It's been really tough and am only hoping to see a glimpse of the reward soon, whether it is simply watching a movie and actually finish it in one sitting or finally having dinner in the same room. The 3rd time, I was a crying mess, which he has never seen me do so he knew he had royally blown it. Just an idea, I have no idea what would actually work for her. Maybe more convinced than you are.
But now, in addition to being a primary spouse, I'm also the primary parent. I had many, many friends who moved this quickly during courtship, too. There are many good things.
The misogyny is deep in the Mormon church. God roots for both our teamsвthe hopeful screw-ups and the straights. I entertained without him, but with frequent phone calls, lol.
But what I discovered surprised me. In response to the anonymous comment posted April 3, I am not married but have been dating a medical student for about four years, he is in his second year of residency and it has honestly been difficult because when he graduated medical school he had to move five hours away to start his residency program so we travel back and forth and our relationship is serious but im scared that things will never get better as far as his busy schedule, even when im there to visit he is on call and im basically on a mini vacation by myself. With me it's less about taking my time and more about the mental drain. I clearly stated twice that I severed things with the girl. As a parent, we hope our children will make life choices that will give them the greatest chance of happiness. Now 13 years later, my son is a teenager. Some say, they love wearing it, it gives them "protection from evil". She is going on a mission which means she is heavily invested in performing according to the cultural expectations.
