He is truly my soulmate and I shudder to think that if I had not chosen to marry outside of the church, I would not have had this life with him. Their son grew up to become a temple president. BYU was once the perfect place to find a great young woman and get married. Don't spend money on somebody else' Wife. After his mission he lost faith on everything for some reasons. I decided to do the mormon thing and just not think about it too much right now. The church really needs to tailor to more partial LDS families, imho. I've luckily broken down my GF's defenses about the church a little bit. But this phase isn't going to be short.
