I was skeptical whether this would work with Mormon girlsв sheltered girls who would never step inside a dance club or be wooed by pickup artists. Lots of really thorough replies. 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. It has worked and my children are very protective of their father. Even if the church believes a bunch of crazy nonsense, and she believes it too, I still really like her and would like to see whether we can have some good intellectual conversations about this stuff. We should all remember this is a human being, and she has a brain. It's why TBMs are so bugged by people that leave the church. Well, you won't be getting into anything soon. Seclusion has served to preserve their desirable traits, but it also makes it difficult to gain rapport. You;ll get the answer you needвprayers and blessings for you both.
Your not alone I married a women ob 20 years ago three kids 19,15,12 Also lost my job as a homebuilder my thoughts are with you. Me doing everything around the house, running all errands, and working full time doesn't compete with the high stakes work he does and he doesn't understand how hard I am working also because of his job. If you are feeling neglected, then tell him so.
Do you believe in the Gospel as taught by the Church. And what happens when we have kids?. I think the secret to a successful marriage and a successful family is to respect each other's space and to enjoy all the good times no matter how trivial they are and to foucs on the positive aspects of the marriage an family life. Like you I grew up with and taught the standard LDS beliefs about temple marriage, celestial kingdom, etc. Easily found in most hospital lobbies. I'm not going to hit the town with single ladies and couples find it awkward just inviting you over.
Pay for the first few dates. In the end, if the guy is the keeper you say he is then go with your gut. That was hard on my relationship and I had to give up on my dream of being a computer programmer. And once you are done with those, ask about social issues and where she stands. Will you be open to me teaching my children my athiest point of view. Ignore the busy-bodies who want to condemn your significant other.
