I am one to really like my space and opportunity to do my own thing and little projects. I have known many women who have married non-members and are happy. I wanted to be able to fully share my faith with my spouse, but this expectation was now up in the air. You don't have to believe them yourself, but you need that respect in thought as well as action, and you need to frame this as your own journey because you can only change yourself. I am 27, LDS, and 5 days away from marrying my own amazing non-Mormon man.
There is no such thing as a perfect Mormon family- regardless of whether the parents are sealed or not. We all know people who know that the gospel is true but they will not accept it. It does not come from common religion or personality or even values; it only comes through mutual self transcendence. I have no kids with him I had one from a marriage before and I'm glad I have no kids with him now.
When my husband and I were sealed, I finally understood why my Dad had been stressing this to me my entire life. It's a foolish dream I suppose. I do not contact my gf every day unless they are online. He also doesn't let me sleep in and stay there when he leaves for work.
No complaints whatsoever though GF or BF and spouses of physicians quickly understand that medicine isn't a profession Many times you will be second. I'm not going to hit the town with single ladies and couples find it awkward just inviting you over.

It is amazing how different values and outlooks, interpersonal relationships can be from family to family.
