Some Mormon girls succumb to worldly laziness. In the Garden of Eden, Eve may have introduced sin into the world, but ultimately her actions worked out for good because it allowed all of us to be born and tested in this telestial state. How do you maintain a healthy balance with relationships and work when your partner has a more demanding profession than you. I don't mind long hour days but not having a companion during weekends. By Thursday, I'd feel like he disappeared. Immediateley after we got married I realised things were not going to be as I thought. Or am I just being a pushover and need to demand a little more if he wants to keep seeing me. The first time that happened could have been viewed as a warning sticker, and been your cue to exit stage right. His whole family joined after he did.
At what age do you baptize. You aren't engaged or married or anything, you can't just know that she won't see the light and remain crazy Mormon forever. She's too heavily invested in Mormonism for that. I work in a different industry and have worked away from home my fair share. I was definitely taking the "Tough love" approach because I've read countless times on this and other boards, how Mormons claimed that they were cool with their SO not being Mormon, and that they weren't, themselves, orthodox. I'm pretty disturbed by the level of dismissiveness seen in many of the comments here. Let them see the good in you, and believe that their son or daughter has found a good match.
Would you rather give up the prospect of being married in the temple, the assurance of children being raised in the church, and parts of Mormon culture for your boyfriend, or a great man for your beliefs. We decided early on that having only one working parent was critical -- I am always the one that flexes to his schedule like it or notand staying home with our child enables me to do that. No one should feel excluded from the House of the Lord. Much better to marry in the faith if possible. These are also only the American statistics. I also didn't want to push him away by overwhelming him with talks about commitment when he's already stressed. I have had more than one girl, who I had definite chemsitry with, who the girl really liked me and we had deep and intense conversations as well as a real physichal connection to.
And occasionally I have queried the wisdom of that choice. Though they make time for ppl who matter in their life e. She needs to be, and maybe she will get there. We are not judged only for what we do but why we do it. Because people who have problems with interfaith families must needs shortly become a thing of the past.
