For me, one of those bouncers is my marriage to the most wonderful woman alive. Learn all you can. The history of racism and violence is upsetting. A stereotype I hope will be destroyed someday, but not today. He really was awful to women and should've come with a warning sticker. I know how much it hurts, and it makes you feel unwanted. Mormons have a well-known code of health, called the Word of Wisdom. I am hopeful and do feel some healing. Within a cultural group marriage is hard. I got the news that my mother suddenly died when I was with him.
I was going to be having leftovers of everything; time, energy, etc. Single women who are educated, regardless of religion, are also going to find similar gender imbalances among their educated peers nowadays. If you like your regular fix of alcohol or nicotine, then dating a Mormon probably isn't a good idea.
And I don't have issues with her, hell, haven't even seen her in over 20 years, but the experience with the whole Mormon thing gave me better insight in to many things in life.

Almost everything is complicated.
Doesn't leave many options here though but better than constantly having them push the church on you until you either give in and convert or break up. I got married to for love and companionship, not to essentially be lonely with a lot of nice things and raise my children "as if" I were a single parent. They will serve as a constant reminder to her that she needs to conform- and you won't be wearing any. I can only hope that my ex realizes and learns from the mistake he made in letting me go. Single parent when I met her. I have already been told I will "lose" to medicine if I put pressure on him. My job starts soon and in January I get started on my masters degree at a new school. Even though it sounds like she is very Mormon, I feel that this will help her. Best to all of you, and may God Fate help us all. If you can't, then it's best to move on.
