She went to BYU and did a 2 year mission, but since she was a girl she got to have a car instead of a bicycle. We just celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary We have 5 children and like so many I feel alone most days. Females are not expected to serve and MOST of the girls that do, only do so because they do not have a suitable read: If your GF is an attractive girl and still ended up on a mission then she is about as fanatical as they come and if she isn't already she will be slowly trying to convert you. Through this, if you run into unforeseen issues like sold out movies or you cannot get a seat at a restaurant, you will always have a backup plan. Mormon theology is peculiar, yes, but the media frequently takes things out of context and misrepresents the religion. I explained to her that from my perspective, if a religious person does something good, you can't trust them because they're doing it for the wrong reasons: When an atheist does something good, you know they're not doing it for any reason other than to help someone else.

Yeah man, don't doubt someone who was a missionary will try to convert you. Now that I am married, it has become more apparent that his previous comments about not minding if his wife has a career, were not entirely accurate. He has let me be a stay-at-home mother while trying to launch my own business and has offered love and support every step of the way. 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.
He had no idea what he was getting himself into. I wish there was a mother's support network for us all to join and meet up. I recall reading a talk from Elder Nelson in which he indicated that the church teaches general principles and does not spend time teaching exceptions to general principles. Already answered Not a question Bad question Other. Listen to the still small voiceв. We have family prayer every day and read the scriptures occasionally. That of course does not mean all eternal marriages should have been entered into or will succeed.
Like you, I didn't want to stress him out by giving him some sort of ultimatum or demands. Go on your different ways as friends and don't expect your relationship to go anywhere. Ultimately, it comes down to this.
