It's what I agnostic atheist exmo do with my girlfriend reasonable TBM. But when my oldest daughter hit 12, the lessons started to have one major theme: This is what girls are told should be their primary goal. If she can accept me for who I am and what I believe, knowing that I'll never give her the eternal family she wants, then maybe we'll be ok. Dating does not necessarily mean an exclusive relationship. We decided early on that having only one working parent was critical -- I am always the one that flexes to his schedule like it or notand staying home with our child enables me to do that. But there are a lot of women who post here who have flipped from TBM to apostate. I think the most important thing is to bring up the issues as questions rather than points as why she's wrong.
I haven't ever felt this way about anyone and yea that is a little unnerving in by itself but then add the not texting for several days and not seeing him that often and you cant help but wonder A few of my friends have flat out stopped talking to me because of him. Best of luck OP. Honestly I'd let things keep going. I don't think you "dodged a bullet" but I do think new residents change Other wives told me my husband would "come back" but we are still in the training so I can't tell you whether that is completely true or not. Jack is right about the demographics. If a direct contact is simply not possible given the residency schedule, then how about a bedtime phone call. Now, he has just started a new training in a new country and i am so lonely here. Did my heart good.
Whatever your leaders have said, consider their counsel, give it the weight it deserves, then counsel with your Heavenly Father about your own situation. I decided that if the church taught the general principle that couples should be married in the temple and that was not possible for me if I married this girlthen I should see if my choice would be an exception to the rule. He's a big boy and can make up his own mind.
I'm not going to break up with her because of her religion, but if we can't come to some kind of understanding about what we'd do with kids After reading every page of that CES letter I am fully aware this religion is a complete fabrication. My sisters married to the temple served a mission etcв. If she can't or won't consider that the church is a lie, you need to move on because this relationship can't go anywhere.
