However, if you are a Catholic guy dating a Mormon girl, then remember that her parents may be averse to it. If so, you have a chance. She encourages me to develop my skills and talents, and provides an example in several of those areas. Just let things keep going. I realize that the answers to many of these questions may be different for every family, and that we need to continue to discuss them more as a couple as we continue to think about our future. Unfortunately I've been sort of seeing a girl who is basically a real deal Mormon. The dots are extremely close for every LDS person, its just extremely hard to connect them. Religion is super important to LDS people but there's also alot of exmormons. It was actually causing more of a rift than bringing us together.
A stereotype I hope will be destroyed someday, but not today. As our relationship has progressed, this vague hypothetical question has led to some much more concrete thinking about what an interfaith marriage would be like for me, for him, and for us. Honestly, you are probably the only person who she has ever known to outwardly label themselves an atheist. I alway understood and supported him so it was my way of being useful in the world, too.
I'm not saying you shouldn't pursue the relationship, but I'd only recommend marrying her if she leaves the church because she discovers it's not true. I learned how truly very Mormon I really am, to the deepest part of my soul. They value femininity, motherhood, and masculinity in men. As a matter of fact, you can begin here. As Joanne mentioned, should you marry interfaith, you will have lots of help from fellow ward members on converting your spouse. Not unless she thinks she can convert you. Ask her if her parents buy their underwear from a bookstore. I wouldn't end a relationship with her, just as I wouldn't deny someone a job, or refuse to socialize with someone who is a Mormon. Should we try to heed their counsel and marry in the Church. Thanks so much for all the time you've put into your replies.
She has to decide for herself what she believes, but you can definitely help expose her to new ideas. Well, you won't be getting into anything soon. To Anonymous Jan 25, He clearly does not care for you the way that you care for him. Like any woman I am a Medical Assistant I sometimes question myself and ask myself what I would do if "unfaithfulness" came across. He just saw someone die or gave a devastating diagnosis or did an incredibly complex surgery with potential complications.
