I have a better and fuller relationship with God because my own practice has been supplemented by additional observance. It was actually causing more of a rift than bringing us together. Did you know Joseph smith married the wives of other living men. I knew I was going to be alone much of the time and for the most part I can handle it. God be with you all. Find things that will make good memories in years to come. Make up stories about being a soldier at war or a sailor at sea keeping me away from my love.
