So if you feel like you both are getting serious, then talk to your girlfriend in time and sort this issue out. I recently left my family, friends and state to move across the country to be with my best friend and boyfriend during his residency. After our child was born, I can say that my resentment of my husband started to grow and overshadow the respect I have for what he does. I would do it all over again and thank my lucky stars that I found this man, that he loves, and that I love him. It's just not worth it to constantly be stressing over this and feeling dissatisfied with the way things are after we've been dating for this long. IE в the comment about not having a husband to give priesthood blessings, etc.
I decided not to answer his calls for some time to think. You I think are ok with that. As someone starting residency next year and whose father and brother went through it, and whose girlfriend is about to start it I have to say that you can't be mad at him for not sacrificing something to spend time with you - there is literally nothing else to sacrifice; residency is called residency because the doctors used to live in the hospitals, and it was akin to monks in monastery. It has hit me that this relationship is a double standard wherein since we are not married yet, he is not obligated to help me, yet he says once I'm done with my boards and match into residency, we will get married. The decisions we have made in how to raise our kids have been our decisions alone. She might not be keeping the Word of Wisdom, living according to the Law of Chastity, or attending church regularly. I don't want to sound like I hate what he does but it's really difficult to be flex parents every time. Sunday is considered sacred by Mormons, and they do not undertake any entertaining or outdoor activities that result in spending, on that day. But marriages don't last if you have to hold back ugly, sarcastic comments when your partner attends religious services or defends religious beliefs.
I dated many LDS guys before him. When mormon married a mormon and failed miserably. The pressure is mounting for Mormon women to cave in to Western degeneracy, and men are at a loss for what to do about it. After med school, after residency, after setting up a practice.
That is why there are home teachers, friends, family members, neighborsвto provide priesthood blessings. Not in endless discussions of temple marriage, not ever. I will keep reading, but it looks like most of the stuff about racism and polygamy has been "adequately" explained away by updates to LDS. But there are many people on here who truly devoutly believed in Mormonism and broke free. Imagine if all the men in the world weighed over pounds and acted like slobs. We still joke about the latter.
