I'm pretty disturbed by the level of dismissiveness seen in many of the comments here. Most of us were suckled on that teat too. Then here for a musical explanation of how those who yearn for a rational faith can resolve doubt through symbolical interpretation. You've all been so helpful. It seems she'll expect you to become Mormon. Toxic is the right word. That's probably true, and that would be a great thing for her, but they wouldn't see it that way. But no one can move on to one of the 3 Kingdoms until they accept Christ and totally repent. But I was unusual in that I never really wanted to convert my husband I was worried I'd have to divorce him if he turned true Mormon and he didn't need me to believe way he does.
Life will chuck all sorts of bouncers at you. But you are setting yourself up to leave the Church more easily, and even if you agree the children will be raised Mormon, your kids will likely not continue to participate in the Church as adults. As for the Mormon cohort he will be exposed to, I have two thoughts: And so far as I could tell, it worked and no one tried to drag her husband into the church.

I don't think you should abandon the relationship just because she is lds. He is in his mid-thirties and is starting later than most residents. I am sooooo proud of him but his career has broken me in a way I don't know if I can piece back together. Sorry you had to go through this, but it's for the best if she's about to leave on a mission. I am scared of passing through all this you guys have passed before i even got to this blog i've thought bout it a lot. Would I like to have him by my side.
You have to make the decision as to what you want your home and your children to have in that home. Mormon girls are the best, and you are pretty lucky. When I acquired a personal testimony of the gospel as a teen, and made my own decisions regarding my faith, I felt very alone. That being sais, just be honest. You have been blessed with the equipment to make such decisions.
