In the car on the way back to school, she told me her story.
I can't tell you how many hasty engagements and marriages I've witnessed between my friends and acquaintances over the years.
I've seen couples engaged within 9 days of meeting each other.
So often, love or even basic compatibility has nothing to do with it. It was about marriage and I think it was out of the last manual before J Smith teachings, but it was along the same lines. I commented that I felt differently, but maybe that was just me. Mormon boys come home from two-year missions with their hormones boiling, and are then told to marry soon.
So our HPGL said that you could pair any two together and if they really lived their religion, there would be no reason not to have a happy marriage. Mormon Girls are in a panick to get engaged before the end of collage (at BYU).
AND they ended up divorced because she is so messed up.
So--I THOUGHT I'd save my kids from the insanity of mormon marriage, but it doesn't look like I did a very good job.
She didnt have the same feelings for her husband as she did for her old boyfriend, but by golly she was sure to get closer to the celestial kingdom! Damn the influence of Mormonism on our young lives!!! This has all come to the forefront recently as I watch my teenage son and his relationship with his girlfriend. Being exmo now, he doesnt have the confines of choosing someone with mormon standards of behavior or morality.
I now look back at the lost loves and opportunities in my own young life because of that influence. He can choose someone that he is really attracted to and that he really, really likes without concern regarding religion.
They are both told they can't go wrong with a Temple marriage. So, these kids come soon and the young parents are both deeply trapped in the Mormon church for the rest of their lives They get sucked into this stupid swamp early in life before they even know who they are. This life is really the sh*ts so every decision you make is supposed to prepare for a better life to come after you leave this life.
