When I hear some of the issues going on in Mormon Land, I usually say to myselfв. They have heavy-handed laws, free handouts, unfair advantages for getting jobsвa loud feminist illusion spoon fed to them. You must either really love blue balls, or else she is not a real deal Mormon girl. I agree with what you and so many of the other replies have said: Listen with an open heart and curiosity. And no I would not pressure them to convert but as a Latter-day Saint I would pray for them to convert as I do for many people I know and love.
He'll pitch in when he can, but that isn't too often. Cousin the same age who just got married has known her husband 6 months. Thanks for the help. Don't put them through that either. Marriage is simply not an option to me there. When my husband and I were sealed, I finally understood why my Dad had been stressing this to me my entire life. Hi, I am not a doctor's wife. Life is a journey and going through it with a true partner, and a mutual respect for curiosity, is so far greatly rewarding. As such, it tends to attract the young and insecure.
We are very blessed. These girls are nervous around non-Mormons. If everything she is taught is correct and the Mormon church is "true" she should be able to research any anti-Mormon books or movies and prove their criticisms are lies. I was going to get engaged to a surgen Indians do go for arranged marriage but my teacher she is married to a doctor asked me if i could manage to sacrifice family time after i get married to a doc. They were taught that bold sincerity of purpose and a charitable attitude is what makes a man. I married a recent convert girl в she may as well have been a nonmember в and less than a year later we got an annulment. Also, what do you and your fiancee do to deal with the busyness.
I don't think we could have a real conversation about those points either. But I was unusual in that I never really wanted to convert my husband I was worried I'd have to divorce him if he turned true Mormon and he didn't need me to believe way he does. In my view, baptism at 8 is just a variation on infant baptism. Please realize I know how the church works, was extremely active and raised good kids. Thank you so much for putting this Blog together.
