I've read through some stuff there and it all seems pretty tame so far. It will be up to you, her man, to support the positive expectations. There are a lot of single people in the world. I wish I could find a support group in South Africa. The only thing I can say is good luck to all. Then she can have a chance to actually be the individual she is, and they can have an adult conversation about their future and whether or not they have one. I feel pretty awful about that whole thing. Mormon's view marriages outside the temple to be counterfeit and you can't get into the temple without converting to the religion.
I am so confused. I felt her fear, everything she's said, I said. I would never change my decision to marry him.
I know we don't know each other, but it seems like we all share a commonality that connects us all very deeply. Life is not perfect. I don't want to advocate manipulation but asking questions concerning Joseph's dishonesty about polygamy to his first wife and his marriage of other men's wives and marriage of a 14 year old may prove more fruitful than just saying wow polygamy is messed up. This can be a good way to learn more about your personalities. First, let's start with a short musical introduction on what it's like to be a True Believing Mormon dude. In many ways, she was everything that I ever wanted in a spouse, but in other ways she was not what I ever expected. He will not be permitted to bless the child in front of the ward, for instance, so you will have to choose to forego that ritual or find someone else to stand in for the father, which he may not be comfortable with. One of the most well known church prophets stated that he would rather see his own child dead in their coffin than married outside the temple. He totally blew me off and said "blah blah blah" and it was so early in our relationship that I was taken aback and didn't push the issue then and there. Make sure the girl you like is already 16 years old.
It can't be antiMormon. Do you know anyone working in medicine or in the healthcare field. This was hard for me because my faith is deeply rooted within me.
