Being married to a doctor is no walk in the park. For me this has been an opportunity to increase my love, tolerance, compassion and acceptance. I would bet this is exactly what she is thinking about you, which is why she is willing to have a relationship with you aren't a Mormon. I'd suggest taking issue with things that specifically bug you the most. Do you think I need to have some sort of commitment from him before I can make that decision. In my view, baptism at 8 is just a variation on infant baptism. She is passionate about it. These garments will not be fun for dating, if you know what I mean. If He can answer prayers to help you find missing car keys, He surely can help you understand who it is that you should marry. Many, many lapsed Mormons catch the true vision of the gospel at some time in their lives and desire to repent and become observant again.
I used to be religious when I was a kid. Are the sacrifices you make for your partner worth it, and do you have any tips for making it work.

I guess if u believe an angel with a sword really did force Joseph Smith to marry those girls. Thanks so much for all the time you've put into your replies. Actually, Mormon families are shrinking, just like those outside the Church, but they will always be larger than families outside Mormondom. Same goes for holidays-flip a coin.
This is because if your relationship gets serious and you guys get married, then she may have to forgo many of the customs of her religion. She will try to convert you. With so much pervasive degeneracy in the media, Mormon parents think they are safe showing their kids Disney movies. I'm on the same page as you. Disney gives them the fantasy where they can easily achieve a standard of perfection with low risk. Now those are not the problems in my head anymore, whats in my head is how arewe goin to deal with this, ive told her sometimes u wont have anytime for me nor for your kids if we decide to have kids you wont be at the holidays nothing like that and she is always tryin to see everything positive and tells me dont worry ill schedule myself, and im like baby you will not be able to schedule urself your life would be in a hospital.
Jesus might have seemed like a cute, imaginary playmate at first, but on some level I would have been expecting to help her get over it. Intimacy is pretty much gone. I have rediscovered what I love about the church but choose not to attend or participate. I'm pretty disturbed by the level of dismissiveness seen in many of the comments here. No one knows your situation the way you do. If she identifies as a Mormon, then she probably takes her faith seriously, and it means a lot to her. She was fine marrying in an LDS church instead of the temple, didn't want to convert me, and most importantly didn't try to change my beliefs or opinions. Or the links, in that first vision one. All that matters to her is things are how they are because god wants them that way. I do not understand what makes these nurses think that they have a place in his life.
