If you are willing to wait, then well and good; otherwise, it is best to move on. Everything we do when we are together seems to be pre-planned and must be executed just so, right down to unexpectedly turning off the lights at And I can relate to the walking on eggshells feeling when they are home. I am trying to help him stay at the church nth work, I think if I really love him like I always tell him I should let him chose and love him the way he is. The church really needs to tailor to more partial LDS families, imho. Learn all you can. Also, don't forget, some people just arent very good at conveying emotions. Sure it's lonely and hard work being a "single parent". That said, Mormons have learned to have fun without alcohol and often have to wait until drinkers are well-oiled and loosened up to join in the dopey-ness.
Word to the wise, wait a day or two. However, now that the student loans are paid off and we have a nice fancy custom home, he has decided to devote his money and time to purchasing and using new bikes road and mtnskis downhill and tele and the list goes on. Thank you for this. And as an anonymous comment put it, date night is sometimes out of the question because he is using his "free" time as catch up on sleep time. Many men have begun leaving the Church in their early twenties as the mission has become more important.
I am a lawyers wife. If she identifies as a Mormon, then she probably takes her faith seriously, and it means a lot to her. All these are reasons to have some serious discussions. It sucks but ultimately what Mormonism does to people is it makes them value adherence to church more than their relationships with people. Seems he's always on call or on a totally different schedule than I. I believe that we are all on different paths, but that it is possible for us to travel on different paths side-by-side. Better than freezing up and avoiding them altogether. Thanks so much for all the time you've put into your replies.
If things get even more serious, try getting her to sign a pre-nup that neither she, nor her family will try to convert you. I'm so sorry to hear this. I let her know I'd been reading on LDS. I have a friend who identifies as bi-gendered and often feels most comfortable in femme. But at the hospital, I'm helping the other guy who was injured when his car wrecked six hours ago, and I can't just bail. I am in my first year of medicine.
