The brethren have taught that there is an ideal pattern for marriage.
But the issue of marrying a non-member raises two fundamental problems: That idea seems so contrary to the nature of God. He has no vices, is the happiest person I know, is a healthy role model of manhood for my teen daughter and loves me to the depth of his soul.
My boyfriend is currently in his third year of medical school. Another thing to keep in mind: It's a very long, very hard journey to even get to that point of the MD marathon.
I still love my Heavenly Father and my Savior.
My husband did his residency in family medicine before work hour restrictions and pulled hour work weeks just like the surgeons.
