To Anonymous, Your comment also left me heartbroken. It has worked and my children are very protective of their father. While I miss talking to him, I also would prefer the nonverbal stuff sometimes too. In some cases you can just simply live together with differing religions. I wouldn't end a relationship with her, just as I wouldn't deny someone a job, or refuse to socialize with someone who is a Mormon. I can completely relate to all the other doctor' s wives feelings and life experiences. I hope it all works out for you. There are other rewards, like him being available during the week or on odd days when other dads aren't, and knowing that we don't have to struggle financially as many of our friends do in this tough economy.
It broke my shelf, we left as an entire family, and our marriage is better than ever. But, as soon as the marriage happened, the Mormon spouse goes full on Orthodox and expects the non Mormon to comply. In my experience, life-long member, many Mormons have difficulty thinking outside the box, and putting forth effort to inclue and love. JS married a girl her age when he was 37, after having told her that he had been threatened by an angel with a flaming sword and promising her entire family salvation if she consentedI decided to read the ces letter. What can you expect. I know we don't know each other, but it seems like we all share a commonality that connects us all very deeply.
I do get the odd text but now with 3 weeks to his exam, calls are out of the question. I don't think you necessarily need to cut ties with her. Hello, my boyfriend is in his second year of residency for Emergency Medicine, and we live together. I just pray that we can make it through the next 3 years.
I completely agree with you. So if we only have a few hours of time to spend together one night a week, sometimes we will have plans to watch a movie but then things quickly turn into sex and before we know it the night is over. And you will be shocked. Not every LDS person does, unfortunately. Sadly, my ward shuns us. You are too young to deal with this.
