I'm so happy I've found your blog. I am sooooo proud of him but his career has broken me in a way I don't know if I can piece back together. I think in most situations its either you join or she leaves- either you, or the church. Secondly, if he's still in residency, he has to prevail and give it his all. I didn't hear from him all day, is that normal. I can second this, as a lifelong utahn this is why I simply have a "no mormons" policy for dating. She will be oh-so-grateful if you do not pressure her to discard those values. This is how I felt when I married my exmo husband. Take the crazy and add a ton of even crazier shit on on top and Your girlfriend literally believes in a book of scripture that was produced from a rock in Josephs Hat.
This can be a good way to learn more about your personalities. But when my oldest daughter hit 12, the lessons started to have one major theme: This is what girls are told should be their primary goal. If you are worries about her or her family trying to convert you, be honest. Nothing less will do. But I'm trying to determine how much of that behavior is truly down to his profession, and how much of it is him not being very into me or just selfish and unwilling to compromise even if that selfishness is a byproduct of his residency, and not how he would be in other circumstances. Thank you for your blog.
Yes, talk talk talk about everything yoiu can think of, but beyond that I would suggest pre-marital counseling from people knowledgeable in each tradition at play this will probably take two different counselors, who might be faith-based. When my nomo husband does go to church we discuss the talks. My husband and I have a much closer relationship than ever before and I just hope that another blue eyed nurse doesn't come along to distract him. Trust me, though--you will. Do you really want to wait two years to enjoy sex, fun, happiness, intimacy with someone. I would NOT want my daughter or son to marry a doctor.
And that fairly constant theme has some deep implications your girlfriend will have to face. Develop Your Own Curriculum. Yes, do sever the relationship.
