It's the sort of super dismissive "all women are the same" attitude that I learned in church and left to get away from. Earlier I mentioned "Even if the church believes a bunch of crazy nonsense, and she believes it too, I still really like her and would like to see whether we can have some good intellectual conversations about this stuff. That being said, no matter what the cause, I wasn't getting what I needed out of it and I had to make the decision to either keep things the status quo or move on. However, we rarely ever see each other and don't talk that much in between. BYU was once the perfect place to find a great young woman and get married.
I married a non-member over 20 years ago. That sentence strikes me as rather bizarre--it seems to be alluding to a causal link between academics and being "emotionally immature," as you put it. Well, there were other circumstances that made it especially unique and One thing in your favor is the fact that she is in her late 20s by Mormon standards she is already an old maidhopefully she and her family will just want her to have love and not put the pressure on converting you, but there are countless stories of dudes getting dumped on here because ultimately they chose the church. The church can be a very cruel place for single people. I married for companionship but now all I do is wait for him to stop working, to come home, to call me back, to have time, which is hardly ever. Be a good influence. I want to serve a mission in my old age with my husband. I tried to date Mormon women, honestly. And yes, some people are unbelievably stupid about it.
My seminary teacher went off on me about dating a non Mormon when I was talking about going to his prom. This usually works out great. I dated many LDS guys before him. You should expect that this will define your relationship with her. If kids ever came into the picture though, I wouldn't want to be isolated from them psychologically or banned from walking my daughter down the aisle someday. It's in the Mormon DNA. We like each other, but I feel like giving up also at times. Better navigate the business aspects of medicine and stay on top of the changing healthcare landscape. This is really a conversation you need to have with him. I completely relate to all you've written; many of us have come to see Mormonism for what it is, and the severe damage it does to human brains.
I realize that the answers to many of these questions may be different for every family, and that we need to continue to discuss them more as a couple as we continue to think about our future. Since I interpreted remotely via video, I got most of the routine cases: I can interpret those kinds of check ups in my sleep. The LDS Church meets many of the criteria for cult behavior. If you shift his way, be prepared for the social costs of inactivityвplus, if you really believe the doctrine, a crisis of faith.
