Be prepared for divorce.
I made a conscious decision to marry outside the church for my own reasons.
While that is the case sometimes, it Is much more of an exception than a rule. Would you rather give up the prospect of being married in the temple, the assurance of children being raised in the church, and parts of Mormon culture for your boyfriend, or a great man for your beliefs.
It really can be that simple.
After my divorce I dated Mormon men в disastrous. He has no vices, is the happiest person I know, is a healthy role model of manhood for my teen daughter and loves me to the depth of his soul.
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.
