I am a staff nurse and my boyfriend is in his last year in medicine school whos now havong rough tough junior internships. You will be surrounded by single women, many of whom are probably interested in dating and marrying a Mormon, so take advantage. What do you guys do about this-- do you go with your spouse. The first vision is something she taught endlessly as a missionary - same with the Book of Mormon translation. Unless you have some super amazing other dating prospect there isn't a huge reason to cut this relationship off now. Each time, I start to make friends and have to leave them and move. But you will benefit if you can help him maintain his strength. We just moved in together and I am very afraid of his ocd ways and heavy opinions. By that I mean that we ought to consider simply marrying within the faith and in the temple for all the reasons that people have given.
Also, love how you describe how God has our backs and we can actually act on the notion of things hoped for that are not seen instead of the quaint pseudo idea that all things are known in advance, step by step, and lead to mortal and eternal bliss. I have dated all walks of TBM women TBM women are closet freaks. My dad was in the bishopric for most of my childhood, and I was never the person you describe here.
Should I marry him. I am giving him all of those things. Also, I want to be fully supportive of his dreams and what he wants to become. Can he see the good in it, or does he focus on the more controversial aspects. Before I would just take things as they came, internalize them, be miserable about it but not voice my concern in fear of being told that I can't handle his lifestyle. Dress nicely, as the girl will appreciate the effort put into looking good for her, and encourage her to do the same. I also know that whenever exceptions are made, there are reasons. But DON'T become in need of care as a spouse.
I think she sounds great but she won't be able to not bring it up. I have been with him through medical school and residency for internal medicine, which was tough, but manageable. Seclusion has served to preserve their desirable traits, but it also makes it difficult to gain rapport.
