Last year I trained for and ran a marathon, which was a pretty good distraction, but with the move recently and work being quieter than usual I'm finding it tougher than I have before. However, you might be lucky to not have the experience I did. I'm a Mormon girl in love with an amazing non-Mormon man. There are many good things.

Avoid the topic when you can, it's not something that'll be pretty unless handled in a calm discussion which Well, people as a whole tend to be pretty immature with big topics.
