When I taught GD we discussd the lessons. He is a great man and I know he will always put his family first but this is such a hard decision. And a YW leader feels soory for my daughter who is growing up in a home without the priesthood. He hasn't proposed and instead of saving for a ring he is going to use the money to travel to go to his friend's wedding. This is the rule rather than the exception. Righteous love does conquer all but in some cases it takes a lot longer than we are willing to wait.
This opens opportunities for all strong and successful masculine men to gain access to these women. This spotty attention from him makes me sure I want to end things sometime. What do you occupy your time with. As for deciding to marry someone who is not mormon, here is how I made the decision. But, you will probably lose. If you are not old enough to consider marriage, you should be careful about having a serious, exclusive relationship. And you must be honest in your conversation with God about it. Take your date to a club with loud music and an open bar, or an R-rated or violent movie, and the prospects of it going well are daunting. It also means that you have to give her something particular to do.
After our first kiss she lets me know she won't have sex with me because she's mormon and we'd need to be married first. If you do end up having sexual relations, she will feel guilty, and it will affect your relationship, you can count on that. I think the most important thing is to bring up the issues as questions rather than points as why she's wrong. Go on your different ways as friends and don't expect your relationship to go anywhere. If this is the case, she definitely can be reprogrammed and awakened. I had many extremely hurtful things said to me, along with an intervention hosted by my married-in-the-temple-and-divorced grandmother.
Also, I know a bunch of Mormons that say they are, but don't act like it. He may never want anything to do with Mormons or the church again. Again, reiterating it, don't expect a decade's worth of time with her, but enjoy her good while you two are together. He also doesn't let me sleep in and stay there when he leaves for work. Be open-minded; accept that different people have different beliefs, and that they do not always have to match with yours. We might not always like the way some priesthood holders act, but to disparage the priesthood is not being responsible. My husband started a solo practice and the last few years have been very difficult on our marriage- financially as well as personally. All faiths have vocabulary unique to them.
