Shelah at FMH recently posted about having opposite-sex friends in Mormon culture.
I wonder how much my culture plays a part in the fact that I haven?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t developed platonic relationships with male friends as a married woman. I mean, if I can?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t have missionaries in my home unless my husband is around . . . and can?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t team teach my daughter?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s nursery class with a man who isn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t my husband, that seems to send a pretty clear message that friendship isn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t exactly encouraged.
What do you think about this part of our culture?
