Short time dating before marriage
Fiancés should learn everything they can about the families with whom they will soon be joined in marriage." https://org/general-conference/2007/04/divorce?lang=eng But Mormon culture knows that that's lip service.Boy: "HF, is this the person I am supposed to marry"???Meanwhile hormones are raging, and the thought of having sex in the near future makes the bosom burn within..to mention the nether regions....answer...wow, the hair stood on the back of my neck, and I feel twinges...be the right person!!! "" (Suddently hormones rage, and the wonderful thought that girl will make it to marriage by the time she is 20, and even though sex has been taught to me as the end all beat all of human existence, she still gets twinges)...guess he's the right one for me!!!2 months later, after parents, and friends, and bishops telling them to stay away from each other and "don't touch", they are married, having the worst sex of their, or anybody's life, and bam, next thing you know, there is 5 kids, husband is addicted to porn, cuz he never gets any and has been a sexually repressed Omega male his whole life, and she is on Anti-depressants, wondering how this all happened!NO, this is not autobiographical, it did however happen to several friends, and one of my brothers.
On the other hand, my bishop was so astounded that we had the physical thing under control (we really did wait!" I told her I was a big girl and could decide these things on my own, thank you very much.4 weeks later her son got married, and 8 months after that, a baby arrived.I started seeing the sister of a friend, who was a missionary companion of mine. The third time, I was asked, with crying eyes, if I was ever going to propose to her, as she had prayed and been told, "Beyond a Shadow of a Doubt", that I was the one for her! (Never mind that another girl, told me the same thing, only a week earlier).THe kicker is, I decided to end it, after that night.
I love Mormon mom message boards (I know, I know), and every so often I see a thread like "How long did you date before you married?
