It would be ludicrous to think otherwise. Plan on rolling your eyes A LOT at family get torturers together. We need to believe fully and then we make choices, not the other way around. Now we go out to eat or to watch a play or do something together about once every week or two, which is a nice change compared to once a year. Right now she won't even watch a movie. Mind control is not child's play, and the Mormon church has real people's blood on their hands for the despicable damage they've caused. There are so many names in both English and Chinese. But the loneliness and the hours ER shifts are taken everything I had left in me. Yeah man, don't doubt someone who was a missionary will try to convert you. This can make it harder for you two to do things together.
She's told me the church is one of the most important things to her, but from what I've researched already there's no way I would subject my future children to this culture. I'm a Mormon girl in love with an amazing non-Mormon man. In particular, I relate to the fact that I'm feeling more like a booty call these days and it's making me start to resent him. I was born and raised in the LDS faith.
I just pray daily that no matter what we end up doing we are 30 min or less away from each other. Let me tell you, it is NOT any easier. As Joanna said, marriage takes some work no matter what, but being married to your best friend, and listening to the spirit brings great blessings. There's a picture of the magic rock he found while digging a neighbor's well.
If she was anything like me, that idea is probably foreign, radical, confusing, interesting, and inspiring to her. The reality, however, has been far from it, as the small number of wives we do have in the program seem to be busy raising their kids or not really interested in developing these relationships. I think you should start by having some very honest conversations. We go for hikes with the dogs and bike rides but I feel so lonely and it breaks my heart every time I have to leave his house because I know that I won't see him for a week or more. He expects gourmet meals and an immaculate house. Mormons are very particular about dressing. Just going to jump in and then jump out I remember how idealistic I was back then, but here's reality: You will be without him most of the time. It seems she'll expect you to become Mormon.
