As my husband learns about Mormonism I get to see it through his fresh eyes. I'll tell her that we are strictly friends for now on. I learned to read by reading the Book of Mormon.
As such, it tends to attract the young and insecure. The first few months were wonderful we saw each other every few weeks, we live about miles from each other. Mormonism is a lot more controlling and has a lot more downsides. Dude just to summarize what I think is the majority of the comments. This is not about either of you individually.
If your spouse believes in infant baptism, will you allow the children to have that. I would never give up on him because he got nobody else. So I knew what I was getting into when I married him though I secretly hoped he would still convert back. Like you I grew up with and taught the standard LDS beliefs about temple marriage, celestial kingdom, etc. And if you can make it to the Tree of Life and still be with your partner, guess what. His superiors will determine when he takes time off. Having seen many examples of the disaster it becomes when a member spouse pushes, coerces, ultimatums the non-member spouse into being baptized, I have very assiduously steered clear of those methods from the start. What advice do you have for a newbie. It would be foolish to acquiesce a Mormon girl to drink coffee. And her husband now is dead and she is left to wonder about their future.
They are just really convinced they are right. He may never want anything to do with Mormons or the church again. Matching caused a lot of drama in our relationship. Thanks so much for all the time you've put into your replies. I was happy to read your blog. No hard feelings, is not his fault, I said yes when he proposed based on the life wee had at that time, my fault for not doing some re search and find out how is really when you are a register or in the training programme. I would not have wanted to be dismissed as crazy and unworthy of attention when I was still a member, because it wouldn't have been true. To me, the core question is, is this person inclined toward self transcendence are the inclined, desirous, self aware enough to be selfless.
