I like to think that what you said really resonated with her. I know that time spent together even when we're both just sleeping is valuable. All i want to do it cry reading all of these posts. Which is an absolute lie. She will be oh-so-grateful if you do not pressure her to discard those values. Twitter did not respond. Being what you can even for 2 hours a week will help. So you made a wise decision. I have been dating a neuro surgeon that has his own practice for a few months now.
Can I add to this extremely old thread. Nor was there a lack of compassion or respect. I have missed the Church in some ways, and certainly the blessings of a temple marriage. He sees all families being able to stay together. Break it off amicably now, before it gets too difficult. It's very noble but still demanding. Takes some getting use to. He of course had to check his emails while we were on vacation Maybe I have to accept it Maybe that's why so many I know live separate lives I feel each of your words. If your heart longs for children, a family and love- why should you stop yourself holding out for some mystical Mormon man to swoop you off your feet.
The history of racism and violence is upsetting. The church is really good at putting on a happy, wholesome face to show the world, but if you look behind the curtain, you see that it's a despicable cult. You can be very committed to someone but only be able to fit them in the limited free time you have. But of course this does not mean that mixed religion children cannot grow up to be LDS stalwarts. Plan on rolling your eyes A LOT at family get torturers together.
It seems like mormons in particular are even more crazy than the majority of crazy religious people, and the manipulation and treatment of people who wish to think for themselves and challenge their beliefs is really frightening. I have a tendency to be overly sensative emotionally and the trauma of being forced to choose between someone I love and want to spend the rest of my with and Eternal Mormon Celestial Salvation caused me extensive emotional damage that I have struggled with ever since. 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. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches that all sexual relationships outside of marriage defined as the legal union between a man and a woman are sinful. He believes in God, but also believes that God is everywhere, and therefore does not need to be worshipped in a specific place of worship with specific prayers.
