Most couples who are married where one is a Mormon and the other isn't, usually stems from a situation where they both were married in the temple, then one of them lost their faith sometime after that. I'm sorry you may be hearing a lot of negativity from us. They believe that the body is a temple that needs to be worshiped, and that inner beauty is more important. And of course we have been taughtвby Brigham Young, at leastвthat even when Christ comes during the Millenium there will be those who will not accept him as their Savior even if they accept him as the leader of the world. And ah yes, I have a very strong dislike of all nurses.
If I catch you in the back seat trying to pick her locks, I'm going to send you back to mother in a card board box. I'm married an interventional cardiologist; and I wish I only knew 5 years ago before she started her fellowship what the heck I was signing up for. My husband is more relaxed now - even with 14 hour days - and yes, I am starting to feel like he is "coming back". If someone is going to cheat on you, it has nothing to do with their profession. When she was a kid, Dr. Mormons are very particular about dressing. So marrying a doctor might be ideal for me. Am I resentful - yes!!. Sorry man, but if I knew what I know now I would have cut my losses.
But what I discovered surprised me. I am the same good faithful woman I always was, just on a different path than I ever expected, one full of insights and blessings I never knew could exist. Interfaith marriage is but one variety of the learning experience.
No one, except someone who has been Mormon can understand how deep the hooks are sunk into the Mormon psyche. Mormons have a well-known code of health, called the Word of Wisdom. I see a future with him but I'm not sure whether I can handle it. My family says I should leave him….
