While dating is a good time to get to know someone, if you are young it is better to go on group dates. When missionaries come home, they are like top dog religious people. I knew a guy who joined the Mormon church because he thought it would help him date a certain Mormon girl, a girl who refused to date non-Mormons. I don't really care if she's religious or not, unless she brings it up all the time or tries to convert me. At what age do you baptize. 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. How is that gonna work. As an atheist with Buddhist undertones who married a non-practicing, god-believing Mormon at the height of his questioning, I find this so interesting to me. And he needs to trust his instincts if he thinks she's being dishonest.
Mormon's view marriages outside the temple to be counterfeit and you can't get into the temple without converting to the religion. I want to do that though with my husband involved, not be married and be like a single mum. I like to think that what you said really resonated with her. If you remain active, Church service is very demanding of our lives в not a Sunday thing. And some will do that.
He was patient and supportive, promising to continue acting like a TBM for as long as I wanted our baby is 4, so that likely would have been at least 14 years. I grew up in a very strict Mormon home and dated only Mormon men until I met my now husband. There will be sacrifices but I am hopeful. If someone isn't dying then it is unlikely to be important. He told me that the ER doesn't share and I'm pretty much the mistress to the hospital. Anonymous, you are right. And I learned how freeing that is.
There are plenty of marriages between Mormons and non-Mormons. She likely hasn't had many long-term relationships and has no idea what dynamics are involved in one. Consider a mix of activities that are inexpensive, and allow you to talk and learn about one another. There is no way out, either I need to continue to sacrifice myself or get out of this relationship.
