    question

    I know I didn't. What I was seeking was if there was any guidelines for dating the second time other than what is taught to the youth. Thank you to everybody that answered.

    Husband no longer believes

    These comments jumped out on me. I don't think there is a big difference between marrying a person raised in church who jumps ship, or a new convert who falters. But you really do need to bring the Lord into what ever decision you make regarding the marriage. I do like the 3 requirements though. And going at it alone is hard, because the things you desire most (an eternal family) will be talked about at church.

    question

    If he is struggling to keep covenants of baptism now already, marriage outside of the church isn't going to help him. It will make it even harder to go.I'm not judging here, just thinking practically so I can get feedback from others who have been there.

    Favorite mainstream authors?

    If you don't mind self published, an excellent author is Sara V. Zook. I've been lucky enough to talk with her about her work, and she doesn't put sex in her books. She also hasn't had any swearing that many YA books go. I also try to blog book reviews, and I'm active on goodreads.

    Book Collecting

    I'm a book collector (avid reader). I've lost many boxes of books to a flood (that I was storing at my parents house in the basement) when I went away for some schooling. I am back to collecting, years later, and have found many many ebooks.

    question

    I am wondering, what, if anything, does the church say on a widow member marrying outside of the faith. I presume is the same as a single person - better not to. It frightens me that someone I know could lose out of a whole family -- late wife, child that died at the age of 5, and now multiple children and grandchildren he has in the eternities. I'd just like to know of someone else has been there, and what counsels exist with in the church about it. Thanks.

    Legal marijuana

    Well, in the case of my husband he would still be pulling smoke into his lungs. And lungs are important to me. For one thing, my grandmother died of lung cancer. And secondly, I have two nieces with cystic fibrosis. And third... marijuana smells really bad to me, so he's going to stink. (It's one thing that makes holidays with his family hard, well besides the language. They all vanish and it gets really bad smelling. Add in, they smoke tobacco too.) As for him using it for pain relief, that's between him and the Lord. I've had a long journey over the years coming to accept that. I voted to legalize medical marijuana in my state. (I think it should be totally legal, people have the right to choose and it bugs me they have lists of users. I think lists of growers and distributors is good enough at this point.) PS. I like your username too. I love stars.

    dating question

    I agree, but this person has lost his common sense as he struggles with the skeletons in his closet. I was seeking things that can help me point him in the right direction, with out being preachy.

    dating question

    To answer these: 1. No, she is not. (She has a live in boyfriend to boot.) 2. Again, no, she has a live in boyfriend. 3. My state doesn't recognize Common Law Marriages, but I was going on that she is living with her boyfriend as if married. I figured if they are boyfriend and girlfriend who live together, chances are they are sexually intimate, therefore "common law" married for this discussion. Thank you. I will check for a downloadable copy.
