Wish I knew ways on how to cope with being a girlfriend to a doctor. Oh, and remember LDS girls are usually good at leading guys on with potential sex to get guys to agree to what they want join the church. But I was unusual in that I never really wanted to convert my husband I was worried I'd have to divorce him if he turned true Mormon and he didn't need me to believe way he does. I forgot to add, that if you marry and alow your children to be raised as Mormon, chances are you wont be able to be at their wedding because it will be in the temple.
I am no longer the vivacious young girl……life has not been easy. It's alot to understand if not raised and taught in it specifically. The brethren have taught that there is an ideal pattern for marriage.
