule around sometimes. Ending sooner rather than later is much easier and less painful for everybody. Bottom line pardon the 'pun' is that what spoils being a Doctors wife is accentuated by female patients who try to impress via way of dress and or behaviour Lets face it - being a Doctor is something that many females find attractive My thoughts are with all Doctors wives. I had a lot of things going on in my personal life as well, so maybe a relationship wouldn't have worked regardless. We've always had a very loving and intimate relationship, but the physical absence really has made a negative impact.
I have days when I feel like I don't want to do this anymore, but then I go through old pictures and letters and to remind myself that we had it figured out once, and we can figure it out again. Anyways, good luck, I hope it works out. I would love any advice you can give.
