I met my wife at the age of She literally showed up at my apartment one night, wholly unexpected. Unless you convert she won't marry you, plain and simple. Mormonism is not meant to be a casual part of a Mormon's life but it is meant to be the center. I just graduated college and my boyfriend has one more year. 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.
If yes, do you promise to not proselytize to me and let me drink a simple cup of coffee in my own home. Every one thinks I'am a single parent. Breaking up with someone solely because of religion is something people condemn alot on this sub when its a Mormon breaking it off with a non Mormon, but if floats both ways. Learn all you can. A Mormon will tearfully and emotionally recite whichever lesson they need at the given moment. It seems like mormons in particular are even more crazy than the majority of crazy religious people, and the manipulation and treatment of people who wish to think for themselves and challenge their beliefs is really frightening. Things have worked out pretty well with us so far. I don't know if I can do it or if I want to.
Mormonism, like many extreme religions, often stunts the growth of its members. It may not seem like a big deal now, but eventually it will probably surface that at best, the church impacts and influences her behavior in almost every area, at worst, it dictates it. We all know people who know that the gospel is true but they will not accept it.
As these are probably the two most important things to you, it will most likely, be a very difficult decisionвfollow your heart and the spirit. My dad was in the bishopric for most of my childhood, and I was never the person you describe here. I believe when you die, you die, and you live on in memories and hearts.
