Does that make sense. And as much as I love my boyfriend with my whole heart, I can see now that sadly maybe I might have to reconsider a life married to him. This also means giving her something specific to do. It is not something that should be taken lightly. I have a better and fuller relationship with God because my own practice has been supplemented by additional observance. In particular, I relate to the fact that I'm feeling more like a booty call these days and it's making me start to resent him. Basically nothing like reality. I forgot to add, that if you marry and alow your children to be raised as Mormon, chances are you wont be able to be at their wedding because it will be in the temple.
With such high standards of perfection, Mormon girls want a man who validates their efforts and confidently provides directionвa man who expects them to be beautiful. Although most of our communication is through text. She's likely openly telling her family that it's okay he's not Mormon because she's going to get him baptized. Your comments make my day. Ultimately, it comes down to this. Don't put them through that either. Consider also the evolving perspective of the potential husband. It really helped to make me feel better.
I don't remember much of the breakup because it's been overshadowed by what happened to her afterwards. You got some good advice from the other posters on how to maintain contact. Of course my parents love each other very much and would not choose another spouse, which is why her response caught me off guard. I hope he can do it. I think there's a chance you two can find a way to agree on a lifestyle and values.
This girl is also a real person, not a caricature of a cult member, and even if the ultimate result is a breakup, she deserves to be treated with compassion and respect. She, her family, and her friends all believe that she can't get into the Celestial Kingdom VIP Heaven unless she is "sealed" to a Mormon husband. I'd at least insist that at 12 the kids can choose to disaffiliate. Personally I have a rule that I will not enter a relationship with a believing Mormon. The dots are extremely close for every LDS person, its just extremely hard to connect them.
