But it is the path we have to go through to get to that point that really scares me. She will not marry you until you convert to mormonism whole cloth. I love my non-member husband of nearly 20 years. They will teach the boys that masturbation is evil, which will cause most boys to lie about it and feel deep shame and guilt. I also definitely don't want her raising my future children, though, and I'll be very clear about that. A Mormon wife will also want to bring the kids along, and that should be discussed and decided before marriage and before kids.
Mormons think when you die, based on if you were a good person cough cough atheists you go to spirit "paradise" where they will teach you the gospel. If all the Mormons truly were the pricks we often claim them to be, then Mormonism would be the perfect punishment for them. If you end up marrying a true believing Mormon, your marriage will be a threesome. The church can be a very cruel place for single people. This can be done. I married a person, not a religion. I can only say that I was that girl, 10 years ago.
It has worked and my children are very protective of their father. Her beliefs are innocous but ultimately a death sentence for this relationship. IMO he should've been up-front about that before beginning to date you, but, sounds like you're okay with it now that everything's clear. Mormons defintely play by a different rule set.
They will teach the boys that masturbation is evil, which will cause most boys to lie about it and feel deep shame and guilt. Many men have begun leaving the Church in their early twenties as the mission has become more important. We DO live paycheck to paycheck. After moving in with him it has become painfully obvious I have a lot of personal improvements to make to meet his minimum expectations as a wife and mother. I have to say that I am a lucky woman. She might want to follow the 'virgin until marriage' part, or she may personally decide to forego following that in secret. And I don't have issues with her, hell, haven't even seen her in over 20 years, but the experience with the whole Mormon thing gave me better insight in to many things in life.
