A ham and I got engaged on my birthday. I was so happy. He took my hand and led me to the back; there was a paper banner that said my name the bartender made it — we go there a lot ; there was a live string duet. I was confused. Why was there a sombre cello at my birthday party? Why was my boyfriend doing his Intense Face? Then it all happened at once: the knee, the ring, the speech, the question, the tears. All the hits. It was a full-blown grand gesture. Thin girls get public proposals, like those dudes are winning a fucking prize.

When he is doing these things, he gets really upset with me if I try to talk to him because he's busy. There are other occasions for humor, but these two are off the table. Take your date to a club with loud music and an open bar, or an R-rated or violent movie, and the prospects of it going well are daunting. I'm telling you the spouse who stays pays a terrible price. I married a recent convert girl в she may as well have been a nonmember в and less than a year later we got an annulment.
We might not always like the way some priesthood holders act, but to disparage the priesthood is not being responsible. Good to see that I'm not alone. It has been very difficult to reconcile our two expectations, hopes and dreams. We are both extremely busy, and maybe that's why we work, but we try to make the time for our relationship. Being married and raising a family can be very difficult if the two of you disagree about important issues like religion. She might not realize how important it is to compromise.
