The woman I have feelings for is conflicted on her religion in regards to me. I can honestly say I wish he stayed were he was it has been a long road. It doesn't get better. It is much easier for the Holy Ghost to influence good people. They don't want to accept that someone can understand the doctrine and choose to reject it. How the Book of Mormon was translated using a sacred rock. I think it might be worth trying. Much better to marry in the faith if possible. Am still very hopeful and in love. We agree on honesty and kindness, it doesn't matter what inspires us to pursue that.
Thank you so much, L. Calls during thanks giving and Christmas makes me really upset. That is the shit storm on the road ahead of you. Is your mind made up and you want justifying support. My family says I should leave him…. Do some research of your own as well, so that you know a little more about the person you are dating. My 16 year old daughter told her Bishop who made that comment, that she thought her dad was great just the way he was. I often feel it's harder than being a single mom because the false hope is just torture. My job starts soon and in January I get started on my masters degree at a new school.

We have to show them we care. Certainly there are such people in the church, but there are such people in any organization, and I would challenge you to remember that the members are also individuals with thoughts, feelings and the ability to rebel in their own ways. It has been very difficult to reconcile our two expectations, hopes and dreams. That was my experience. So, we decide to take a "break" because there was so much tension and resentment in the relationship. They're hidden pretty deep on LDS. Mormonism is a religion that's as manipulative as it is comforting. When you mix cultural groups you increase the difficulty.
You aren't engaged or married or anything, you can't just know that she won't see the light and remain crazy Mormon forever. There are many great and wonderful people in the church, and the real evil about the church is that it harms those great and wonderful people. I expect to give up my career once he finishes his training and we start a family.
Honestly, the thing that makes me the craziest is the missionaries. But we only really get time together in the summer.
