Dear Ask Mormon Girl:
I am sure I will never find a Mormon guy who will make me happy, to marry in the temple. I am 20 years old, Iâ€™m not out of time, but I have a lot of problems with church and marriage in general. I was told all my life to accept it as the truth with no questioning, and that if you do everything â€œrightâ€ then youâ€™ll be happy no matter what. I found that my parents never really were happy and when my dad came out of the closet, and my parents divorced, it proved me right, that doing whatâ€™s â€œrightâ€ doesnâ€™t make you â€œhappy.â€ I feel pressure to date only guys who are Mormons even though a Mormon guy wouldnâ€™t understand me very well. I donâ€™t have a very good â€œtestimonyâ€ of the church, but honestly I would still like to get married in the temple, to an upstanding guy. Iâ€™m just not sure how to get there without denying my true feelings about men who think theyâ€™re â€œoverâ€ their wives, who expect their wives to fit the homemaker mold, and my feelings that marriage canâ€™t work even, and especially, when founded on the teachings of the Mormon church.
