My question is, my 30th birthday weekend is coming up and when I mentioned it to him he informed me that an old friend from college's wedding was that weekend and that he wanted to go. How do you feel about that. Unless you have some super amazing other dating prospect there isn't a huge reason to cut this relationship off now. But I ultimately leave it to him most times. Fortunately most of my immediate family has done better.

This guy was orbiting so strongly that he changed his religion before they were even dating. Make sure the girl you like is already 16 years old. Her home time is exclusively for the kids and paper work.
It is much easier for the Holy Ghost to influence good people. As our relationship has progressed, this vague hypothetical question has led to some much more concrete thinking about what an interfaith marriage would be like for me, for him, and for us. So if you feel like you both are getting serious, then talk to your girlfriend in time and sort this issue out. She is instructed to have children within wedlock very soon, raise these children in a Mormon home, and devote hours each week to church activities plus Sabbath observance on Sunday. He had a nervous breakdown- panic attack by 10am. I've heard way too many stories of people breaking up with amazing people and they end up alone or in a less happy relationship. I know you love her but is it worth it. I don't mean to be rude, but she's not gonna give up her "nonsense".
Go on your different ways as friends and don't expect your relationship to go anywhere. She was fine marrying in an LDS church instead of the temple, didn't want to convert me, and most importantly didn't try to change my beliefs or opinions. She really likes me, and if she could change one thing about me it would be my lack of religion. Mormonism is fundamental to my religious beliefs and my personal sense of identity, and it is the community that I identify with most strongly. It is an act of faith. I got married so that we could build a life together. Even though we live together, we barely see each other - when he is working nights, we go several days without seeing each other at all he is usually still at work when I head out in the morning, and gone by the time I get back in the evenings. You are expecting him to be like your exes and you want him to be the one to chase you.
And generally those people seem to have great difficulty in breaking off the relationship, even though they are told that it is a dead-end situation that will cause them big trouble in the future. But I ultimately leave it to him most times. There will be struggles in marriage and childrearing whether or not he is a member. That means that we are always changing and growing.
