Their thinking is something like this. She is showing a common attitude of distrust for "anti-mormon" material. We also had to move several times now and will move few more times. It can't be antiMormon. Pretty alarming how unsophisticated so many presumably well-educated people's expectations are of marriage. I really felt overwhelmed with the loneliness and no support. Sometimes I seat and think how we can make this work when both of us have career aspirations I am trying to find a tenure-track position close to my husband this year, and I just keep my fingers crossed that I can do that. Also, I want to be fully supportive of his dreams and what he wants to become. As a non-Mormon male widower Catholic contemplating marrying a devout temple recommended widow, I thank you all for the wonderful blog. And I'll disagree with the other person who responded to your comment.
Now Knowing your husband is surrounded by good looking women, makes you pray for them even harder. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. I wouldn't purposefully subject my daughters to that BS. What do you think is a reasonable expectation for how much time you will spend together, how often you will talk, etc. This has been a good distraction when she's doing awkward shifts but coordinating time together can be difficult. It doesn't get better. The thing is, even though no one else trusted my decision, I prayed about it daily for our entire relationship. His whole family joined after he did. She was a mormon and he finally joined the church at For 40 years there was a disconnect and she really viewed him as a lesser person cause he wasn't a member. Needless to say, my life is a little bit crazy.
We strive to improve each other. I do feel some of the pressure lifting off me in that I can start doing things for myself. He was gone by 6: I was left to manage the house, the finances, the kids' schedules and what little time was left over for my own interests. Is it wrong not to. Is the answer really just communication and uninterrupted alone time. With minimal support on my side and going against everything I had grown up learning, I had to trust my relationship with God. It should be our time with boys. And there is NO taking them off to wear a sleeveless shirt, cute sun dress or regular, girl-length shorts in the summer. Until you can believe someone else's beliefs are reasonable, you will not be able to treat them with the respect they deserve. If so that's a good sign.
God Bless you and all the other doctors' wives that have transparently shared their experiences on your page. My experience with non members has been so much more meaningful and caring. You'll know pretty quick where she stands.
