I often think about what I would tell my daughters if one day they tell me that they are dating a doctor……. Now just ask yourself what are the odds of her thinking her way out that crazy nonsense. A lot of Mormons think that good people will obviously recognize the truthfulness of the church and quickly join. Until you can believe someone else's beliefs are reasonable, you will not be able to treat them with the respect they deserve.
When those are not around or when the circumstances or the spirit indicate otherwise then prayer is more than enough. In the interfaith marriages that work where one is LDS and the other is not religious, it only works out when the LDS partner is not fully a believer anymore. Mormonism is a religion that's as manipulative as it is comforting. I am so in love with him and he says he is too minus the stupid cheating. I love him more than anyone else I've been with - but it takes a strong, patient woman willing to sacrifice a lot, to date a doctor. But he told me that he needs a wife who could take care of him, kids and house. 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. But I'm wondering about one thing: Do I have cause to be scared out of my mind, or should I just take a chill pill. YOu ladies out there My soon to be fiance is a doctor, he'll be ending his internship in and maybe will do his postgraduate abroad.
I would not want my children raised Mormon which she seems intent on. This is wonderful and in accordance with the desires of a loving Father in Heaven, but it can turn a marriage on its ear, if the spouse is unprepared. I am getting increasingly more resentful of the times I think he can choose us instead of residency. Life is suddenly wonderful, and you catch yourself smiling, humming, and happy all the time. BUT it could easily have gone the other way. Either way, if you have kids and you don't convert, she will divorce you and take your kids away from you and you will be shunned from her community.
It certainly isn't easy. Being married to a doctor is no walk in the park. I didn't even believe. Thanks again for the continued comments and replies to my edit. Why Mormons don't drink wine or coffee. Not every LDS person does, unfortunately.
