He also wants to have kids soon since I am already The dilemma I have now is: I do not know how would our relationship shape up, after marriage, assuming everything goes fine. I believe when you die, you die, and you live on in memories and hearts. We are alone for many months at a time. The Church encourages people to be a good influence on one another, and she will probably expect you to dress well for her. I'm telling you the spouse who stays pays a terrible price. Trying to maintain a long-distance relationship with someone at home or attempting to date someone you meet while on mission are both distractions. Can anyone suggest specific talking points from content on LDS. She's a wonderful person and I think we could work, so yes. You got some good advice from the other posters on how to maintain contact.

Not in endless discussions of temple marriage, not ever.
Honestly, it isn't her fault. That said, I would be fully aware that Mormonism is going to compel even the best of them to do some truly horrendous stuff at times. Whatever your leaders have said, consider their counsel, give it the weight it deserves, then counsel with your Heavenly Father about your own situation. Observe the suttle loony behavior of the family during thanksgiving. Someday she may really regret everything, and miss you like crazy.
