You just need to figure out where your girlfriend is. Well, you know what you're not going to get into before marriage So fuck that relationship. We had a long distant relationship for 3 years. By Thursday, I'd feel like he disappeared. In the meantime, she will probably view you as being less than a Mormon man who is a faithful priesthood holder. It is exactly what I needed. I have been on both sides of this situation, and I know how much it sucks to feel like you're doing everything you can to make it as easy and convenient as possible for the other person to spend time with you, but theyre still not seeing you all that much, and you think they should be able to give you a little more. I have a better and fuller relationship with God because my own practice has been supplemented by additional observance.
The important part of finding a partner to marry does not, in my opinion, revolve around whether or not you are of the same religion. You'll be richly rewarded. Be a good influence. God will help you both work this out. We've been together for a little over a year, after having a pretty severe break at right after the 1 year mark. I will have to keep you update on where we match. My husband is finishing up residency and is never around. I am a non-Mormon who moved to Utah for college. Dude just to summarize what I think is the majority of the comments. I'm telling you the spouse who stays pays a terrible price.
I don't think we are going to end up being friends but I'll get over that. It'll reinforce the wisdom of running from this disaster in the making. He want to wait at least one year before he makes any decision he want to take it slow. I had a business, 3 engineering degrees, numerous patents, and was working countless hours a week to try and keep a roof over our heads, make sure she was fed, the house was clean, bills were paid, etc. Topics like race and polygamy have been "adequately" explained away, so I don't think we'd get anywhere discussing those things.
While that is the case sometimes, it Is much more of an exception than a rule. I do hope I'm able to make the necessary sacrifices to make my marriage work. So i try and be supportive with cute texts and never asking him to call me or do anything, but it is hard not to feel resentful. If she won't reason with your investigation of the church, nope on out and go on your merry way. I feel I am not appreciated and valued as a wife. There is a difference between commitment and time together. And I don't have issues with her, hell, haven't even seen her in over 20 years, but the experience with the whole Mormon thing gave me better insight in to many things in life. Her Religion is the single most important thing in her life. There's a reason so many Utahns are on anti depressants and anti anxiety meds. I want to make this relationship work so bad, but I feel like he will never understand.
