December 16, Dating a mormon girl. My experience has been that personal similarities and differences are a bigger element than cultural differences. I can second this, as a lifelong utahn this is why I simply have a "no mormons" policy for dating.
Much better to marry in the faith if possible. In our church, women are treated with more respect, and are considered to have a literal free ticket to heaven, simply bu because their female. Yet, this life is hard on the whole family. God knows the big picture. That said, Mormons have learned to have fun without alcohol and often have to wait until drinkers are well-oiled and loosened up to join in the dopey-ness. We make time for each other every chance we get which sometimes is during the noon hour for lunch. The Mormon culture has mastered the forked tongue. So i try and be supportive with cute texts and never asking him to call me or do anything, but it is hard not to feel resentful. The idea of a rich doctor is almost antiquated.
Know there are a lot of Doctors who cheat though. You knew exactly what you signed up for when you married a doctor. I decided to sort of play along because she was amazing and I didn't believe some of the things she was telling me she actually believed. I wanted that full support though I am certainly not saying that marrying a Mormon ensures that. I was in your same position years ago.
Mormons think when you die, based on if you were a good person cough cough atheists you go to spirit "paradise" where they will teach you the gospel. My seminary teacher went off on me about dating a non Mormon when I was talking about going to his prom. When I talk to him about this he seems to agree that he doesn't like the person he's becoming and doesn't look forward to a career in medicine, but says he can't leave medicine. I keep busy with my own activities, but it becomes really hard to have a date night. If kids ever came into the picture though, I wouldn't want to be isolated from them psychologically or banned from walking my daughter down the aisle someday. If your date has been an active member of the Church who is following these moral guidelines, then she will not be willing to involve herself in a sexual relationship with you. Life is suddenly wonderful, and you catch yourself smiling, humming, and happy all the time. She is passionate about it. You can't provide that for her so your marriage will be defective from the outset.
