I can be part of a church family whether my spouse goes or not. Then a few months later he was not given time off for our daughter's pre-school graduation which was a big deal at the school especially since the school was closing. It's a fair question and you've already been super accommodating. I completely relate to all you've written; many of us have come to see Mormonism for what it is, and the severe damage it does to human brains. Yup, know how that feels. A Mormon will tearfully and emotionally recite whichever lesson they need at the given moment. So I am at my dating prime. Why shouldn't both people be responsible for making it work.
Not all of us are able to achieve that ideal but we are to strive for it. If you do end up having sexual relations, she will feel guilty, and it will affect your relationship, you can count on that. She was masterful at hiding the cuts and bruises with clothing. But I love him. If your heart longs for children, a family and love- why should you stop yourself holding out for some mystical Mormon man to swoop you off your feet.
Two deployments, two years away and I've reached the point where it is honestly easier when he is away. Anyone who's a decent human being should be able to know right from wrong and act accordingly. See to it that she is aware of your plan, so you both can properly dress.
I just started dating this guy and he is not only in the army, but a doctor. At parties, they drink soda and play board games. Hi all, It's really interesting to read all of your experiences and how you've worked through the difficult times. It's a great idea to know where you stand so that you'll be prepared when this comes up in conversation. By those standards, I was a failure, my husband wasn't "good enough" - and my daughter had ambitious real goals that required a lot of time and effort. Why Mormons are not racist. Also, we haven't practiced polygamy for over years. It has been very difficult to reconcile our two expectations, hopes and dreams. It is how she is programmed and it is a fundamental tenant of the religion. So that may be the end of it there.
