As more and more people marry out of their faith, the subject of interfaith marriage will become more and more important. I've told her that but maybe she doesn't believe me. I have many friends and members of my family who married within the church and later divorced. Or when I get up at 5: So far I have not brought up any of this with him because I'm trying to offer all of that support and space you mentioned and I wanted to give him the chance to do it himself. I volunteer every week, I put others before myself, etc.
I don't want to come off as needy or clingy but I've also never dated someone in the medical field before. Well, you know what you're not going to get into before marriage So fuck that relationship. December 17, I figured it might be fun to update you kind folks on what happened. I feel I have given a lot of myself and in the process have lost myself and my identity. If it is even possible, would it strengthen or weaken their ability to develop a personal relationship with their Heavenly Father. A year would have been just fine. I want so much to be supportive, but since my family is gone, I find myself afraid that I will come off as needy if I ask for attention or more affection.
Response to your edit: Do NOT bring up or mention anything that could be considered "anti Mormon. By all means, I encourage you to try having those discussions and to make a mental note of when you would choose to walk away instead. I wouldnt encourage my kids to date a mormon. It seems she'll expect you to become Mormon. I'll keep digging through it, but there's a lot there and I'd like some suggestions to narrow my search. My daughter thinks it's funny that she's known her SO 4 years - not ready for marriage. It seems to me like you are walking into a relationship where there is a significant disconnect from the start. My husband is an amazing human being and an international cardiologist. The fact that she is dating an atheist non-Mormon shows pretty serious lack of conformity already. You just don't want the kids to realize how much you resent him.
I'm really glad to hear a few of you have stories of happy interfaith relationships, or leaving the church together, so there's always a chance. It's scary to feel like you might never measure up to someone's expectations you love. As a man who married a non-Mormon woman, my story has a slightly different view point, but it comes down to essentially the same principles. Many Mormons stick to a small group of friends within the church. I had many extremely hurtful things said to me, along with an intervention hosted by my married-in-the-temple-and-divorced grandmother.
