I maintain my own life and embrace my SO with open arms when I do see him, which comes to about once a week usually dinner after 8: I get up with him at 4 A. Her beliefs are innocous but ultimately a death sentence for this relationship. However, I did not expect my role in marriage to end up what it has become. My wife expects me to understand her situation but whiles I am willing to understand, I wish she would make some effort to etch out some quality time for us when she is not stressed out and grumpy and irritable. But i am struggling to cope with him and his hectic schedule. I've been married to a cardiologist for 30 years.
The "loneliness" is not an issue for me. Without going into too much personal detail, I received a very real, strong prompting that I should marry this girl. If you do attend parties like that, expect her to drink 7-Up and volunteer as the designated driver, and to be completely repulsed if you drink too much. Even though we live together, we barely see each other - when he is working nights, we go several days without seeing each other at all he is usually still at work when I head out in the morning, and gone by the time I get back in the evenings. She sounds so indoctrinated that like even if you try to get her to open up, who knows you might get like a BJ out of it doesn't sound like it but who knowsyou have to realize that a lifetime of conditioning will be set in motion in her mind that will make your life hell. I love how this applies to ALL marriages. That was my experience. Don't think it's just women married to male physicians who suffer.
Mormonism and Non-Mormonism don't link to future lives. You are commenting using your Facebook account. If she identifies as a Mormon, then she probably takes her faith seriously, and it means a lot to her. I would bet this is exactly what she is thinking about you, which is why she is willing to have a relationship with you aren't a Mormon. I recommend that talk.
When I taught GD we discussd the lessons. Thank you so much, L. We agree on honesty and kindness, it doesn't matter what inspires us to pursue that. It takes the right personality and commitment on both sides. I dated non mormon men. I am a non-Mormon who moved to Utah for college. This woman is a human being, not a caricature of a TBM.
