I am glad that I came across your blog. I'm not quite bitter but a tad fed up as have given up family, career, friends and started afresh x 2 again to be left alone at the other side of the planet with two young kids, moving house and setting up home with just 4 suitcases.
By that I mean that we ought to consider simply marrying within the faith and in the temple for all the reasons that people have given. If so, then step away from the internet and go look him in the eyes and take his hands and start asking him all the questions you asked me.
I just started dating this guy and not only is he in the army, but also a doctor. I'm not saying you shouldn't pursue the relationship, but I'd only recommend marrying her if she leaves the church because she discovers it's not true.
I envy all you lonely doctor wives. I can honestly say this isn't worth it.
