I read every page of the CES letter, and it's definitely convinced me this entire religion is fabricated, but I'm sure she wouldn't even read it much less consider its points seriously. We feel good about our choices, but know it might not be the right path for everyone. If you are willing to wait, then well and good; otherwise, it is best to move on. We might not always like the way some priesthood holders act, but to disparage the priesthood is not being responsible. God loves every last one of us, regardless of religious affiliation. The independent work is just as important as the work we do as a couple. I do feel frustrated sometimes when spends his limited free time to go out with the guys, but I realize that he needs this release every once in a while. If you try to deconvert her I suggest indirectly at first. Leave her so you can both find people that youre more suited for. 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.
They value femininity, motherhood, and masculinity in men. Until you can believe someone else's beliefs are reasonable, you will not be able to treat them with the respect they deserve. I tried telling him that I know myself enough that I would not be happy in this kind of relationship.
At that point, I would have gotten half of everything we own. Drinkers tend to rely on drink before they can have fun. But it is luck of the draw. I'm firmly in the RUN camp.
He was lonely, as was she. I know a non-Mormon guy who married a Mormon woman and has kept her beautiful and desirable, by encouraging her religious involvement, even though he avoided Mormonism himself. This includes both asking and offering assistance. I would have been deeply insulted if anyone talked about me the way people are talking about this girl He needs to tell her there is a no chance he will convert, that he is not comfortable with his children being raised Mormon if he isn'tthat she cannot ever expect a temple marriage with him. I'm not going to break up with her because of her religion, but if we can't come to some kind of understanding about what we'd do with kids After reading every page of that CES letter I am fully aware this religion is a complete fabrication. That would only encourage her to give up other standards that really are serious and to become like the typical Western degenerate.
