So there's THAT to look forward to. Additionally, you need to take stock of your beliefs and acknowledge they may change overtime. If so, you have a chance. Unfortunately I've been sort of seeing a girl who is basically a real deal Mormon. He married the new girl then cheated on her. And of course, everyone has a different experience. I still cry every night for himbecause I love himprobably always will. Know there are a lot of Doctors who cheat though. A stereotype I hope will be destroyed someday, but not today.
But you will benefit if you can help him maintain his strength. If your spouse believes in infant baptism, will you allow the children to have that. For now, again, don't expect a decade long relationship. Finally, it is a very tight-knit community and despite efforts to insulate you from conversion-minded missionaries, you will be exposed to a lot of people that think, like this woman does, that atheists are without a moral compass. He might just be unpracticed at your "love language".
Communicate and get those answers, OP. It is very painful, considering that we have an 8-year old son. There is NO guarantee that marrying a returned missionary RM in the temple equates with love and happiness. That will most likely be the deal breaker for her. Interesting to read the concerns of so many doctor's wives.
I want so much to be supportive, but since my family is gone, I find myself afraid that I will come off as needy if I ask for attention or more affection. When missionaries come home, they are like top dog religious people. I got married to a Mormon woman. It's a less common occurrence, but it happens. My advice would be to become as familiar as possible with her schedule, and then plan activities that will allow you both to get to know each other better, avoid movies. Before the cap inresidents sometimes worked hours per week. How else could you go through 8 years of schooling and 3 years of residency without losing your mind. Never marry someone with the goal of a post-marriage conversion.
