Is it naive to think we could raise our children to fully participate in two different faiths. Honestly, you are probably the only person who she has ever known to outwardly label themselves an atheist. Bet as Joanna has said there are some things you should think carefully about в and this needs to be done with your head, not your heart. She hasn't submitted the paperwork yet but I have no doubt that she will do this eventually. God works by small and simple means to bring about His great and eternal purposes. Lonliness is hard no matter the reason for it. And most of those end up with both people losing their faith or a divorce. I agree she should be able to watch a movie or do her own research.
I've told her that but maybe she doesn't believe me. But, you will probably lose. Best of luck OP. Ma'am I really do thank you for being very blunt and quite honest in your writing about your life. So there's THAT to look forward to. It seems like a minor point, but I have noticed that every Mormon girl who disobeys the Mormon direction to avoid coffee has something majorly wrong with her. Too often, I think, priesthood holders think that being overly controlling, they are simply wielding their authority in the home. I grew up in a very strict Mormon home and dated only Mormon men until I met my now husband. For me, one of those bouncers is my marriage to the most wonderful woman alive.
Thanks for letting us know. With the amount of hours they must study and work they are exhausted a lot. This makes me so sad. He was not a prominent man in the church. A good man is not defined by his religion and a great marriage is not defined by where it takes place. These same principles have helped build strong, successful religious communities for thousands of years. This is the type of doctrine that Joseph rejected and so have the leaders of the church. Most want nothing to do with the church. Marriage offers a chance to develop generosity of spirit and a willingness to be improved by the one we love, no matter what faith tradition he or she may claim. I met this girl a while ago and we really hit it off.
A lot of people will tell you to run but if she is in her late 20s most Mormon guys her age are married. My question is, my 30th birthday weekend is coming up and when I mentioned it to him he informed me that an old friend from college's wedding was that weekend and that he wanted to go. He isn't in school and doesn't have much idea about what it is like to be in my shoes.
