I suppose it depends on your personality. Many Mormons stick to a small group of friends within the church. I would say though that racial differences are NOT like religious differences, certainly not those between Mo and Nomo. Also don't ask questions that are too intrusive, or those that you would not like to answer yourself. What do you occupy your time with. I learned how truly very Mormon I really am, to the deepest part of my soul. Lots of really thorough replies. 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.
I am about to get into a relationship with a doctor. I figured he may still be finding his feet in his residency and as we grow closer, he might start putting in more effort. I am a non Mormon. I got married last year, left a great job, family, friends and city to be with my husband in a very small under developed town. A couple of quick thoughts: December 12, at 9: December 13, at 2: December 13, at 8: December 13, at 4: December 13, at 6: December 14, at 6: December 17, at 7: December 19, at December 19, at 1: December 19, at 4: December 22, at 9: December 27, at 7: Also, be prepared for Mormon jokes. Interestingly, my parents felt the same way about him. I can't complain about the first 24yrs. When missionaries come home, they are like top dog religious people. Hopefully they have some say in it, but I'm speaking about other churchgoers' expectations here, and probably your wife's.
If she says that the mission was the greatest experience and best two years of her life, any chance you have at a normal long-term healthy relationship is dim unless you convert. They want a man who has navigated the stormy seas of the world, who has just a little bit of history, and has overcome the degenerate worldly culture, a man who has discovered for himself where peace and happiness lie. Will people have feelings about your interfaith marriage.
Will you be open to me teaching my children my athiest point of view. If you both comfortable having different faiths, your relationship can still be rewarding and fulfilling. There are many catholic families with these three main ethnic groups within it. I let her know it's not healthy to expect someone else to change - we can only control ourselves and not others. If your date has been an active member of the Church who is following these moral guidelines, then she will not be willing to involve herself in a sexual relationship with you. And unless they are total cretins your ward members will love him too. My husband and I have been together since we were year-olds at university trying to figure out where we stood with the faiths we had grown up in. It's been tough to always move and find a new job, friends etc I agree a support system is needed.
