But what if your girlfriend is Mormon, but not active in the Church. I expected to find this sisterhood of wives that would comfort, uplift, and laugh with one another. It sounds like you have found a good one. I know "Meet the Mormons" isn't what I'm looking for I went through a very similar experience earlier this year and the community was extremely helpful.
Maybe that is why I am grouchy and can't cheer when my husband becomes a director for yet another board at the hospital. Life is too short. I am totally okay with anything that doesn't place physical or mental demands on me. He said that if there is an exception, it is for the individual to obtain through the spirit. Maybe you will win. There's this fantasy perpetuated in the religion that if you're good and pure enough, that any man you meet would eventually see the truth and join the church for you. I wanted so badly to marry a guy who had recently left the church. I have never been your typical domestically skilled stay at home mom. I follow a blogger who is a nurse and her stories are gut-wrenching. She's most likely secretly playing out fantasies of converting you, marrying you in a Mormon temple, and having a very Mormon life, OP.
In fact, your GF is probably one of the countless Mormon women who get married only to find out they have zero sex drive because of what they learned growing up. Here's my advice though: It doesn't sound like you want that though, so you're going to have to talk to him. With so much pervasive degeneracy in the media, Mormon parents think they are safe showing their kids Disney movies. I know how long his residency lasts. My job starts soon and in January I get started on my masters degree at a new school. I married a recent convert girl в she may as well have been a nonmember в and less than a year later we got an annulment. She might not realize how important it is to compromise. But it does make it hard for me to develop and strengthen our relationship. I don't think it's going overboard, though, to state one very possible and very likely scenario, and that is that this girl may likely be completely indoctrinated and believing. These exclusions, dictated by doctrine, hold the potential to create wedges between you, both immediately, and in the long term.
But she probably is more in love with the idea of you, than with you. I would probably suggest that you cut your losses now. These are things your wife may consider matter-of-fact and you may be surprised by if you don't discuss them now. As for having children, expect to be a single parent. Even more lonely for myself as I have no one to complain this situation to. Propagandists in the media throw around the word patriarchy as if it is synonymous with anything male. Some exceptions and valid reasons do exist for divorce but self righteousness is not on of them. I just found your blog.
