I wish I could let go of our love as easily as he has, but I just can't. He is absolutely, hands-down my favorite human being on the planet. My wife chose me, but most people aren't so lucky. Please start another thread and continue the conversation. Chances are you can't though. Really have to walk in someone's shoes to understand. Where we have just started dating less then a year now. I'd at least insist that at 12 the kids can choose to disaffiliate. And unless they are total cretins your ward members will love him too.
They will teach the girls that sex is bad and wrong, which is something they will have trouble putting behind them when they eventually do get married. Best wishes on your next expedition. She's too heavily invested in Mormonism for that. I decided to sort of play along because she was amazing and I didn't believe some of the things she was telling me she actually believed. If you want him - he is part of a medical school package right now, and likely will be for some time to come. Single women who are educated, regardless of religion, are also going to find similar gender imbalances among their educated peers nowadays. Once he's out of training, though, the medical marriage is much like any other marriage and the success strategies are really all the same.

I did in college, and knew I would play 2nd fiddle to the lifelong dream. Such beliefs make the girls confident about being women. What if she absolutely despises sex. I've read through some stuff there and it all seems pretty tame so far. That was my experience. It has been a couple of months since I have seen him or even really talked to him. Because Utah mormons are waayyy different than mormons everywhere else.
But of course this does not mean that mixed religion children cannot grow up to be LDS stalwarts. Most couples who are married where one is a Mormon and the other isn't, usually stems from a situation where they both were married in the temple, then one of them lost their faith sometime after that. Or when I get up at 5: So far I have not brought up any of this with him because I'm trying to offer all of that support and space you mentioned and I wanted to give him the chance to do it himself. There is no question this is the true church. Maybe he thinks it wouldn't be a bad idea to cheat - these women understand him. The way he wanted to live his life, the family he wanted to have, the wife he dreamt of- matched the type of person I longed for.
