We are trying to conceive now, and I am contemplating if this was the right path for me. If you end up marrying a true believing Mormon, your marriage will be a threesome. You should start raising CES letter issues with her and see how she handles it. In her mind if you never accept the gospel you are denying her eternal exaltation as a God.
But she probably is more in love with the idea of you, than with you. YOUR prayers are just as efficacious as a priesthood holders are. It's simply sometimes hard to accept that while he is your number one priority, you probably never will be. I have no idea if he stayed. I realize that the answers to many of these questions may be different for every family, and that we need to continue to discuss them more as a couple as we continue to think about our future. I appreciate my own space too, but it felt shitty to have this great time with him and not get so much as a text until we are making plans for next time. You'll know pretty quick where she stands. He is studying to get into a residency program and I struggle to get his time.
I don't mind staying home because I understand he's tired. How is that gonna work. I agree she should be able to watch a movie or do her own research. Now I feel like a stepford wife. Might be worth working through the missionary lessons and CES letter to see if they can agree at least to disagree. However, for me, there have been some perks too.
Edit - I just read through some of your other comments. I have finally learned to pray to change my heart, not his. Pay for the first few dates. It is soooo difficult to cope. 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.
