In any case; I can assure you from your post that he doesn't sound like he's being selfish; the behavior does sound like its residency related and not selfishness related. And Mormons were basically encouraged to marry other mormons. He has always had a tremendous caseload and often grueling call schedule. They nicely include all the pictures we grew up with on how the book was translated and admit that isn't how it happened. He has spent years building his practice and is a busy, highly successful pediatric surgeon who is compassionate and respected by everybody, but I think by nature, it is hard for him to be empathetic or to relate to more personal issues. That's all she thought about for 18 months, plus the months leading up to it, and winding down. I excused canceling plans, seeing each other only once a week, not being able to text much, etc.
Eventually I started feeling the way that you do, though. 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. I stand by my original statement. Personally I have a rule that I will not enter a relationship with a believing Mormon. Do you believe in the Gospel as taught by the Church. I think love and caring can be more important. She's really attractive, too. Well, you know what you're not going to get into before marriage So fuck that relationship.

Yes, talk talk talk about everything yoiu can think of, but beyond that I would suggest pre-marital counseling from people knowledgeable in each tradition at play this will probably take two different counselors, who might be faith-based. With moonlighting included, my boyfriend sometimes works up to hours per week. I love my husband with my whole soul. She's really attractive, too.
I believe that we are all on different paths, but that it is possible for us to travel on different paths side-by-side. Of course it is impossible Anyways, I am sorry to go on and on. This is wonderful and in accordance with the desires of a loving Father in Heaven, but it can turn a marriage on its ear, if the spouse is unprepared. It would be ludicrous to think otherwise. I have had to compromise more often than I would have liked. 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. And I resent being viewed as just the wife of a doctor rather than my own person with her own accomplishments and aspirations. As you can see Also, the fact that she served a mission is evidence of her dedication to the religion. I am a lawyers wife.
