I am exhausted from giving so much of me and I never got much back. Some of the most wonderful lesbian sex I've ever had was with a TBM girl. And once you are done with those, ask about social issues and where she stands. I'm on the same page as you. I say, Follow your heart. That my heavenly father hates my decision to marry my husband. I ran across your post out of desperation. Your crush will watch you closely to see how you interact with these little ones.
I am a non-Mormon woman married to a Mormon manвwhich seems to be a less common scenario in the LDS world. But please also know that the people who love you are hoping you make the right decision because they want you to be happy. If you go yourself, you'll see - those people are good people. I don't care about the money, I have suggested him to downsize if needed for him to work less. It will definitely take patience to work through any of this with her but it sounds like she's a pretty awesome person. We have all felt it and our house seems absolutely different. That will most likely be the deal breaker for her. Even after that, the Church discourages youth from entering serious relationships before they are considering marriage. What if she absolutely despises sex.
It would likely be seen as a trial in her life. I am so in need of a support group.

The thing is, even though no one else trusted my decision, I prayed about it daily for our entire relationship. Men search the world for women that they can stand to be around with long-term. I'm the wife of an intern and we try to make a night each week to go do something, just the two of us. So when our children bring home a potential mate that has cultural, racial, religious or other big differences then our child, our concerns immediately flare up. Yet, this life is hard on the whole family.
I think Bob, the answer can be found in your comment. She'll be hoping that you're going to convert and if neither is happy with the other being as they are, you'll find yourself divorced shortly down the road. I still feel enriched by the contrasts, but in the important things, we have largely come together. You should take your cues from your partner, not from documentaries or this sub, on whether your partner's views and actions are manipulative, brainwashy and damaging. Their son grew up to become a temple president. Most of us were suckled on that teat too. Only you will know. Weirdly, one of the best sexes I ever had was with a lesbian who felt remorse and as though she had betrayed her fellow lesbians. I am literally too lazy to get up and get the computer.
