If she says that the mission was the greatest experience and best two years of her life, any chance you have at a normal long-term healthy relationship is dim unless you convert. It would behoove you in this situation to act like a kid yourself. You and your husband are truly a team, even though things are not always equal. I have dated all walks of TBM women TBM women are closet freaks. Breaking up with someone solely because of religion is something people condemn alot on this sub when its a Mormon breaking it off with a non Mormon, but if floats both ways. But no one can move on to one of the 3 Kingdoms until they accept Christ and totally repent. Try a variety of dates. We strive to improve each other.
I am clinging to it because we are back to the same old thing I must admit this last couple of years has been hard on me. While that is the case sometimes, it Is much more of an exception than a rule. They will teach the boys that masturbation is evil, which will cause most boys to lie about it and feel deep shame and guilt. I'm no pushover; flexing like this just keeps our lives sane. God told me to marry my husband. We've been dating two plus years, and we find a key is taking vacations. His whole family joined after he did. Earn course certificates and optional CME. He will have to wait outside if his children marry in the temple. But there will still be a lag of several days where I feel like I'm checking my phone constantly waiting to hear from him.
There is NO guarantee that marrying a returned missionary RM in the temple equates with love and happiness. And the longer you see her you won't be getting out of anything soon either. Is your mind made up and you want justifying support.
I would go ahead and make boundaries with the conversation about kids and church, if that is your preference. Thank you so much for this blog. She has to come to the realization that the church may not be infallible, it can't be forced on her or proven to her. I seriously questioned the future of our relationship based on that fact alone. But I have no idea how much of his lack of contact is actually due to him being busy or if that's just an excuse to not commit.
