I explained to her that from my perspective, if a religious person does something good, you can't trust them because they're doing it for the wrong reasons: When an atheist does something good, you know they're not doing it for any reason other than to help someone else. In my home ward, the non-member son of one of the members of the Bishopbric was able to stand up with the Priesthood and hold his baby girl while they gave her baby blessing. Love is what we do, not what we feel. She hasn't submitted the paperwork yet but I have no doubt that she will do this eventually. Forty plus years later I met my incredibly wonderful fabulous Mormon husband. And you seem like a good person. Do you believe in the Gospel as taught by the Church.
Most couples who are married where one is a Mormon and the other isn't, usually stems from a situation where they both were married in the temple, then one of them lost their faith sometime after that. You are brave and good people and seem to be raising wonderful children who will be lights for everyone with whom they come in contact. The Church encourages you to use dating as an opportunity to show your respect not just for others, but for yourself. I get looking ahead, but it seems like you are very unhappy with the way things are now. For instance, you probably want your children to be baptized into the Mormon faith when they are eight в is your fiancee okay with that. Take the crazy and add a ton of even crazier shit on on top and Your girlfriend literally believes in a book of scripture that was produced from a rock in Josephs Hat. I am a fierce supporter of him and of his profession but at high cost to my own individuality. It MAY be true that she will not marry him unless he converts. Why is it up to the wife or girlfriend to make it work and face being lonely forever. But the issue of marrying a non-member raises two fundamental problems: That idea seems so contrary to the nature of God.
Someday she may really regret everything, and miss you like crazy. She won't look at anything "anti-mormon" but if it's on LDS. Anyway, before you marry you should work out anything hypothetical that might come up in the future. You are the woman of valor eshet khayil sung about by Solomon in Proverbs 31 http: Good for you, good for your husband, and definitely good for your childen.

If you do believe it fully, are you not really going to want him to make the conversion ultimately. Now for the family part We are different people in one big way, I am very extroverted and say whatever's on my mind and he's introverted and everything is very thought out and he likes alone time.
Eventually it turned into a sour argument. Through this, if you run into unforeseen issues like sold out movies or you cannot get a seat at a restaurant, you will always have a backup plan. I let her know it's not healthy to expect someone else to change - we can only control ourselves and not others. Here is hoping I manage to land myself one of them and preferably a single one!!. Be open to the wisdom the Spirit will share. If she doesn't care that you aren't a member now, if your relationship goes on long enough, she is going to care eventually.
