I remember one time I did just that with a group of friends and someone saying, "Oh you have it so rough. If you can, do it now. There are two ways to go about this. He loves me and would do anything to make me happy. Go for the joy, the experiences, the children to come. If you are dating a Mormon girl, then always wear a good shirt, jeans or pants, and avoid T-shirts with offensive wording or graphics. Should one belief system or lack of one take priority and why. When I was a teen, my first boyfriend was a convert and people would comment on that instead of how nice he was to me.
And I never found that "good Mormon girl". I am a happily married mono-faith guy who has no testimony of dusted base boards. Or the links, in that first vision one. I am also going thru the same thing. But I also know that He loves us so much that He would never take away our ability to choose for ourselves. Are days like this going to be normal.
They nicely include all the pictures we grew up with on how the book was translated and admit that isn't how it happened. But what does it really mean to be a patriarch, to lead your tribe. Do what feels right. I'll keep digging through it, but there's a lot there and I'd like some suggestions to narrow my search. I can't complain about the first 24yrs. Most of all it's lonely. 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.
When the weather is nice outside, I crave for a walk with my husband, but have to tell myself he is busy saving lives. He may never want anything to do with Mormons or the church again. But my relationship with him is worth this small sacrifice.
