See where it goes. Which is the highest place in heaven aka celestial kingdom. This is a reply to all. Is he aware that if your children are faithful members of the church they might end of marrying in the temple and he would not be allowed to attend the ceremony. It has nothing to do with their career. It time with him I value most. But that parent-child relationship was bound to change anyways as you become an adult. If you were the one who did the asking, it is simply chivalrous and gentlemanly for you to pay for dinner, the movie, or whatever else you do. What do you occupy your time with.
I met my wife at the age of She literally showed up at my apartment one night, wholly unexpected. This can also be the basis for forming important friendships, and learning proper skills for social interaction. Congratulations on understanding that and avoiding problems. I know I am a strong person but it really does suck sometimes. If she can't or won't consider that the church is a lie, you need to move on because this relationship can't go anywhere.

Our daughter is 6. Since her father is a bishop, I'm sure he'll want to have his daughter marry a temple worthy person. He has changed so much over the years and is very impatient with the kids.
It is difficult to learn to have no expectations towards him, even though our mindset towards medicine is the same. In regards to my current situation, I feel like a lot of the time he doesn't understand that things like MCAT's and studying undergrad or med school come first. Is forever possible with a doctor??. I remember when my ex and I had invited friends to our house for a 4th of July dinner and had spent a lot of money and time getting ready. I've luckily broken down my GF's defenses about the church a little bit. If she is open to questioning her faith, perhaps she can chase you down. All of which will remind her that she wants you to convert so you can be together for eternity. 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.
