Let me say this so you can get an idea of just how crazy and how much your girl friend is into the Mormon religion: These are known as "garments". Really, I'm interested in this too. The brethren have taught that there is an ideal pattern for marriage. I'd have plenty if we divorced. So if you are dating a Mormon guy, always wear knee-length, avoid tiny shorts, mini skirts, short or revealing dresses, plunging necklines, or sleeveless tops. Take what you read with a grain of salt. Even if you are looking towards marriage, it can be better to hold off on more serious activities until a couple of dates to make sure you both feel the relationship is moving in the right direction. Another simple and doable option is to go online; there are many LDS dating sites where you can sign up and meet new and interesting people. To others making this consideration, I would certainly suggest that you converse with your Father in Heaven about this important choice. Once you both die, you will not be married in the afterlife and she will get assigned to be the polygamous wife of someone else.
And of course we have been taughtвby Brigham Young, at leastвthat even when Christ comes during the Millenium there will be those who will not accept him as their Savior even if they accept him as the leader of the world. How do you maintain a healthy balance with relationships and work when your partner has a more demanding profession than you. But it would not change my love for that person.
Deep down I know he could pass on that stuff, but never the less it seems like a necessary inconvenience to attend these events. There have been times in my marriage where I have been frustrated and angry by his lack of change. I would do it all over again and thank my lucky stars that I found this man, that he loves, and that I love him. There is a lot about Mormonism I am still struggling to understand, but I am reading faith-based memoirs and studying up on Mormonism as well as other religions but the relevance here is on Mormonism. Wonderful memories made for both of us.
I married a non-member over 20 years ago. As the patriarchal leader, it will be up to you to figure it out and to dispel her unrealistic fantasies. She will try to convert you. Home no title About Contact.
