Omg, please tell us more about your husband and this family you're marrying into, because I know not everyone in a religious group acts the same way, but all my experiences with Mormons have been terrible and I honestly don't know if I could marry someone who shares that belief system, but i'm sure you have good taste in men just from what i've seen on your blog, so obviously i've just had crazy bad luck and I really want to hear about your experiences!
My friends are always telling me stories about bad Mormons but I have never met one myself haha.
My impression of them is that they’re very friendly, overly so, have a shitload of kids, and their families are so huge, they have connections to fucking EVERYTHING.
And I’m a Buddhist, so as much as I don’t really agree with their beliefs, I accept that it’s important to them, and they do the same with me. They don’t make me go to church or pray, I barely even need to censor myself. Just because I don’t believe in God doesn’t make me a lesser person.
Though seriously, I can’t get over how huge the family is, and it is very intimidating and awkward. At social gatherings, I just follow my husband like a puppy and stay silent haha. I don’t know if the rest of the family is as lenient as my husband’s parents, so I have to watch myself more carefully. I don’t know if anyone will disown us since I can’t get married in a Mormon church. Sacrilegious!
Still, they’re very friendly and I’m sorry you’ve never met the good ones. :( I’m sure you’ll have better luck sometime!
