As Joanne mentioned, should you marry interfaith, you will have lots of help from fellow ward members on converting your spouse. 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. It can burn, and it can burn you hardcore. Real love just happens. Luckily he also wrote back really long emails and it helped us stay in touch we were doing overseas long distance-so that helped a lot. I chanced upon this post because I was looking for help. Thanks for commenting on my blog. I would love to someday find myself sitting in the pew with you, sharing this amazing journey.
I let her know it's not healthy to expect someone else to change - we can only control ourselves and not others. If he has to work late call a girlfriend or paint a picture. God works by small and simple means to bring about His great and eternal purposes.
She has encouraged me to read LDS. I have no control over my schedule I'm sure you all remember those daysand it kills me to know that he has moved thousands of kilometers away from our home town with me so that I can do this residency. There are other issues at play here that are my husband's personal history and that he is now trying to come to grips with, and I have hope that we can put our marriage and our family back together-but the job marches on, relentlessly, and there is no time allotted for personal healing. Fifty years later, not one of her 3 children, her dozen grandchildren or her numerous great grandchildren is an active member of the LDS church.
I was going to be having leftovers of everything; time, energy, etc. Eternity is a long time. Interreligious marriages are not a new thing. Yes, worse than intern year. His father died and he was not given one day off. Again, reiterating it, don't expect a decade's worth of time with her, but enjoy her good while you two are together. The point of a date is to get to know someone better.
