At 30, you just give up. I adore the show New Normal and one of my favorite episodes is when Bryan decides to go back to church and the Father is so cool with him. I married a person, not a religion. It is a decision he has to come to on his own - hopefully all sped up when he looks around at his current dating pool and eating way too much McDonalds. I've been thinking more about your situation and another thing came to mind.
Glad I found this post. And also I thought it was weird she wore some kind of pants that come to her knees under her other pants, but I never asked about that. For the first time in my life, at age twenty-seven, I am in a relationship that is good and loving and serious enough that I believe it may lead to marriage. Honestly, unless you want to convert and: And, if she does claim those things don't matter, be prepared to find out how much they really do after you've married her. I've been feeling like a single mother for many years.
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. It's gonna hurt, and it's gonna break her heart, but much less so than waiting until you've both committed to each other and start discussing your future together. No easy answers here. As I grew and became confident, I learned how to deal with social awkwardness. Good luck with her, and good life to you. I married a non-member over 20 years ago. Want to add to the discussion. While we have a good marriage but he has no idea how lonely I am for my him. I really like him, and I think we fit together well with personality, values, and life goals. As a matter of fact, you can begin here.
Thanks for pointing this stuff out. 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. It's a less common occurrence, but it happens. Really, I'm interested in this too. I think patience and understanding is also important. Thirty years ago I converted a guy and then dumped him for a returned missionary from an established LDS family.
