KScience Posted August 26, 2019 Report Share Posted August 26, 2019 (edited) Hi, Well done for starting to get your relationship on the right track. IMO you still have some way to go before you are ready to marry this man. If you don't trust him enough to share this information with him, do you trust him with your life and your eternity? If the roles were reversed how would you feel? Is there anything that he could be hiding from his past that would be a game changer for you? If so have you explicitly asked him about this? He has reacted really positively so far, but does he believe that you go to church regularly, just don't have a temple recommend? How will your lives fit in together with him being focussed on the gospel and going to church, scripture study etc?? You have a lot of conversations which need to take place before you are ready to join your lives together e.g. How are you compatible spiritually, financially, emotionally, physically? Do you have common goals that you will work towards as a family? I can understand the need for short engagements but you guys need to have a really intense series of conversations before marriage or you are going to have a stormy start to your relationship. If he wants a wife who has the same spiritual values as him, how will you achieve this? I understand how difficult it is dealing with anxiety ( I am moving and joining a new ward next weekend and fully expect to be vomiting in anxiousness, but this will not stop me ) I would recommend prayerfully taking your anxiety to Christ and ask him to sustain you and support you so you can attend, for just a sacrament meeting). My only caveat would be DON'T go to church JUST to please your partner, you both deserve people who will fulfill all parts of your life and make each other happy.
