I wouldn't end a relationship with her, just as I wouldn't deny someone a job, or refuse to socialize with someone who is a Mormon. I have many friends and members of my family who married within the church and later divorced. Dozens of missionaries have told me that the gender ratios in other countries are far, far worse. Having said this, there are several aspects of this particular religion that you need to be aware of as these will greatly affect how she will approach you and the relationship as a whole. It does kick your butt!. First of all, Mormons are people so there is a spectrum of what they actually believe on a personal level, and what beliefs are most important to them.
The reality is that while God gave us a gospel of love and stands always ready to give us a helping hand, his mercy will not rob his justice. Having married over the course of my life not one but two wonderful non-Mormon men one Jewish and one low-church ProtestantI can say that my own spirituality has been profoundly deepened and enriched by the perspective that these two God-fearing and spiritually mature people offered me, and by my participation in the observances of their traditions. The brethren have taught that there is an ideal pattern for marriage. I try to visit for a couple hours here and there.
The woman provides advice and counsel but doesn't preside. They're hidden pretty deep on LDS. Although with the change in times, people may not follow these rules as stringently as before, it is still better to be careful so as to not offend anyone, and you may possibly land up with the love of your life. Just go ahead and ask for the definitions and treat it like learning a new language. Notify me of new posts via email.
By Thursday, I'd feel like he disappeared. This blog accommodates some frank admissions about that which is less than wonderful about LDS. 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.
