Not his wife and kids. That is why there are home teachers, friends, family members, neighborsвto provide priesthood blessings. While you will be of the right age to date, the Church discourages you from trying to date someone while on your mission trip. He says he hasn't loved me for the last 2 years and was only staying for the sake of the kids. She has to come to the realization that the church may not be infallible, it can't be forced on her or proven to her. In the long run, being married to a nonmember has made me a better person. Ok, so what concerns do you have about the biggest difference of allвwhen your child brings home a potential mate of a completely different gender.
You may look on here and see all of us, but a lot of us got out much much older. Just know that she has been indoctrinated to believe that she wont reach the highest level of heaven if she isn't married in a Mormon temple to another Mormon. It's simply sometimes hard to accept that while he is your number one priority, you probably never will be. It'll reinforce the wisdom of running from this disaster in the making. But our marriage is strong, and our children are good people. Is your spouse willing to give you up on Sundays, and half your weeknights.
About two years into our marriage, I got sick of waiting in bed for him to come read scriptures with me. There is NO guarantee that marrying a returned missionary RM in the temple equates with love and happiness. My wife chose me, but most people aren't so lucky. I think one has to become somewhat vulnerable and broken to truly experience the best side of happy- and he will not, and can not allow that to happen. There are many great and wonderful people in the church, and the real evil about the church is that it harms those great and wonderful people. I also definitely don't want her raising my future children, though, and I'll be very clear about that. My doctor husband also has a daughter from a previous marriage who he travels to see every other weekend. Religious affiliation is not the only criteria when selecting a spouse. Is your spouse willing to give you up on Sundays, and half your weeknights.
Yes, those of us in the hospital work longer and harder days than most people with 9 to 5s, but we still have off days. Maybe it won't be a big deal. You should be fine as long as you stick to the lines you have laid out. I mean, there was no way it could be worse than intern year. It's why TBMs are so bugged by people that leave the church. You'll have to get use to the running late, the tire man, weeks without communication, dinner alone, and unanswered texts and phone calls. How do I help sustain and grow our communication under the circumstance. She won't marry you.
