Since her father is a bishop, I'm sure he'll want to have his daughter marry a temple worthy person. It can burn, and it can burn you hardcore. Marriage to the right person is wonderful. Yes have moved away from family at 7 months pregnant to knowing no-one and starting from scratch and having no support network especially from husband who couldn't wait to get away and had the cheek to say he dreaded coming home some nights, poor him, I dreaded being home most days.
I don't mind staying home because I understand he's tired. If you are dating a Mormon man or woman, be genuinely interested in their religion. The day could come where she has to decide between her relationship with you and her church. I intend to spend some quality time in the temple, with my bishop, and with close family and friends as I think and pray my way through this decision, but I would also value your insights into this.
Wow i am in the exact same position. It wouldn't be as often as from someone with an ordinary job and schedule, but it would happen. Its always for his prior commitment that we always end up cancelling our plan of being together. Mormon girls are the best, and you are pretty lucky. December 18, Please tell me you're not in NC, dagny. My parents met when my mom was in 8th grade and married when she was I think my sister married fastest and knew her husband at least 18 months, dating for at least half that. But I'm trying to determine how much of that behavior is truly down to his profession, and how much of it is him not being very into me or just selfish and unwilling to compromise even if that selfishness is a byproduct of his residency, and not how he would be in other circumstances. This isn't what life is about. Do you have any specific suggestions for discussion about content on LDS.
The importance of modesty. My dad was in the bishopric for most of my childhood, and I was never the person you describe here. It is a tradeoff at best. But my relationship with him is worth this small sacrifice. To her, if you don't marry in the temple, she will probably do it after you die anyway. He was lonely, as was she. My mother now uses her time in saving stray dogs and helping the poor while my father is away which is everyday. You would think surrounded by kids and being off every day would not be lonely but never having anyone to share your kids achievements with in person is hard. Doesn't leave many options here though but better than constantly having them push the church on you until you either give in and convert or break up.
