It's alot to understand if not raised and taught in it specifically. I recommend that talk. A forum for ex-mormons and others who have been affected by mormonism to share news, commentary, and comedy about the Mormon church. Many blessings to you. We have 3 children and have now been married 17 years I have been a single mother for yearsthere life is the hospital.
I was skeptical whether this would work with Mormon girlsв sheltered girls who would never step inside a dance club or be wooed by pickup artists. When we're together, everything is good. Actually, Mormon families are shrinking, just like those outside the Church, but they will always be larger than families outside Mormondom. I never give him shit for it. But what does it really mean to be a patriarch, to lead your tribe. She's likely openly telling her family that it's okay he's not Mormon because she's going to get him baptized. At parties, they drink soda and play board games. No sex before marriage.
I respect what my husband does but I have nothing but my pets and a dusty Ivy Leaguedegree. That is a reality you can't change. Mormon's view marriages outside the temple to be counterfeit and you can't get into the temple without converting to the religion. Yeah, I think we need to have that talk I've been putting off. I'd suggest the essays.
Best wishes in whatever you decide. Ask her right out if she is at all interested in leaving TSCC. She cannot get into the top echelons of heaven without being sealed to a worthy priesthood holder in the temple for time and all eternity. Let them see the good in you, and believe that their son or daughter has found a good match. There may be underlying personality similarities, but if the answer to "what shall I do next" is always trumped by a Morman frame of reference for one partner, but not the other, conflict is inevitable. I have never been your typical domestically skilled stay at home mom. I constantly have to reprioritize my kid, work, other activities. I feel you on the loneliness.
