I also remember my father a stake president telling me the night before I got married that every single couple he had counseled through marriage struggles were not reading their scriptures or praying together every night. And I never found that "good Mormon girl". We will occasionally go as long as days without talking at all, and when we do sometimes we go a full day between responding to each other's texts. I feel pretty awful about that whole thing.

If she is still Mormon and you are not, she will always secretly hope that you convert, just like you will always secretly hope she leaves the church. You can and should share with her why you don't and never will believe in the Mormon church, and let her decide for herself, but be prepared to have that blow up in your face. But now, we embrace our spiritual differences. I just pray that we can make it through the next 3 years.
I never give him shit for it. I was thinking the same thing when I read this. Great questions, and a terrific answer, Joanna. Although I do want a long term relationship and to eventually start a family I am NOT going to give up my dream of becoming a physician. It's really cool to be able to connect with someone who shares all of those things with me. I'm surprised this thread is still getting replies. My mom always said the more you have, the more it owns you, so true. Despite having three children around, it gets super lonely. I would never change my decision to marry him. When she goes on a mission, she will go through the temple which means she will be wearing garments.
I ran across your post out of desperation. The schedule is erratic at best. I am not quite a spouse of a doctor. I gave her a piece of my mind as my home is much happier and healthy now then when I was married to my x.
