Wow, so nice to know others feel just like me. It is tempting for Mormon girls to become lazy because they have such a high standard compared to typical girls. And as many posters stated, it is something that needs to be seriously discussed with your potential partner. I haven't read every post like you probably havebut I've read a lot of them. And if it's notyou need to find someone in a different field. It's been tough to always move and find a new job, friends etc I agree a support system is needed. I feel pretty awful about that whole thing. 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. I'm sorry you may be hearing a lot of negativity from us.
YOUR prayers are just as efficacious as a priesthood holders are. Women do not get to hold the priesthood and function in an equal role with men. I think there's a chance you two can find a way to agree on a lifestyle and values. I'm afraid he's going to be more in love with work than me and a family. You are commenting using your Twitter account. He has no vices, is the happiest person I know, is a healthy role model of manhood for my teen daughter and loves me to the depth of his soul. Also don't ask questions that are too intrusive, or those that you would not like to answer yourself. I remember when I had my first son via C-section, our families came to the hospital with Champagne and celebrated, not even one asked about my surgery…. He's in his second year of residency and we're talking about me leaving everything to get engaged and move up with him.
I learned that going out and having fun with friends every single weekend was not going to be part of our lifestyle together due to time restrictions, tiredness, etc. During "Netflix and chill" the other night, I noticed there was a documentary about mormons. In order for him to survive his residency much less thrive in itthe hospital has to come first, he has to come second, and I come in at third place. This can make it harder for you two to do things together.
Just as secular marriages have problems, so do temple marriages. Because Utah mormons are waayyy different than mormons everywhere else. Mormon children are advised, in their religion, to refrain from dating until they are at least 16 years of age. But can't he send me a text just once a day or every few days to let me know he's thinking of me. This has all put an incredibly strain on our 2-year marriage we have been together for a total of almsot 8 years. There is a difference between commitment and time together. I am more compassionate towards people who I would have stigmatized earlier. In retrospect, I believe I was being led to my current spouse. 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. I knew this bothered me, but it wasn't until I read this section that it hit much how much it bothered me and how alone I feel.
