It seems to me like you are walking into a relationship where there is a significant disconnect from the start. It was not just frustrating but also saddening and stressful. At the end of the day, nothing I say or do can help him see this. In the end, if the guy is the keeper you say he is then go with your gut.
And on the other hand the thought of having to go through these residency years ahead haunts me. Yes, do sever the relationship. It's typical to not hear from him for weeks. I don't know if living vicariously through him will be enough. Not having expectations, as others mentioned, is also key to reducing feelings of frustration. How is that gonna work. If this happens, it might click something in her mind that says that what she experienced was pleasurable and she would like to have it again.

They do exist and you deserve that. There will always be difference between spouses. Yes; I suppose if each of us believe the other is brainwashed, there's going to be major problems later on. I'm busier than many people my age, but not as much as he is. The woman I have feelings for is conflicted on her religion in regards to me. It is highly likely that she will pressure you to convert, and if you resist, she may resent you for being the barrier to her being sealed to her children. That desire that they be someone other than who they were when they married you is toxic to a relationship. If all the Mormons truly were the pricks we often claim them to be, then Mormonism would be the perfect punishment for them. Just go ahead and ask for the definitions and treat it like learning a new language. If you end up marrying a true believing Mormon, your marriage will be a threesome.
