I dated non mormon men. I know, I know, this is the last thing you want to hear. Make an honest effort, and see if you reach the walk-away point. This man basically tells you in a simple way within 6 minutes. And I never found that "good Mormon girl". I have had to compromise more often than I would have liked. Move on, but after thanksgiving. My life may not be as stressful as that of a medical resident or a doctor, but I do often spend upward of 70 - 80 hours per week working. Hopefully they have some say in it, but I'm speaking about other churchgoers' expectations here, and probably your wife's. 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.
I tried to date Mormon women, honestly. She was fine marrying in an LDS church instead of the temple, didn't want to convert me, and most importantly didn't try to change my beliefs or opinions. The Mormon church is certainly a time consuming church. I would find it therapeutic to type out all of my feelings and at the same time he would get an update. Love Notes for Him. Based on what you have written about your GF, my opinion is that you should cut your losses and move on. You would be her back up plan in case she can't find a guy who is a returned missionary, preferably from a prominent LDS family. Honestly I'd let things keep going.
I know a lot of Mormons who were also not raised on fear and guilt and strict gender rolesвbut I was, as were many of my peers. Over the years, it would have felt increasingly burdensome to accommodate practices that seemed to me like superstition. Do some research of your own as well, so that you know a little more about the person you are dating. I'm glad you both have found a way to get past the incredible forces that are working against you. I would do it all over again and thank my lucky stars that I found this man, that he loves, and that I love him. If you are worries about her or her family trying to convert you, be honest.
This is crunch time and years worth of effort are on the line for him. I love my non-member husband of nearly 20 years. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. So I am a female senior pre-med student. I had many extremely hurtful things said to me, along with an intervention hosted by my married-in-the-temple-and-divorced grandmother. I'm on mobile and it isn't letting me post the URL.
