To answer your question: Even when he does, everything is on his terms. Also thank God that when he starts his real podiatry job next year he will have steady hours. As a Christian one's values won't allow an affair on the lonely spouse' part either - but that probably won't bug you by the sounds of it. He is in a way to become a Ex mormon. In many ways, she was everything that I ever wanted in a spouse, but in other ways she was not what I ever expected. God Bless you and all the other doctors' wives that have transparently shared their experiences on your page. I completely relate to all you've written; many of us have come to see Mormonism for what it is, and the severe damage it does to human brains. This insecurity is at the root of the princess syndrome. The decisions we have made in how to raise our kids have been our decisions alone. After deep soul searching, I decided to stop working and be a stay at home mom.
I got married so that we could build a life together. Sadly, I'm not sure at this point. This brings me to the thorniest bit: If your wife is Mormon, your kids will be expected to be Mormon. It made me sad to think that the thing that was most important my life в my faith в was something that I could never fully share with my husband. Thanks - I searched but couldn't find it. This does not mean that you cannot do those things, but remember that she will not be able to do them with you. There's a ton of crazy in what we were taught all our lives. You aren't engaged or married or anything, you can't just know that she won't see the light and remain crazy Mormon forever.
I think it might be worth trying. I know this post is kind of all over the place but I had to get it out I Here's to hoping that this coming weekend he isn't on call, doesn't have to fill in, doesn't have a million charts to finish, and doesn't have any crazy medical emergencies!!. If you can, do it now.
He doesn't realize that when he spends so much time at the hospital they take this as a sign that he has no home life. Ask him if he's not seeing you to not commit. It sounds like you dont even know this guy well enough to answer that question but I could be wrong. Now a basic overview of the gospel. I grew up believing that when, where, and by what authority I was married were equally important to whom I married. We all know people who know that the gospel is true but they will not accept it. I'm firmly in the RUN camp. I've been feeling like a single mother for many years. Spending a lifetime single is not something most people would choose to do, but fear of being forever single should never be a deciding factor in entering a marriage, lest serious problems go unaddressed before serious commitments are made.
