Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep Dreaming about the things that we could be But, baby, I've been, I've been praying hard Said, no more counting dollars, we'll be counting stars. I see this life like a swinging vine Swing my heart across the line And my face is flashing signs Seek it out and ye shall find. Old, but I'm not that old Young, but I'm not that bold And I don't think the world is sold On just doing what we're told. I feel something so, but right doing the wrong thing And I feel something so wrong, but doing the right thing I could lie, could lie, could lie Everything that kills me makes me feel alive. Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep Dreaming about the things that we could be But, baby, I've been, I've been praying hard Said, no more counting dollars, we'll be, we'll be counting stars. I feel the love, and I feel it burn Down this river, every turn Hope is a four-letter word Make that money, watch it burn. And I feel something so wrong, but doing the right thing I could lie, could lie, could lie Everything that drowns me makes me wanna fly. Take that money, watch it burn Sink in the river the lessons I've learned Take that money, watch it burn Sink in the river the lessons I've learned.

Good luck to both of you on working this out, and if you decide that interfaith marriage is something you can handle and your gentlemen turn out to be the right men for you, then welcome to the club. He is always on call, too stressed, too tired etc etc. Willl he build resentment at the struggle to get him to change whether real or imagined.
On her mind, her eternal salvation depends on marrying a worthy priesthood holder. Good to see that I'm not alone. Usually, when Mormon girls marry non-Mormon men, these women forsake their religion and revert to ordinary American woman. Read our Exit Stories from Mormonism. However, I'm going to show him your post tonight and hopefully he will agree that it's worth a try. The woman's role is to grow up, marry a worthy priesthood holder, and have a lot of kids. That being sais, just be honest.
