I I must also say that some of them truly do have affairs even wit the best of spouses. For me and the woman I'm in love with, we CAN discuss it without breaking down into spittle and hate. If he says he wants to keep things casual, head for the hills - he's the latter and he doesn't appreciate you. With that being said, I have long considered myself just a tad outside super TBM since we watched Game of Thrones, drank energy drinks, and occasionally stayed in my running clothes sans garments to do yard work. We met after he finished his residency and started working as an ER director. I feel selfish to never be around but this is my dream so much so that I refuse to have children because I dont want my kids to have a workaholic mother who's never there. After a lot of thought during that relationship with a non-Mormon, I laid out exactly what struggles I was probably going to face: I was worried about my own faith. If I knew any better going into this relationship I would have stopped. The system has broken him down and rebuilt him as someone, I fear, I won't be able to respect or feel connected to.

Family or girlfrient or the pet. But that parent-child relationship was bound to change anyways as you become an adult. Well, maybe not a total disaster, that is a bit exaggerated. Having no expectations and being flexible is very important. But I wish he would call or text me or maybe make a sweet gesture every once in awhile. I've luckily broken down my GF's defenses about the church a little bit. If you do manage to break her away from the church, her family will be there to continue sowing doubt. But he feels I need to stick to one career and be content. How could I help a non-Mormon spouse to feel like a member of my ward family when he is not a member of my church.
I don't think you "dodged a bullet" but I do think new residents change Other wives told me my husband would "come back" but we are still in the training so I can't tell you whether that is completely true or not. Lack of motivation and endless loneliness that has caused me to be a lazy 15 pounds heavier woman. And her husband now is dead and she is left to wonder about their future.
