Now, lest you look at this all and say, "sheesh, go to counseling. I have had more than one girl, who I had definite chemsitry with, who the girl really liked me and we had deep and intense conversations as well as a real physichal connection to. I feel as if my husband and I just live passed eachother. I get that a lot to people saying 'be happy you married a doctor' 'u will have a glamorous wonderful life' they would not get it unless they be one-that is being a docs wife, the loneliness is the worst especially when your newly wedded and 2nd month of ur marriage he has to go for his night calls in dec, which includes our first christmas: I thought I was the only one who barely gets communication throughout the day, not married but am dating a surgeon and have for 6 years. Like you I grew up with and taught the standard LDS beliefs about temple marriage, celestial kingdom, etc. How do you handle the ocd behavior. He wanted our kids exposed to Christianity for intellectual reasons and likes the community. Trust me, I too tried to make it work with my very Mormon also returned missionary ex-girlfriend.
It means that before anything else, you have to be clear in saying that you want to date a Mormon girl. There is NO guarantee that marrying a returned missionary RM in the temple equates with love and happiness. Part of me wants to say Yes!!. It's so sad to think that people so young will be stuck wearing 19th century undies when they should enjoy their years of being young and stylish. Rights of all genders are supported here. You are too young to deal with this. She's a wonderful person and I think we could work, so yes. If you are not old enough to consider marriage, you should be careful about having a serious, exclusive relationship. If all you are looking for is some non-serious dates to have a good time, you should be fine. Your post could have been written by me, in August.
You;ll get the answer you needвprayers and blessings for you both. It is almost impossible for me to hold my tears back. I'm firmly in the RUN camp.
