Lds hanging out vs dating
bc Re: short courtships Part of it is the Mormon over-reliance on the spirit to make life decisions.
So if both people feel "prompted" to get married, often, they go for it. Part of it is Mormons are encouraged to marry and breed young.
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.
There should be dating, followed by careful and thoughtful and thorough courtship.
There should be ample opportunities to experience the prospective spouse’s behavior in a variety of circumstances.
) that he kept questioning whether or not we felt sexually attracted to each other.
I couldn't believe how it was everybody's business.
I have (another) question I hope you don't mind answering.Well, we were in the same student stake in the area, and lo and behold the following sunday, I see this girl holding hands with another guy..biggie, but I found out, that she was already engaged to this guy, and as I said, this was 1 WEEK LATER!!!! So much for the so-called "Spirit confirming the one you are to marry", that is complete BS!! ) IT compleltly threw the so called spirit thing right out the window.I had 3 different girls in an 8 month period tell me they had prayed and I was the one. I will outline a typical mormon dating scenario....and girl see each other in class or at sunday school." 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.
