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. Marriage does weird things to Mormons You're correct, that he should ask her these things would you marry a non Mormon. Because you are a good person, you will recognize the influence of the Holy Ghost and know that the church is true. If she can accept me for who I am and what I believe, knowing that I'll never give her the eternal family she wants, then maybe we'll be ok. With minimal support on my side and going against everything I had grown up learning, I had to trust my relationship with God. While you will be of the right age to date, the Church discourages you from trying to date someone while on your mission trip. Some day he hopes to make it to Romania and settle down. He could come home from trips and I was too worn out to fake the good cheer. Dozens of missionaries have told me that the gender ratios in other countries are far, far worse. Some day he hopes to make it to Romania and settle down.
As for the Mormon cohort he will be exposed to, I have two thoughts: And so far as I could tell, it worked and no one tried to drag her husband into the church. Hi, like others I've read a lot of the posts but still have a few questions. This is wonderful and in accordance with the desires of a loving Father in Heaven, but it can turn a marriage on its ear, if the spouse is unprepared. The thing is, even though no one else trusted my decision, I prayed about it daily for our entire relationship. A grandpa sense of humor and occasional clever line from an old movie go a long way.
I also didn't want to push him away by overwhelming him with talks about commitment when he's already stressed. She likely believes that her time as a missionary was preparation for marriage. Weirdly, one of the best sexes I ever had was with a lesbian who felt remorse and as though she had betrayed her fellow lesbians.
The point made was that a parallel can be drawn between interfaith and interracial marriages. And as an outsider it will be obvious to you what's going on, but here's an awesome breakdown from a couple that flipped from "we go to church every week - we will write a Mormon blog" to resigning over the new policy banning children of gays all over the NY Times this month and something that is upsetting many staunch church members a few days ago. Who knows, but I think it was especially hard for the moms of young men. Don't get her hopes up too much - in return ask her to do something to research your views. It is much easier for the Holy Ghost to influence good people. If we do, I will be back to share my experiences.
