How will your spouse feel about that in 20 years. They will teach the boys that masturbation is evil, which will cause most boys to lie about it and feel deep shame and guilt. Their son grew up to become a temple president. Life is a journey and going through it with a true partner, and a mutual respect for curiosity, is so far greatly rewarding. These are nice people. 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". But at the hospital, I'm helping the other guy who was injured when his car wrecked six hours ago, and I can't just bail. I have been married to a doc for 31 years and just found out about an "emotional affair" that went on for 15 years she is a nurse. When you try to explain to them why the church would not publish said info on their own website they get mad at you and tell you you're ignorant. Oh this is a great set of questions.
For me, one of those bouncers is my marriage to the most wonderful woman alive. The church didn't do it to her but it helped create the environment that allowed it to happen. This is the type of doctrine that Joseph rejected and so have the leaders of the church. You might want to determine your level of willingness to put up with his demanding work schedule and to communicate with him about your needs and concerns. Given the high divorce rate in this particular specialty, it might have helped him if there were people in the environment who questioned his behavior or at the very least, registered some sort of disapproval. Let me say this so you can get an idea of just how crazy and how much your girl friend is into the Mormon religion: These are known as "garments". They don't get easier, the demands of the hospital and patients will always come first. He ended up cheating with one of the nurses and his wife left him. He will have to wait outside if his children marry in the temple. I have learned this painfully with my child growing up in the LDS community.
We have not been intimate in 6 weeks now. Did everything in my power to support him, whether it be financial, emotional, etc. I keep busy with my own activities, but it becomes really hard to have a date night. He is on call ALL the time, he arrives home 9 pm and barely sit down for diner and then gets called away, then again 2 am heart attack. I could imagine all these nurses throw theirselves at him regardless he being in a relationship with me. It is not the norm. Its always for his prior commitment that we always end up cancelling our plan of being together. If so, you have a chance. You aren't engaged or married or anything, you can't just know that she won't see the light and remain crazy Mormon forever. If you can genuinely deconvert her then cool.
Many Mormons stick to a small group of friends within the church. Her experience may or may not be typical, but it is something to consider. It is not the norm.
