Residents work an insane amount of hours. It's a great idea to know where you stand so that you'll be prepared when this comes up in conversation. I envy all you lonely doctor wives. One red flag I have for Mormon girls is if they drink coffee. I met this girl a while ago and we really hit it off. We just celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary We have 5 children and like so many I feel alone most days. But on the main page of exmormon Reddit on the side bar there is a link to a site with links to all the pages on LDS. I have no family nearby as I am from a different country. Tell her that you want your relationship with her, and her relationship with your children together to be separate from her religion with her god.
Take issues as they arise, rather than throwing away what could be a good experience for you and her based off of what might happen. Now I look at his job and his schedule and his tiredness as a part of both of our lives, rather than something that is just his life that I have to deal with. That question really put things into perspective for me, so thank you. You will buy expensive disability insurance, malpractice insurance, and life insurance to provide a snippet of comfort for the great, unknowable future. And occasionally I have queried the wisdom of that choice. All I can do is Trust in God.
If you like your regular fix of alcohol or nicotine, then dating a Mormon probably isn't a good idea. Don't think your life is going to be all rainbows and great lifestyles. I told her that is noble but she would be selfish to marry and work 80 hour work weeks yet if she does marry I can not see any man who would selflessly give over decades for the sake of his wife's career. And when he's working, you should be able to connect somehow. This is the rule rather than the exception. The Church encourages people to be a good influence on one another, and she will probably expect you to dress well for her. He was home alone on his one day off while I took off with our kids to visit family states away. That said, Mormons have learned to have fun without alcohol and often have to wait until drinkers are well-oiled and loosened up to join in the dopey-ness. Thanks for pointing this stuff out. But his absence in the spiritual side of my life, and that of my mother, was very hard.
The Church encourages people to be a good influence on one another, and she will probably expect you to dress well for her. Certainly not my husband. Over the years, it would have felt increasingly burdensome to accommodate practices that seemed to me like superstition. I find there are less disappointments when I know I am completely on my own. One thing that has helped my husband and I was a marriage class we joke that it was more like marriage therapy when we had only been married two years.
