Thanks for these thoughts. I'm going to disagree with what some of the people have said. But I'm trying to determine how much of that behavior is truly down to his profession, and how much of it is him not being very into me or just selfish and unwilling to compromise even if that selfishness is a byproduct of his residency, and not how he would be in other circumstances.
Thank you so much. You can ask her directly, or through sources like other Mormons or reading their books. When you said that the doctor spouse sacrifices for their patients and their family sacrifices for the doctor's career, it really described my situation.
And even then it will put Huge stress on it and on you for the rest of your life. Oh well, I'll just pretend she's not mormon and see what happens. Looking back, I can say that when I received this answer to my prayers, I was at one of the most spiritually high moments of my life. You got some good advice from the other posters on how to maintain contact. The extent of other physical activity depends on what you both want from the relationship, though in general the Mormon Church frowns on sexual contact even beyond intercourse. Dress nicely, as the girl will appreciate the effort put into looking good for her, and encourage her to do the same. My husband says he will not compromise and that his physical activity is his priority. She went to BYU and did a 2 year mission, but since she was a girl she got to have a car instead of a bicycle.
She can only get sealed to him in a Mormon temple. Anyway, before you marry you should work out anything hypothetical that might come up in the future. He usually doesn't have time during shifts to grab food, and after shifts, he comes home and crashes. If she says yes. A straight-laced, returned sister missionary, raised in the cult, and in family of similarly entrenched cult members, will not likely remain happy with a non-member. Everything about the loneliness and bourdon of raising the kids solo resonates. As I started to date and fall in love with my husband, almost everyone I knew was against it. And occasionally I have queried the wisdom of that choice. Racial differences can be very trivialвthey really didn't come up much for my parents, for exampleвand are basically false differences.
