You've all been so helpful. My children started a new school this year and up until last week, my husband couldn't have told you what time they started or where to drop them off. She will not marry you until you convert to mormonism whole cloth. I would never change my decision to marry him. You've all been so helpful. A lot of Mormons think that good people will obviously recognize the truthfulness of the church and quickly join. I am a happily married mono-faith guy who has no testimony of dusted base boards. How do you really feel about that. That being said, we have built something beautiful and good, have modeled loving responsibility and accountability to our kids, and I am certain I am with the man God chose for me.
I maintain my own life and embrace my SO with open arms when I do see him, which comes to about once a week usually dinner after 8: I get up with him at 4 A. Never ask vague questions and give her definite options instead. If you are both in high school, she may refuse altogether. You matter, they love you, so please don't ever feel alone-your husbands hearts are right there with you. I would never convert. I do get a little frustrated when I make dinner but he's just too tired to eat with me after working.
But it also means he has ultimate responsibility for his patients, both ethically and legally. Follow the footnotes and you start to find the lies. Because what are Mormons about. You know what the official line of the church is, and what bishops and stake presidents are likely to say.
I too married for love but there's no emotional energy, support or empathy left for the darling wife. I don't think we could have a real conversation about those points either. He is also a bit too neat. Mormons defintely play by a different rule set. Sure it's lonely and hard work being a "single parent". I believe in temple marriage, and in the importance of those covenants.
