Because Mormons retain old-fashioned values, Mormon girls are raised in a traditional environment by good fathers. I am also certain that there are callings and opportunities that I would have had, were I married to a faithful LDS woman, that I have missed. My husband is in his last year of residency. I am not married yet, there is some consolation in that. As far as as race and the priesthood, Mormons still believe the priesthood ban was divinely inspired. I am so sorry for the pain you are going through.
So far I have been sad most of the time. I have learned this painfully with my child growing up in the LDS community. Having said that I'm not looking to get married any time soon, so no. The scenario where she refused to watch a possibly 'anti' documentary and wanted to watch church-sanctioned material sounds like a red flag.
Certainly there are such people in the church, but there are such people in any organization, and I would challenge you to remember that the members are also individuals with thoughts, feelings and the ability to rebel in their own ways. I have given up my career to stay with the kids and lonely is most cetainly my new reality. I think a lot of people just yell run whenever this topic comes up and like you I think that's unfair. If you are very much willing to accept and understand all of these, whether you are a Mormon or not, you can expect that it is fun to date a Mormon girl. I was spiritually prepared to receive the answer that I sought. She is a returned missionary, and won't Marry you if you want to stay atheist. In my home ward, the non-member son of one of the members of the Bishopbric was able to stand up with the Priesthood and hold his baby girl while they gave her baby blessing. Today, at my ward sacrament meeting, in the back section of the chapel where I was sitting, all the women except one were Mormon wives in interfaith families.
If you have a literal belief that you need to have a temple marriage to go to the celestial kingdom, you will always keep a secret desire to convert your spouse. I tell her there's no pressure and we'll just see how things play out. I suggest you develop a busy calender so you'll be occupied because you'll get dizzy thinking in circles. I know we don't know each other, but it seems like we all share a commonality that connects us all very deeply. The standard principles of day game apply. But marriages don't last if you have to hold back ugly, sarcastic comments when your partner attends religious services or defends religious beliefs. Mormonism is a big thing for those who follow the faith, so Sundays and the occasional event depending on how much she does extra might distract her. Religion is super important to LDS people but there's also alot of exmormons. But I am very lonely indeed, I have married to a doctor for 5 years, he has been struggling with his career change for years with achieving different fellowships and residency in different countries. I have finally realized that the church is fake and I'm so grateful that I got a second chance with this guy.
