I will keep you posted and thanks again for your thoughtful response I really appreciate it. He's now in his 3rd year of a 4 year residency program and is hoping to do a 2 year fellowship next. As a non-Mormon male widower Catholic contemplating marrying a devout temple recommended widow, I thank you all for the wonderful blog. Your relationship with your family will be healed, and so will you. But it would not change my love for that person. I wish you the best of luck. You can always expand these into group dates by inviting other couples along, which may make her more comfortable in the early stages of your relationship.
Just know that she has been indoctrinated to believe that she wont reach the highest level of heaven if she isn't married in a Mormon temple to another Mormon. Dozens of missionaries have told me that the gender ratios in other countries are far, far worse. Going back in time, it was never encouraged for people to marry outside their faith and this covered most christian religions in the United States. A few years, maybe. It means that before anything else, you have to be clear in saying that you want to date a Mormon girl.

Some Mormon girls succumb to worldly laziness. I know that when we have children I will be doing most of the work. For me and the woman I'm in love with, we CAN discuss it without breaking down into spittle and hate. They therefore have a high standard to work toward. These were some tips to keep in mind when dating a Mormon guy or girl. We love each other and have known each other for years. You guys sound like you have a great and committed relationship - a true jewel in this world. I haven't read every post like you probably havebut I've read a lot of them. My boyfriend and I are both in medical school and it is so difficult to manage a relationship while surviving the class load. You will get to mingle with a lot of new people, and who knows, maybe you will also find the guy or girl of your dreams there.
