And I don't have issues with her, hell, haven't even seen her in over 20 years, but the experience with the whole Mormon thing gave me better insight in to many things in life. We have been married a mere 3. She can only get sealed to him in a Mormon temple. You need to do this ceremony first where you end up pledging all your money and property to the church: It's cruel to suggest it. Do some research of your own as well, so that you know a little more about the person you are dating. And no I would not pressure them to convert but as a Latter-day Saint I would pray for them to convert as I do for many people I know and love. She honestly believes that she has the truth, and that if you are exposed to it enough you will recognize that.
If I were you, I would just nope out of it and move on. This does not mean that you cannot do those things, but remember that she will not be able to do them with you. It almost feels like a single parent family. I spent a lot of time on my knees and made several trips to the temple before I felt l could trust that what I knew I wanted to be promptings actually were. 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. Our relationship is not perfect, not easy, but absolutely amazing. It takes him about 20 minutes to get ready. I am getting increasingly more resentful of the times I think he can choose us instead of residency. Hopefully, your ex-boyfriend will realize that your relationship, emotional support, etc.
But from what you said, this girl doesn't sound like she is going to be content to have a marriage for time only. Looking back, I can say that when I received this answer to my prayers, I was at one of the most spiritually high moments of my life. Do you know his work hours, break time during work and where does he take break from work. I'm so sorry to hear this. She still has another year of residency but I am hoping she chooses a specialty that is not as demanding on her time. I have known many women who have married non-members and are happy. As for me, I recall spending a lot of Sundays at sporting events with my dad. If you can only think of alcohol and coffee for a good time, you're very disappointed. A stiff dick has no awareness How's a lifetime of garments and 3 hour meetings sound.
Make sure everyone involved is a couple, or at least is paired with someone. So yea, I blame residency for his general 'unavailability', and I would assume that is the case with your guy too. I'm not saying you shouldn't pursue the relationship, but I'd only recommend marrying her if she leaves the church because she discovers it's not true. I am an extrovert too, I do feel lonely when my husband is not around on weekends or holidays or when I fall sick. Because what are Mormons about. In her mind if you never accept the gospel you are denying her eternal exaltation as a God. No one should feel excluded from the House of the Lord. I do feel frustrated sometimes when spends his limited free time to go out with the guys, but I realize that he needs this release every once in a while. I love him so much, but it's torture spending so much time without him. There are many professions that leave the spouse carrying the bulk of every day family life.
