Why Mormons don't drink wine or coffee. As a non-Mormon male widower Catholic contemplating marrying a devout temple recommended widow, I thank you all for the wonderful blog. Finally, it is a very tight-knit community and despite efforts to insulate you from conversion-minded missionaries, you will be exposed to a lot of people that think, like this woman does, that atheists are without a moral compass. I love talking religion with him and I have never pressured him to change his habits or anything else about him. All these are reasons to have some serious discussions. Instead, I found someone outside the cult and we've been married almost 32 years She's looking for a dedicated priesthood holder who will take her to the temple. I knew a guy who joined the Mormon church because he thought it would help him date a certain Mormon girl, a girl who refused to date non-Mormons. It's so sad to think that people so young will be stuck wearing 19th century undies when they should enjoy their years of being young and stylish.
As an atheist with Buddhist undertones who married a non-practicing, god-believing Mormon at the height of his questioning, I find this so interesting to me. If so, then step away from the internet and go look him in the eyes and take his hands and start asking him all the questions you asked me. I think that if these two really care about each other that she should be told to take a moment and ask herself how she would feel if they break up over this and years later she finally researches her religion. She hasn't submitted the paperwork yet but I have no doubt that she will do this eventually. The thing about General Authorities and General Conference, is that they give general counsel that is meant for the general population. Their job is HARD. I have a 12 year old daughter from my first marriage and so we didn't move in with him until he and I had been together for 2 years. She cannot get into the top echelons of heaven without being sealed to a worthy priesthood holder in the temple for time and all eternity.
