I felt her fear, everything she's said, I said. The first week home he is already covering someone elses cases I struggle with where to draw the line Again we have never had coverage when we needed it. This always seemed terribly wrong to me. You've stated that she had numerous guys break up with her after she took sex off the table. He can't make a mental switch easily to adjust to our pace of life. He believes in God, but also believes that God is everywhere, and therefore does not need to be worshipped in a specific place of worship with specific prayers.
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 gave me a very clear answer that this was right. The fact that she is dating an atheist non-Mormon shows pretty serious lack of conformity already. They believe that the body is a temple that needs to be worshiped, and that inner beauty is more important.
Would she want you to attend church with her. I disagree with the doctrines and practices of the LDS church. Either way, if you have kids and you don't convert, she will divorce you and take your kids away from you and you will be shunned from her community.
I've supported him for 5 years, taken on that Doctor's Partner role, put my ambitions on the back burner, and it hasn't done a lick of good. Trust me, I too tried to make it work with my very Mormon also returned missionary ex-girlfriend. There is NO guarantee that marrying a returned missionary RM in the temple equates with love and happiness. If you do believe it fully, are you not really going to want him to make the conversion ultimately. I really hadn't considered a lot of the points people have brought up. But it is important to be ruthlessly honest with yourself about how you feel about it. There is no question this is the true church. It is so hard, so sad and so lonely. But life is long and eternal and all righteous people will choose the right at the end.
