I've learned that when I need attention, it's best to ask for it rather than wasting time acting sad or frustrated. The kids are so involved and I am busy with them but I long for my husband to work less. Play with fire if you don't fear getting burned. I volunteer every week, I put others before myself, etc.
I tried my best, every bit of me…. I also expected that my spouse would be temple worthy and that I would get married in the temple, which was not the case. A lot of people are religious. The dots are extremely close for every LDS person, its just extremely hard to connect them. Maybe it won't be a big deal. He should tell her that he will never convert, and that if she will not be happy unless he does, the relationship should end. I know from my own experience that God has the answers and that He speaks to those individuals who humbly seek Him.
Thanks for letting us know. Reading all your comments makes me feel sometimes uplifted, other times scared as hell. I mostly attribute this to lack of sleep, but I also think he is treated better as a fellow -- by everyone. He will eventually have more time for you, but right now he is likely giving you all the time that he can, even though it is very little. If we truly love someone, we have to make sacrifices.
If it seems one is unable to find a spouse within the church, which commandment do you keep. So while I believe that, in fact, non-celestial families still can be together forever, I also think that there must be great merit to qualifying for the whole Enchiladaвwhich I perhaps cannot fully appreciate at this time. It does kick your butt!. The thing is I didn't want to marry someone who I'd never see or spend time with. Send them to beautiful places and request photos of specific statues. Her experience may or may not be typical, but it is something to consider. I would never convert. Good luck to you and your family with the rest of fellowship. You should both sit down and have a serious conversation about what you want and what she wants and if you can both deal with the compromise.
