I am in relationship with my fiance for almost a year. I've only seen him 3 times. He might be a doc by day but when he's not at the hospital he's a regular guy just like anyone else. You and your fiancee might want to get in touch with one to work out the day-to-day issues of an interfaith marriage.
In other words, eternal marriage really is worth it, I think. It gives people a sense of purpose, while pressuring them to be 'good' by their book. How is that gonna work. Obviously don't make any commitments further in the relationship because you do not want to be married into an insane orthodox LDS family because it will cause alot of troubles. Soon you'll feel better, because you're not alone. As a general authority I knew, now deceased, told me in the mid-eightiesвIf you find a good man who is not LDS, marry him.
