About ten years ago, I realized I needed to quit qualifying my excellent husband who is a better man than many Mormon men I knowI realized I needed to raise my kids to think of him as completely equal to the men they knew at church. Talk about issues with Jehovah's Witnesses etc. Become a Redditor and subscribe to one of thousands of communities. There is still a chance you can work out your differences, but it will require major concessions on both sides. I am as ambitious as he and he supports that. I'm glad you both have found a way to get past the incredible forces that are working against you. I just don't want to jump to conclusions and am trying to prepare myself for a new normal. Be thankful that you chose a man with passion and drive; realizing that his energies will not always focused on you.
At least not until they're I reserve the right to refute any teaching that I see as harmful. Make them feel special. Sorry that you went through that. At least people of different races are aware of those differences, and are on alert to deal with them. But of course this does not mean that mixed religion children cannot grow up to be LDS stalwarts.

I agree with Rachel- this is not what I signed up for. I was thinking about this last night after listening to Radio West. Mark an envelope to be opened at different times throughout the day.

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. My advice is, as others have said, have no expectations, expect that you will spend the majority of holidays, birthdays, family gatherings, valentines day, anniversaries alone or with other family or friends. That was hard on my relationship and I had to give up on my dream of being a computer programmer. Love the man you are going to marry- warts and all he loves yours as well. If she can't put you before her religion then you need to walk away. Should either of you sisters raise your children and wonder what faith will they choose.
I love my husband with my whole soul. I believe that we are all on different paths, but that it is possible for us to travel on different paths side-by-side. I am not sorry I married outside the LDS faith. What if she absolutely despises sex. I am engaged to marry a surgeon next fall. We'll discuss further after the holiday and see where we end up. A few years, maybe.
