Also, they are encouraged to date in groups and not pair off alone, so if your date insists on the same, then agree politely. I'm really glad to hear a few of you have stories of happy interfaith relationships, or leaving the church together, so there's always a chance. Listen, you are in a bad situation and it just has not come to a head yet. In the endвthe very endвGod loves my husband even more than I love him. If he's too tired from work to go to a party that we both wanted to go to, then I'm cool with staying in since I just enjoy his company and am happy to finally be seeing him. I'm engaged to a junior intern and we're supposed to get married soon. As ex-mormons, can anyone here offer some insight about this girl, her religion, and what exactly I may be getting myself into if I continue dating her. I also just care about him enough and admire his reasons for becoming a doctor that I'm willing to make sacrifices so that his life is easier. Be a good influence.
This is right for me and for us. Having married over the course of my life not one but two wonderful non-Mormon men one Jewish and one low-church ProtestantI can say that my own spirituality has been profoundly deepened and enriched by the perspective that these two God-fearing and spiritually mature people offered me, and by my participation in the observances of their traditions. They do exist and you deserve that. The Mormon culture has mastered the forked tongue. That being said, there are some facets of the religion that you should be aware of that will influence how she approaches both you and the relationship.
Of course it is impossible Anyways, I am sorry to go on and on. Basically nothing like reality. Girls aren't socially required to be missionaries, unlike men. If you decide to marry this man, you both will find a way to be happy and have a wonderful marriage, not that perfect that we see in the Sundays at Church.
If she can't put you before her religion then you need to walk away. I can say this. Before I met my husband I had dated quite a few members and some relationships were quite serious but I never felt right about it.
