After our child was born, I can say that my resentment of my husband started to grow and overshadow the respect I have for what he does. Too many disappointments, sick nights without your husbands, his absence during family gatherings, my usual OBGYN checkup without him, even simple things of hugging and spending quality time is always remote. Some exceptions and valid reasons do exist for divorce but self righteousness is not on of them. Can I add to this extremely old thread. He also brought up issues with the church when we discussed religion so slowly he brought to light some disturbing facts and even though I would have denied it, it got to me. We married in early 30's. Some day he hopes to make it to Romania and settle down.
There are other ways. Be open-minded; accept that different people have different beliefs, and that they do not always have to match with yours. I would not want my children raised Mormon which she seems intent on. Keep yourself busy and do what you would normally be doing besides sitting around waiting for a guy to call. Anyone who's a decent human being should be able to know right from wrong and act accordingly. I hope that makes sense. They are just really convinced they are right. She won't look at anything "anti-mormon" but if it's on LDS. I know "Meet the Mormons" isn't what I'm looking for I went through a very similar experience earlier this year and the community was extremely helpful.
The brethren have taught that there is an ideal pattern for marriage. It can burn, and it can burn you hardcore. For now, again, don't expect a decade long relationship. Mormons have a well-known code of health, called the Word of Wisdom. That conversation prompted me to find and read through this sub, and there's some seriously disturbing shit here.
She's told me the church is one of the most important things to her, but from what I've researched already there's no way I would subject my future children to this culture. Plan on rolling your eyes A LOT at family get torturers together. And depending on his views of the Sabbath, you will probably get the tug of war on Sundays. Instead, I found someone outside the cult and we've been married almost 32 years She's looking for a dedicated priesthood holder who will take her to the temple. Don't spend money on somebody else' Wife. Masculine attributes attract healthy, beautiful women, no matter where they come from.
