I knew a woman who married a man who converted to the church and she spent the rest of their married life telling him he was not good enough. I guess I was just hoping there was way for it to work. And sometimes I think we equate easiness with happiness. The independent work is just as important as the work we do as a couple. What are the strategies for not taking the absence personally I mentioned above that I'm cognizant of my SO's constraints, but it's definitely hard I have been married to an Interventional Radiologist 30 yrs. It is a new experience yet for me as I have only been married 6 months to a doctor.
I know from my own experience that God has the answers and that He speaks to those individuals who humbly seek Him. Our relationship is not perfect, not easy, but absolutely amazing. My religious faith saved my sanity but I still worry. It is not something that should be taken lightly. They are an essential part of my existence The part that among all the heartbreak and death and pain of my patients, makes me feel like a human being, worthy of having my own life. I'm the overly busy person.
Adore them and make them feel loved and appreciated. I am very active with my work, social life, and activities and independent. I'm pointing this out because I don't know her and couldn't tell you what to expect. If they believe their religion, they will ultimately cause you pain and disappointment. I tell her there's no pressure and we'll just see how things play out. Her experience may or may not be typical, but it is something to consider. You will always be second place. If she is as real deal as you say she is, she believes this also.
Narcissism, androgyny, obsession with pop cultureвthe problems with Western women go on and on. The doctrinal and afterlife issues around a non-temple marriage are an entirely different topic, and one that I am personally much more at peace with than my questions about how one might make an interfaith marriage work in this life. Hi, like others I've read a lot of the posts but still have a few questions. You;ll get the answer you needвprayers and blessings for you both.
