As Joanna said, marriage takes some work no matter what, but being married to your best friend, and listening to the spirit brings great blessings. Because she already lives the covenants in most of the meaningful ways. Even if she does, you'll be the reason in her family's eyes. It is so hard, so sad and so lonely. If I could I would marry a businessman or a builder which could have earned us a lot more and wouldn't mean we had to move so much. I had no idea how hard it could get. Many Mormons stick to a small group of friends within the church. Thank you for this advice!. I wouldn't just start bringing up the ces letter and the problems in it. My husband did his best to do the same though a medical career makes it a challenge.
Thanks for these thoughts. I've been dating my girl for 5 years and we have just broke up because she told me she likes someone else but she say she still loves me I have been married for 8 months, my husband is starting his training in orthopaedics Never imagined my life will be like this The 3 years we were together prior marriage when he was an intern were not like this at all I read all the comments and I can see there no much hope for things to improve Constant absences, constants arguments, I have to make myself available when he is available, I am an architect, I have a demanding job myself, but still beings doctor seems to be a lot more important than my career. Oh, boo hoo to me you say When you are made a promise and fall in love with a man who has a broken marriage, you begin to believe that one day you will be with him.
Some other times I feel alone in my marriage. Willl he build resentment at the struggle to get him to change whether real or imagined. I was thinking the same thing when I read this. What a miserable state. The divorce factor may allow some women to experience single-faith marriage at some point as some Mormon men marry multiple Mormon women over the course of their lifetimes, but the overall point stands: The only options for these women involve seeking a partner outside of the church, or a lifetime of celibacy. Much better to marry in the faith if possible.
Good luck and best wishes as you head back out into the dating pool. But no one can move on to one of the 3 Kingdoms until they accept Christ and totally repent. She will try to convert you. Take what you read with a grain of salt. I'm pretty disturbed by the level of dismissiveness seen in many of the comments here. There is no way this will work out. Here is hoping I manage to land myself one of them and preferably a single one!!.
