Sunday is considered sacred by Mormons, and they do not undertake any entertaining or outdoor activities that result in spending, on that day. Forget what anyone else says or expects of you. But God works in mysterious ways. If I were you, I would just nope out of it and move on. If not, it's better to find out now than to continue with something that isn't satisfying you. But actions speak louder than words. I know a non-Mormon guy who married a Mormon woman and has kept her beautiful and desirable, by encouraging her religious involvement, even though he avoided Mormonism himself. But I do still largely consider us an interfaith couple. I'm not trying to be mean, just very clear. She is going to be taught for the rest of her life in the church the importance of missionary work and eternal families, and Priesthood in the home.
I think about leaving all the time now because by myself there are no disappointments. It seems like mormons in particular are even more crazy than the majority of crazy religious people, and the manipulation and treatment of people who wish to think for themselves and challenge their beliefs is really frightening. We are only engaged and as much as I love him, I can't handle the pain of watching my goals and dreams wash away to be at his disposal. One thing that has helped my husband and I was a marriage class we joke that it was more like marriage therapy when we had only been married two years. But the idea of marrying my husband felt right from almost the get-go and, my patriarchal blessing made so much more sense. This brings me to the thorniest bit: If your wife is Mormon, your kids will be expected to be Mormon. Many, many lapsed Mormons catch the true vision of the gospel at some time in their lives and desire to repent and become observant again.
