Personally I have a rule that I will not enter a relationship with a believing Mormon. The ideal, in my opinion, is that she discovers what we all know about the lies the church tells her. Yes, because that is generally what is best. We Finally spent a week alone together for our anniversary and it was glorious. As a general authority I knew, now deceased, told me in the mid-eightiesвIf you find a good man who is not LDS, marry him. I respect what my husband does but I have nothing but my pets and a dusty Ivy Leaguedegree.

Dress nicely, as the girl will appreciate the effort put into looking good for her, and encourage her to do the same. I get to spend my life with someone who was not raised on fear and guilt and strict gender roles. If you can love them unconditionally with how they are now, then I say go for it. We have been married 2 decades in a new city away from family and friends and I am this close pinches fingers to starting a local Facebook Club for people like us. It wouldn't be as often as from someone with an ordinary job and schedule, but it would happen.
