Why do some women feel unequal in the church? While this was not an exhaustive list, it made apparent many of the gender disparities that we often take for granted. Another way to make inequality apparent is to talk about privilege. An important step in lessening, mitigating and ending this discrimination is acknowledging it. It is sometimes easier to see that others have different gender roles or even that women have some disadvantages.
The truly difficult thing to recognize is the concomitant truth:
LDS Dating Culture August 28, by WVS Ever since various general authorities started drawing attention to the dating scene among Young Adults, I’ve taken an interest in the current status of dating, especially among LDS people, but also in general.
Not Measuring Up I have some family members that are fairly well known in the Mormon community. My grandfather has written several books that many Mormons use to supplement their scripture study. His grandfather was in the first presidency. My aunt and her husband both teach at BYU. My cousin has acted in some well-known Mormon movies. When I was growing up, my dad seemed to be the local authority on Church doctrine.
If anyone had a question concerning the Church or the scriptures, they would go straight to him. This biological connection to virtual religious royalty is apparently supposed to be some indication that I’m a super intellectual spiritual giant who’s good at everything. Please try not to be disappointed when I reveal that this is not the case. In fact, don’t even be surprised. Yes, some people have been terribly shocked, and I think offended, by this truth.

According to Time magazine — and the new book Date-Onomics: The older they get, author Jon Birger claims, the less likely they are to ever get married. So why the imbalance?

By Joseph Smith is the founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Church members believe him to be the first prophet since New Testament times.
Rethinking the Judicial Decision – Dan Vogel Urim and Thummim Some accounts refer to the seer stones as a pair of stones set in eye frames to resemble spectacles Joseph himself writing in his own hand, …the Lord had prepared spectticke spectacles for to read the Book therefore I commenced translating the characters… History, circa Summer , The Joseph Smith Papers.
Other accounts refer to a single seer stone by itself, such as this one by Emma Smith, saying that the translating process had Joseph sitting with his face buried in his hat, with the stone in it, and dictating hour after hour with nothing between us… Emma Smith Bidamon Interview with Joseph Smith III, February Published as “Last Testimony of Sister Emma,” Saints’ Herald 26 1 October Apparently the spectacle version was with the plates in the stone box. Some accounts state that they were only used for translating just the first pages of the Book of Mormon and were then taken from Joseph by the angel along with the plates, although there is no direct evidence that Joseph used the spectacle version of the Urim and Thummim for translating even the first pages of the BOM.
The accounts were reported in some newspapers but the reporters likely confused the spectacle version with the seer stone version as many Latter-day Saints did. The angel returned the plates but not the spectacle “Urim and Thummim”. After this, Joseph used the single seer stone that he had in his possession from before the Book of Mormon plates were retrieved.
However, Oliver Cowdery, who was scribe for nearly all of the Book of Mormon except the lost pages only gives account of the Urim and Thummim which he always equates with the “Nephite Interpreters. See the section immediately below titled, “Seer stone, spectacles, interpreters and Urim and Thummim confusion,” for more problems. We know of no historian or Biblical scholar who claims that the Biblical Urim and Thummim had anything to do with “translating languages,” or that they resembled “giant spectacles” as BOM witnesses claimed.
Maybe the term “Urim and Thummim” gave the seer stone an air of Biblical authority to it so perhaps that’s why people started using that term after

Go Forward with Faith A date is a planned activity that allows a young man and a young woman to get to know each other better. In cultures where dating is acceptable, it can help you learn and practice social skills, develop friendships, have wholesome fun, and eventually find an eternal companion. You should not date until you are at least 16 years old. When you begin dating, go with one or more additional couples.
Avoid going on frequent dates with the same person. Developing serious relationships too early in life can limit the number of other people you meet and can perhaps lead to immorality. Invite your parents to become acquainted with those you date. Choose to date only those who have high moral standards and in whose company you can maintain your standards. Show More Plan dating activities that are safe, positive, and inexpensive and that will help you get to know each other.
Go only to places where you can maintain your standards and remain close to the Spirit. Young men generally take the initiative in asking for and planning dates. Always be kind and respectful when you ask for a date or when you accept or decline one. While on a date, be courteous as you listen to others and express your own feelings.
Talking Walls: Confessions of a Single Mormon Girl
June 1, Author: I have a particular interest in this as I have a daughter in her late 30s that was widowed last year due to cancer, and she lives in Utah County. The article is partly a book review of Date-onomics, a book that breaks down dating trends by demographics.
We started this blog with hopes that the pressure to record some dating experiences will get us out there having some interesting things to write about. We welcome any comments and insights as this is also some good group therapy and, hopefully, just plain fun.
Share this article Share Mr Weed, a family and marriage specialist, has never had sex with a man but claimed he is certainly homosexual and not bisexual. Sexual orientation is defined by attraction, not by experience. In my case, I am attracted sexually to men. I’ve never been turned on by a Victoria’s Secret commercial in my entire life. Josh and Lolly Weed have been happily married for ten years despite his sexual orientation The blog post, which is in part written by Lolly, explores everything from when Mr Weed discovered he was gay – he was ’11 or 12′ – to why he wants to ‘grow old’ with his wife.
He added that despite his love and attraction to his wife, he is gay and will never become a bisexual. He admitted that he was forced to reveal his secret after he began sharing personal information with his work clients. She wrote in one of the blog’s most moving paragraphs: I wanted to marry Josh Weed because I loved the man that he was. I loved everything that made him him. I knew that we had the kind of relationship that could work through hard trials and circumstances.
I did not choose to marry someone who is gay. I have never regretted it.

Kenya[ edit ] Polygynous marriage was preferred among the Logoli and other Abalulya sub ethnic groups. Taking additional wives was regarded as one of the fundamental indicators of a successfully established man. Large families enhanced the prestige of Logoli men. Logoli men with large families were also capable of obtaining justice, as they would be feared by people, who would not dare to use force to take their livestock or other goods from them. Interviews with some of the contemporary Logoli men and women who recently made polygynous marriages yielded data which suggest that marrying another wife is usually approached with considerable thought and deliberation by the man.
It may or may not involve or require the consent of the other wives and prospective wife’s parents.
I will freely admit that I was a member of one of those sites some years ago. I have forgotten which one. I had very nice email correspondences with some very nice women, and one very unhappy experience meeting someone face-to-face.
