Hi ladies, I'm looking for some advice. Even though we live together, we barely see each other - when he is working nights, we go several days without seeing each other at all he is usually still at work when I head out in the morning, and gone by the time I get back in the evenings. That was literally over years ago. How do you maintain a healthy balance with relationships and work when your partner has a more demanding profession than you. Before I proposed, I actually broke up with my partner for a month в mostly due to family pressure. As these are probably the two most important things to you, it will most likely, be a very difficult decisionвfollow your heart and the spirit. You have to have very thick skin to stay in it. I'd rather marry a rich doctor and let him have his affair s on the side just so long as I don't have to work anymore. Some of my closest family and friends don't truly understand my life as hard as they try. I am willing to add his religious observances to our worship as a couple and as a family, but should I also be willing to give up some of my participation in my own faith в for example by attending the temple or Sunday services slightly less often in order to spend more time as an entire family.
That list is comprised of his parents including his dad's affair which led to a son, his aunts and cousins in Europe his sister and her husband who are handicapped and whoever comes his way asking for a handout.

My dear faithful LDS aunt married a good non-member man. I know a guy who had a hobby of corrupting Mormon girls he was abused by his TBM parentsand I'm told you're both right. The schedule is erratic at best. Finding a person with whom your wavelength matches, and around whom you feel you can just be yourself, talk about anything, and not be worried about being judged, is not as easy as the romantic movies and TV soaps make it out to be. I maintain my own life and embrace my SO with open arms when I do see him, which comes to about once a week usually dinner after 8: I get up with him at 4 A. Before that, you are encouraged to date, but not exclusively. Maybe he thinks it wouldn't be a bad idea to cheat - these women understand him. Single parent when I met her.
Then I discovered that Mormons were a welcome exception to the degeneracy that pervades American women. Some other times I feel alone in my marriage. Well, the thing is he knows exactly how I feel and he has offered to give it all up. I won't lie, there are times I have said to myself "what am I doing living like this. She has encouraged me to read LDS. She might be everything you want, but in her eyes you are not what she has been dreaming of her whole life.
