I don't want to make a mistake by leaving everything I have going on for me for him. I knew a woman who married a man who converted to the church and she spent the rest of their married life telling him he was not good enough. This happened to me, and it took me forever to get out of the cult. You should be fine as long as you stick to the lines you have laid out. While the Church allows dating at 16, it discourages serious relationships until you both are older and considering marriage. Oh well, at least now I know. You and your fiancee might want to get in touch with one to work out the day-to-day issues of an interfaith marriage. My husband gives the very best of himself to the hospital and the staff and patients every day.
He will not be permitted to bless the child in front of the ward, for instance, so you will have to choose to forego that ritual or find someone else to stand in for the father, which he may not be comfortable with. If you can live with some auxiliary authority in your life knowing that your wife will, as necessary, bend to its will instead of yours, you'll cross those bridges as you come to them. You arent "giving up" anything. That's all she thought about for 18 months, plus the months leading up to it, and winding down. This woman has already given two full years fully devoted to the institution without question. My youngest starts Kindergarten next fall. That was literally over years ago.
