So I understand how it's easy to believe nonsense when you're brainwashed from birth, and how it can be comforting to believe your life is somehow very important in the grand scale of the universe, and how you don't have to be afraid of death because you'll go on to a better place where you'll live happily ever after for eternity. I have dated all walks of TBM women TBM women are closet freaks. When the weather is nice outside, I crave for a walk with my husband, but have to tell myself he is busy saving lives. It's also possible that deep down she's like many of us here, and her shelf will break and she'll want out.
So that's something I can't say is good or bad. But that was also a possibility if he had married a non-mormon. How could I help a non-Mormon spouse to feel like a member of my ward family when he is not a member of my church. They will serve as a constant reminder to her that she needs to conform- and you won't be wearing any. He says he has put-in a lot of his life into his profession and his career is very important to him. I think marriage means sacrifice on both sides.
To them, everyone is either TBM, hasn't learned the truth yet, or has some kind of personal failing laziness, desire to sin, allowed themself to be deceived by satan, etc. While that is the case sometimes, it Is much more of an exception than a rule. Really, I'm interested in this too. I love him dearly with all of my heart. They are at the service of others at the expense of their family. Thanks for commenting on my blog. I mean, I get where it comes from but it's so ridiculous. I've only seen him 3 times. Sometimes I wonder if it's "Better to end it now and cut off the limb and let the stump heal".
Thanks for sharing your story. She will probably feel persecuted and attacked if you try. I am married to an ER doc and agree that having your own life, being independent, and not going into the relationship with any preconceived notions is what makes it work for us. The woman I have feelings for is conflicted on her religion in regards to me. Richard often laments that if he had taken a tech job, he would have been able to actually make a damn good salary for the last 8 years instead of going into debt with med school and making zero money. What if she absolutely despises sex. It hasn't been easy for me to create a regular social life that involves me missing a husband. I miss my husband dearly.
