Plural dating plural dating polygeny lds
We have many friends that belong to the various groups, and we respect them, and we associate with them frequently.
In some cultures, parents still closely supervise courtship and arrange children's marriages, but youth worldwide have increasing choices in dating and mate selection.
I consider myself to be an independent fundamentalist Mormon.
Because of the belief that people should be married and the doctrine that they can maintain marital ties throughout eternity, Latter-day Saints take dating and courtship more seriously than those for whom marriage has less religious significance.This is where an individual has more than one spouse and everyone is in agreement. Polygamy is a choice and a way of life for thousands of people worldwide.Warren Jeffs' arrest on charges related to his leadership of a polygamist sect comes, coincidentally, less than two weeks after a Salt Lake City rally at which the teen-aged children of polygamists defended the practice, which is also known as plural marriage. We did a lot of things, like writing books, that we enjoyed doing together. I know some of the people who have left his community, but I am glad to say I am not associated with his leadership in any way. I understand that he has exercised a lot of control over his people and has condoned and even married underage women.But it seems to me, from what I've heard, that they don't have a local leader down in Colorado City, and so I don't know if there will be other leaders who will come up and take Warren's place. What is the difference between fundamentalist Mormons and mainstream LDS members?We [fundamentalists] do not have one particular organized church. The LDS church, of course, had it [polygamy] as one of their beliefs and practices in the early years of the church.
