I have been known to share though because it gets on my nerves when my friends complain to me about how much money we are making Recently by some pure act of coincidence my hubby ended up with a day off on Labor day. But my relationship with him is worth this small sacrifice. I don't think I'm eligible to advice, but I would say be prepared to be independent and make lots of friends. Is it wrong that I feel guilty?. Cousin the same age who just got married has known her husband 6 months. I want him to commit more to his family and himself. He may never come out and say it, but if you mention marriage outside of the church and he's OK with it, you have a slight chance of being happily married to her and not being mormon. Now I feel sadness for losing out because of fear, and a cult mindset.
I really like this girl but, is Mormonism so toxic that I should just sever the relationship before it gets serious. The best advice I can give is stay true to yourself. I have learned this painfully with my child growing up in the LDS community. She doesn't want to marry you. I have read some of the comment here and would like to share my experience. I'm blessed that he is well and doing so well in school. I definitely don't want to lead her on. I married for companionship but now all I do is wait for him to stop working, to come home, to call me back, to have time, which is hardly ever. I was thinking the same thing when I read this.
