But I don't want to put any more demands on his time, which is why I thought maybe asking for quick phone call on his drive home might help. These exclusions, dictated by doctrine, hold the potential to create wedges between you, both immediately, and in the long term. If so, then step away from the internet and go look him in the eyes and take his hands and start asking him all the questions you asked me. I had no idea how hard it could get. Take issues as they arise, rather than throwing away what could be a good experience for you and her based off of what might happen. This man basically tells you in a simple way within 6 minutes.
She is going to dump you. Good luck and my prayers are with you. My family is pretty awesome in the church. I am so in love with him and he says he is too minus the stupid cheating. Long story short, everyone is dead on. Don't forget too that IF you are successful in turning the lights on and deconverting her, the family would resent you the rest of their lives. If he is luck to be off call during the weekend, I would sleep most of the weekends away to make up the sleep deprivation. Of course, arguments happened because I felt neglected at times step 1 and 2 studying or he left dirty laundry in the bathroom. I get to spend my life with someone who was not raised on fear and guilt and strict gender roles.

If you are worries about her or her family trying to convert you, be honest. Maybe he found a nice Mormon girl after all. Love the man you are going to marry- warts and all he loves yours as well. It can't be antiMormon. Learning from a young age that any religion will do means that your children almost certainly will ultimately believe that any religion will do.
My boyfriend and I moved in together when he started his fellowship last year. There is no way she will may you without you going to the temple. I would not have wanted to be dismissed as crazy and unworthy of attention when I was still a member, because it wouldn't have been true. If you like your regular fix of alcohol or nicotine, then dating a Mormon probably isn't a good idea. I am scared of passing through all this you guys have passed before i even got to this blog i've thought bout it a lot. Life will chuck all sorts of bouncers at you. As Joanne mentioned, should you marry interfaith, you will have lots of help from fellow ward members on converting your spouse. Marriage offers a chance to develop generosity of spirit and a willingness to be improved by the one we love, no matter what faith tradition he or she may claim.
