When I do open up to one or two close female family member, they often tell me that their husbands are equally unavailable and I should not complaint. She converts to your religion. She is a returned missionary, and won't Marry you if you want to stay atheist. For now, again, don't expect a decade long relationship. The big one is that under Mormon theology both of you must be believing, fully active members to live together in the afterlife. This can also be the basis for forming important friendships, and learning proper skills for social interaction.
The weekends that we spend together are non stop we are always doing something or going to see friends People in general don't understand how much money it actually takes to just be a doctor. Life is too short. You should take your cues from your partner, not from documentaries or this sub, on whether your partner's views and actions are manipulative, brainwashy and damaging. If it's the former I'm more inclined to think he's being self-centered in your relationship. To sum up, they're incapable of loving anyone but themselves and the thought of a marriage counselor freaks them out as this would mean confronting their ultimate excuse of "I'm too busy".

She might be everything you want, but in her eyes you are not what she has been dreaming of her whole life. Is it wrong to make those types of sacrifices. The issue is that we have really spectacular sex that will often last for hours including foreplay haha, not all PIV, thank God. There are many professions that leave the spouse carrying the bulk of every day family life. If this is his first year, I believe he has at least two more years, possibly as many as four or five. If you want to go against that trend, one of you will almost certainly change perspective. Otherwise her family will likely feel incomplete to her.
We seem to be one two different planets communication in two different languages. If you aren't sealed together, say good-bye for eternity. It is an act of faith. All these are reasons to have some serious discussions. There's this fantasy perpetuated in the religion that if you're good and pure enough, that any man you meet would eventually see the truth and join the church for you. Yes, worse than intern year. With that same attitude they will rise up on the other side of the veil.
