Marriage is unbelievably amazing and indescribably painful; I have been at it for 28 years with my soul mate. A Mormon wife will also want to bring the kids along, and that should be discussed and decided before marriage and before kids. This isn't what life is about.
Over the years, it would have felt increasingly burdensome to accommodate practices that seemed to me like superstition. She can never hang out on Sundays because she apparently spends the entire day at church. I know some people don't like the sound of "working for a relationship", but it can be so rewarding. You can always expand these into group dates by inviting other couples along, which may make her more comfortable in the early stages of your relationship. He has no idea now long it actually takes to finish boards and match. You join the LDS Church. I recall reading a talk from Elder Nelson in which he indicated that the church teaches general principles and does not spend time teaching exceptions to general principles. And as an outsider it will be obvious to you what's going on, but here's an awesome breakdown from a couple that flipped from "we go to church every week - we will write a Mormon blog" to resigning over the new policy banning children of gays all over the NY Times this month and something that is upsetting many staunch church members a few days ago.
This can also be the basis for forming important friendships, and learning proper skills for social interaction. I'm going to disagree with what some of the people have said. You aren't engaged or married or anything, you can't just know that she won't see the light and remain crazy Mormon forever. He has chosen to become a GP rather than an orthopeadic surgeon because that allows him to be home more. It's very lonely right now but thank God it's only a few more days.
