If you stay together l, you are going to have to remind her of that commitment. And how little some men understand the value of a well-dusted baseboard. If so, you have a chance. She is considered "an old maid" by Mormon standards, so she may be willing to marry you--hoping you will convert someday --but she will constantly be reminded that your marriage is inferior to the "Eternal Families" of sealed Mormons, and she will fear dying and never seeing her loved ones again. Basically, these are long-distance relationship tricks. Otherwise you risk having an awkward mix between dating and hanging out, which can be uncomfortable for those involved.

I think the most important thing is to bring up the issues as questions rather than points as why she's wrong.
I also know that my husband's job as a Surgeon is before us my kids and I. Good luck to you and your family with the rest of fellowship. Even though it sounds like she is very Mormon, I feel that this will help her. Hi everyone - like you all, I have been finding it hard dating my boyfriend who is a doctor. I know residency is particularly bad, but what about when he finishes that.
