And after dating a few months we both knew we wanted to get married. What do you do while they are away. So good to find this I am married to a Dr with 2 young kids. I think that Doctors have to be selfish to a degree. So do you just never give anything back to SOs in terms of time or small gestures. Learning from a young age that any religion will do means that your children almost certainly will ultimately believe that any religion will do. I say to you, decisions determine destiny. She's too heavily invested in Mormonism for that. Righteous love does conquer all but in some cases it takes a lot longer than we are willing to wait.
The most important thing is an open dialogue, as you say, and utmost respect for the other person. I learned to read by reading the Book of Mormon. Some exceptions and valid reasons do exist for divorce but self righteousness is not on of them. We like each other, but I feel like giving up also at times. Be prepared for divorce. It's not impossible, just painful and unlikely. After 15 years of marriage, I'm so used to living a separate life with our 3 kids. You can't gamble on her seeing Mormonism for the shit show that it is. If you are willing to understand and accept these, whether or not you are a Mormon, you can have a fun time dating Mormon girls.
