We talked about getting married early in our relationship since we had known each other forever. So, kudos to you for having such a wonderful relationship for so long and getting through step 1 and 2 and matching. I also studied his advice for approaching and dating women. I have finally realized that the church is fake and I'm so grateful that I got a second chance with this guy. Breaking up with someone solely because of religion is something people condemn alot on this sub when its a Mormon breaking it off with a non Mormon, but if floats both ways. We are long distance, and it is hard, because when we are together I spend much of time alone waiting for him to come back from the hospital. Seek advice, and like the chick said, talk and talk and talk untill its all sorted out in your mind, and in his.
I'm so glad you mentioned some of the things that I have been suggesting to my boyfriend for some time, but he has been skeptical about. Like you, I didn't want to stress him out by giving him some sort of ultimatum or demands. Their values and the values of popular western culture are wildly disparate, which can be tough for them to navigate early in life. I am a non-Mormon who moved to Utah for college. Things are very hard for me right now too. If we do, I will be back to share my experiences. Well, you won't be getting into anything soon.
I posted April 11, Thank you so much for responding to my post as you also know it is kind of difficult to vent about our fears and concerns to friends and family when they are not familiar with the hardship of being with a Doctor. I wanted to thank all the respondents and the blog author for sharing. Then she took a vacation to Utah and in her letter to me she stated that she had seen the Temple, and I never heard from her again. That is a goal worth fighting for. LDS theology heavily promotes the idea that marriage and family are an important source of happiness in this life, not just the next. For now, again, don't expect a decade long relationship. Drinkers tend to rely on drink before they can have fun. If you are an atheist or a non-believer, then let your date know, and politely decline the invitation. Amasa enjoys art, music, and traveling.
I chanced upon this post because I was looking for help. This is by design. He is in his mid-thirties and is starting later than most residents. Although we're young, we've talked about marriage and the realities of everything. It is hard for the others to understand my situation, people must just think that you don't need to worry about anything, but this is not the case. Wow i am dating a dr and love him so much but i wonder if love is enough. This is something that's very important to her, and it's difficult to be married to someone who doesn't share the same values. If she can't or won't consider that the church is a lie, you need to move on because this relationship can't go anywhere. My husband not only supports me going to church he encourages it because he knows that it is a part of me and makes me happy. I get looking ahead, but it seems like you are very unhappy with the way things are now.
