Well, sometimes they cant. If you feel peaceful with your decision and you feel it is right that should be helpful. I had been teetering on the fringes for quite a long time, mostly coming to Church but not really being present, because I felt like an outcast as an older single. She sacrificed two years of her life to convert people to the religion. I would say though that racial differences are NOT like religious differences, certainly not those between Mo and Nomo. I think you should start by having some very honest conversations. I am so glad I found this blog.
He sees around 50 patients a day and is always tired when gets home n wants peace and quiet. It's not fair to put words in her mouth and thoughts in her brain like this. He is doing 2nd year Residency. He never has time for me. Now that my boyfriend and I are beginning to talk about a future together, though, I realize that I need to consider this question of marrying outside of the church very carefully.
Yeah man, don't doubt someone who was a missionary will try to convert you. Mormons are one of the few remaining groups with healthy women. If you are all sealed together, you will be together forever in the Celestial Kingdom. Probably, not Mount Meadows level, but be prepared to have to apologize on her behalf a lot. I, too, am the wife of a doctor dermatology resident.
I wouldn't purposefully subject my daughters to that BS. My husband had quite a late start in his career; he will be almost 40 by the time he starts residency so I feel we are already way behind in that sense, but also he has had a very hard time getting into residency as he went to med school outside the US. Eventually I started feeling the way that you do, though. The long antisocial hours often leave me feeling lonely, and when he is home he is so tired. 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. He was gone by 6: I was left to manage the house, the finances, the kids' schedules and what little time was left over for my own interests. Glad I found this post. Hell we haven't even gone in a date yet. I mean, I get where it comes from but it's so ridiculous.
