He has changed a lot throughout this process, but I don't know what he will be like once we are finished. Be specific every time you ask. I've had friends with spouses that got Fulbrights or grants to study in other countries. I don't know if I can do it or if I want to. What can you expect. Take your date to a club with loud music and an open bar, or an R-rated or violent movie, and the prospects of it going well are daunting. Oh, yeah, and this girl belongs to a verifiable cult.
Good luck and my prayers are with you. Brown May 27, 0. If she is motivated enough to want to go on a mission, she will likely not settle for having a second class "eternal companion" you who is a convert or one who cannot be sealed to her for eternity. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. If this happens, it might click something in her mind that says that what she experienced was pleasurable and she would like to have it again. By all means, I encourage you to try having those discussions and to make a mental note of when you would choose to walk away instead. Also don't ask questions that are too intrusive, or those that you would not like to answer yourself.
Actually, Mormon families are shrinking, just like those outside the Church, but they will always be larger than families outside Mormondom. It's pretty rough waking up to drive home that early and then trying to go back to sleep again for just a little bit before getting up again for work. This is right for me and for us. Do you want a home that is focused on the church with all of the blessings there of or a home that is devoid of the blessings of the priesthood, Sundays without your husband at your side at church with your children celebrating in the gospel. Reading has become difficult, because I have trouble focusing.
But I do still largely consider us an interfaith couple. We need to get over ourselves and start loving each other how the Lord intended. I love my job very much and it has give me many joys, but stimultaneus many hours apart from my children, my husband and my mother when there is a need. 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. When we are together it is amazing he obviously has work that he takes care of when I am there but for the most part he tries his best to leave work at the office. It is soooo hard. And your future kids will be taught that you are the reason they don't have an "eternal" family. In many ways, she was everything that I ever wanted in a spouse, but in other ways she was not what I ever expected. Also, love how you describe how God has our backs and we can actually act on the notion of things hoped for that are not seen instead of the quaint pseudo idea that all things are known in advance, step by step, and lead to mortal and eternal bliss. However, and this might sound sad.
