If she says that the mission was the greatest experience and best two years of her life, any chance you have at a normal long-term healthy relationship is dim unless you convert. If I were you, I would just nope out of it and move on. I am engaged to marry a surgeon next fall. On top of this we are going to have our first child on April 12th and I feel very alone. Girls aren't socially required to be missionaries, unlike men. Masculine attributes attract healthy, beautiful women, no matter where they come from. It really can be that simple. But now, in addition to being a primary spouse, I'm also the primary parent. If you are in a movie theater, you can't talk, so you can't get to know the girl you are dating. Also, I'm having a really hard time understanding from these responses how anyone in the medical field ever dates or gets married.
Or maybe he's like me and would rather just collapse into bed with you when he gets home. When we were dating he made it very clear to me that he had no desire to come back to church. 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.
It doesn't get better. BYU was once the perfect place to find a great young woman and get married. Unfortunately, this has led to a culture of Mormon girls who are absolutely obsessed with Disney and even as adults dream of being Disney princesses. But I do want to be with him. I married for companionship but now all I do is wait for him to stop working, to come home, to call me back, to have time, which is hardly ever. But my relationship with him is worth this small sacrifice. They are taught to refrain from smoking, drinking, or experimenting with drugs. Oh, and remember LDS girls are usually good at leading guys on with potential sex to get guys to agree to what they want join the church. Then, do any of the above morsels of advice matter.
What if love is looking someone in the eye and saying, "You're making the biggest mistake of your life. I remember being at some random party in university, holding a beer and looking at the throngs of people around me who were drunk and stumbling. The ideal, in my opinion, is that she discovers what we all know about the lies the church tells her. I don't mean to be rude, but she's not gonna give up her "nonsense". Even selfish at times. Ask her rhetorically if she would dump her religion for her true love. I am a non Mormon.
