I think a lot of people just yell run whenever this topic comes up and like you I think that's unfair. Your email address will not be published. Some exceptions and valid reasons do exist for divorce but self righteousness is not on of them. However, and this might sound sad. To others making this consideration, I would certainly suggest that you converse with your Father in Heaven about this important choice. Trying to maintain a long-distance relationship with someone at home or attempting to date someone you meet while on mission are both distractions. I don't know if I want to be a single mother of four kids.
It's a great idea to know where you stand so that you'll be prepared when this comes up in conversation. Best wishes to those struggling with these big, life-altering decisions. That's just too high a price to pay. If she was anything like me, that idea is probably foreign, radical, confusing, interesting, and inspiring to her. These are nice people. It's scary to feel like you might never measure up to someone's expectations you love. I'm surprised this thread is still getting replies.
It is a new experience yet for me as I have only been married 6 months to a doctor. Are days like this going to be normal. I can second this, as a lifelong utahn this is why I simply have a "no mormons" policy for dating. But that was also a possibility if he had married a non-mormon. At that point we quit going and focused on her goals and family bonding. That one I haven't asked him about yet though since I feel like it would be a little presumptuous and might seem like I'm rushing things commitment-wise. About two years into our marriage, I got sick of waiting in bed for him to come read scriptures with me. If you are in a movie theater, you can't talk, so you can't get to know the girl you are dating. Each time, I start to make friends and have to leave them and move.
I have been married to an anesthesiologist for 15 years his 2nd marriage. What a bozza topic. He would not appreciate my sacrifice of course, because they are often very self-center mind. I don't know why the system allows this type of treatment Not only do the residents feel like they "should" be giving every single bit of their energy, intellect, passion, soul to their residency programs, but they are told by their program directors, attendings and everyone else around them that they "must". I often think about what I would tell my daughters if one day they tell me that they are dating a doctor……. Accompany them and support them for as long as you can and then remind them why you joined together. Should either of you sisters raise your children and wonder what faith will they choose. I am also certain that there are callings and opportunities that I would have had, were I married to a faithful LDS woman, that I have missed.
