    Honesty Problems in Marriage

    You've been married for 3 decades. You want to stick this out. Here is my advice: You need to accept the fact that this is how she is. She is not going to change. You need to love her as is. There is no need for forgiveness, only acceptance. I'm not you, but for me this behavior would be intolerable. I would advise her that the next Credit Card deception will result in separation and divorce. If she doesn't want that then you will need to take over financial control with an iron fist. If she still lies about Credit Card use, then you follow through on your threat.
  2. Sacrament is 1 hour per week. I'll bet you and your wife waste at least that much time watching tv or whatever in a given week. Ask your wife for 1 hour. While at home you can study your scriptures. You need to concentrate the rest of your time on your wife and child. She was good enough to date, good enough to make a baby with, good enough to marry. You can't complain now that she doesn't like the church. It's too late. Don't worry about impressing your Bishop. Make sure your wife feels like your #1 priority.
  3. I believe they sign their own recommends. Just like mission presidents.

    Doesn't sit well with me

    Traveler - you bill $100/hour for consulting. Consulting is a very low overhead business. Why would you charge that? Are you disclosing your costs to your clients? Wouldn't it be better if you only charged $40/hour? Maybe you would have more customers / contracts.........

    Doesn't sit well with me

    are general authorities required to live the law of consecration? How can we really know how well off they are? Our prophet was a cardiac surgeon. Those guy's make $ almost without limit at the level he was practicing at. What happened to it all? Utchdorf likes his Breitling watches...... not cheap. Pres. Monson was a lifetime church employee, I'm not surprised he had a modest home...

    Real Estate Open House on a Sunday

    Interesting question. I must be completely heathen because I wouldn't blink about doing an open house on Sunday. In today's housing market, you can probably get away with not showing it on Sunday. If it bothers you then don't do it. I would tho..

    Church Clothing - Ethics & Sustainability

    Well, I for one am convinced that I need to pee on my garments to make them white. It will save me the trouble of drinking my chemical pee....... (in the interest of clarity I am just kidding. This has to be one of the funniest threads in a while.....)

    My Husband Slaps Me A lot

    I presume you are a US citizen? he must have been quite the salesman for you to think that marrying him was a good idea. He's slapping you around, yet you still decided to get pregnant with him???? If what you say is true, then you need to get out.

    Falling for a missionary

    Who knows what she meant by it......Girls/women write those types of things but don't always understand the impact it carries with men. If I were you I would put it out of my head until she is done with her mission. If you truly care for her, then wait until she is done. At that point you can pursue to your hearts content.
  12. You do not need to say anything to him. Don't go off implications of the bishop, if you have a question as to what he means, ask him. Also, you probably do not need to disclose what is going on to your future spouse. I can think of few instances where that would be appropriate.
  13. forget the link. THIS: WE, THE FIRST PRESIDENCY and the Council of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children. ALL HUMAN BEINGS—male and female—are created in the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose. IN THE PREMORTAL REALM, spirit sons and daughters knew and worshipped God as their Eternal Father and accepted His plan by which His children could obtain a physical body and gain earthly experience to progress toward perfection and ultimately realize their divine destiny as heirs of eternal life. The divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave. Sacred ordinances and covenants available in holy temples make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally. THE FIRST COMMANDMENT that God gave to Adam and Eve pertained to their potential for parenthood as husband and wife. We declare that God’s commandment for His children to multiply and replenish the earth remains in force. We further declare that God has commanded that the sacred powers of procreation are to be employed only between man and woman, lawfully wedded as husband and wife. WE DECLARE the means by which mortal life is created to be divinely appointed. We affirm the sanctity of life and of its importance in God’s eternal plan. HUSBAND AND WIFE have a solemn responsibility to love and care for each other and for their children. “Children are an heritage of the Lord” (Psalm 127:3). Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs, and to teach them to love and serve one another, observe the commandments of God, and be law-abiding citizens wherever they live. Husbands and wives—mothers and fathers—will be held accountable before God for the discharge of these obligations. THE FAMILY is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity. Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities. By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners. Disability, death, or other circumstances may necessitate individual adaptation. Extended families should lend support when needed. WE WARN that individuals who violate covenants of chastity, who abuse spouse or offspring, or who fail to fulfill family responsibilities will one day stand accountable before God. Further, we warn that the disintegration of the family will bring upon individuals, communities, and nations the calamities foretold by ancient and modern prophets. WE CALL UPON responsible citizens and officers of government everywhere to promote those measures designed to maintain and strengthen the family as the fundamental unit of society.
  14. "praying to God to change my girlfriend...." You have a lot to learn. as pertains to all of your previous responses regarding marriage, adoption, etc...https://www.lds.org/topics/family-proclamation?lang=eng&old=true please click on the link and read. If you have a testimony and support our prophets, seers and revelators, then you will agree with the link as posted.
  15. Junior, 1. You need to break up with her right now or marry her. Choose one, but do it now. Don't be a monster. 2. You are paying 1/2 of her medical bills? Wow bro. you need to do better than that. like it or not she is the mother of your child. 3. Bishop doesn't decide if you are forgiven. He is the facilitator through which you are guided to forgiveness. He needs you to do the things he has asked and meet with him when scheduled. Not keeping your commitments is an indicator that you are not repentant. 4. If you keep on this path you en-route to disfellowship or excommunication. 5. Do not go live with your girlfriend/ex/baby momma after the kid is born unless you are husband and wife. Don't be ridiculous. Part of being a grown up is taking responsibility for your actions. Doing what is right even when you don't want to. You have made decisions that impact the lives of 3 human beings. Time to man up.
