I have feeling you stopped pursuing anyone unlikely to go for you.
I am engaged to marry a surgeon next fall. That said, Mormons have learned to have fun without alcohol and often have to wait until drinkers are well-oiled and loosened up to join in the dopey-ness.
If your spouse thinks 8 is too young to get baptized, are you all right with waiting until they are older.
I'm dating a Mormon girl right now but we both understand that it is most likely isn't going to last long.
