Hi Op, I wouldn't worry about the lack of constant contact too much. As a non-Mormon male widower Catholic contemplating marrying a devout temple recommended widow, I thank you all for the wonderful blog. She wants the eternal temple marriage and you will be her long term project TL;DR I considered ending my marriage of Save yourself pain by getting out before it gets harder. I respect what my husband does but I have nothing but my pets and a dusty Ivy Leaguedegree. She will want her kids blessed, baptized, taking temple trips to baptize for the dead, hold the priesthood, a bishop will ask you sons and daughters if they masterbate and punish them if they do, etc. She will probably feel persecuted and attacked if you try.
I just don't want to jump to conclusions and am trying to prepare myself for a new normal. For the official Church websites, please visit LDS. 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. I was an ordinary doctor until I found Medscape.
As you can see Also, the fact that she served a mission is evidence of her dedication to the religion. Its always been I who is being tested for patience,loyalty and trusting and trying to adjust with his unpredictable time schedule. Don't fall in love with a doctor. Like it was mentioned above, see how she deals some of the issues now and if she can't handle it, it might be better to find someone else. Not all of us are able to achieve that ideal but we are to strive for it. After my divorce I dated Mormon men в disastrous. My husband has gone from proselytizing and thinking he knows it all to a real spiritual seeker, albeit with a strong testimony in the church.
I am married to a DH and what helps me the most is knowing my whole life revolves around him and medicine always come first. Not one little bit. Certainly there are such people in the church, but there are such people in any organization, and I would challenge you to remember that the members are also individuals with thoughts, feelings and the ability to rebel in their own ways. Somewhere down the road, you will find another girl who will be a much better match for you. The weekends that we spend together are non stop we are always doing something or going to see friends People in general don't understand how much money it actually takes to just be a doctor. Try to have a date night once a week and when your Dr Spouse has time off go somewhere. I'd like to reiterate, though, that sheer physical exhaustion isn't as much of a problem for me as it might be for a med student or a doctor, so he might be deserving of the benefit of doubt if he doesn't keep in touch regularly.
