    I am grateful for the leaders of this church and their words of inspiration and encouragement.

    I believe that no person can judge if LDS and non-LDS people are unequally yoked in marriage, or that that marriage is against God’s word. I think being unequally yoked is much more about how much each person in the marriage puts into the relationship. Interfaith marriages may face more difficulties than others and may require more effort at communication. Should they divorce? I don’t believe so, unless there is abuse, lack of fidelity, or abandonment as discussed in this video. Just my opinion.

    I appreciate so much having this topic so directly and yet lovingly addressed. I know, first hand, about selfishness and how it masks itself as “taking care of number one” as I was the culprit.

    I don’t get it why have marriage. Its not good for man because laws favor woman. besides marriage has gone corrupt and is no longer a sacred thing but a legal thing that can take our success away. If you guys get married get prenups left and right to protect yourself when the temptation comes. But why start in the first place?

    We had a man to come to our church and prophecy to a young man who to marry. He has been married to this lady for 16 yrs, but, from what he’s told me, he doesn’t love her. Should he stay with this lady or move on. She knows by his actions that his love for her isn’t truly there. The reason they stay together is because of their children and because they are Christians….Should they stay together and be miserable or divorce for “PEACE” sake?

    In a marriage, is texting/flirting about meeting at a club the same as cheating/having sex with another?

    c’est dommage les divorces..!
    ,mais je pense que l’harmonie entre l’homme et la femme était déjà brisé des Adam & Eve, quand Ève a mangé le fruit du bien & mal, des cette moment l’harmonie entre la femme et l’homme était déjà brisé…

  17. NavajoJoe66 says:

    Why doesn’t he talk about hasty marriages? A lot of divorces are because of people marrying too hastily and not knowing each other very well. It is better to divorce than to live a life in misery. You only get one life.

    I solemnly agree with this message. 🙂 haha

  19. SneakyLoveTricks says:

    A beautiful message of hope and understanding. While I am not a Mormon, I can testify that looking to divorce as the “First Solution” to ending personal unhappiness will NOT result in satisfaction.

    Instead of looking for answers in court, maybe we should try building bridges at home?

    Good luck to you. Been there. My divorce was final February. I’m doing better. Not anxious to date but am the Singles Adult rep so I will be going to the Singles activities now. I study the scriptures a few times a day and THAT makes all the difference.

    All the best to you. I am taking this time to recover from the trauma of my past marriage, get to know myself, serve in the temple, etc. Some day I will be ready to be in a good relationship. But not yet.

    @Felipecabesas, I have been happily married for almost 5 years. Married life is wonderful! It is nice to come home to the arms of those you love, and who love you. Marriage provides a way for those involved to find ways to serve one another; to support one another in trials and troubles. Marriage provides security. If I were asked, “If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?” I would go home. Don’t get a prenup Have faith that you will have a successful marriage, and then work.
