They must refrain not only from sex, but also passionate kissing or similar physical contact, or any act that arouses such feelings. I know many of you understand how Im feeling and a lot of you have been there for many years already. Did you ask him to drop you off and he refused, or were you hoping he'd think of it himself. Yes; I suppose if each of us believe the other is brainwashed, there's going to be major problems later on. My Buddhist husband likes Mormons and even going to church. It is always a nice idea to plan for your date in advance. This means no swearing, loud talking, or making offensive jokes. I want to do that though with my husband involved, not be married and be like a single mum. It is very painful, considering that we have an 8-year old son. I can't emphasize this strongly enough.
You're walking into a den of crazy, tbm bishop's daughter, I hate to say it but you should really be contemplative about what you're stepping into.

My husband and I have been together since we were year-olds at university trying to figure out where we stood with the faiths we had grown up in.

I also definitely don't want her raising my future children, though, and I'll be very clear about that. I decided not to answer his calls for some time to think. It really has been helpful. Catholics basically married catholics and protestants basically married protestants. Over the years, it would have felt increasingly burdensome to accommodate practices that seemed to me like superstition. If you can love them unconditionally with how they are now, then I say go for it. She may be beautiful, friendly, and sincere.
Pants-to-Church Sunday left me a bit bruised. Anyway, I'm sad and disappointed and I know that it will be my job to keep the marriage together. Play with fire if you don't fear getting burned. Plan a day for them. But she probably is more in love with the idea of you, than with you. Mormons follow the law of Chastity; they believe that the intimate act of lovemaking must be saved for after marriage.
