They usually have an activity Sunday night, FHE Monday night, institute Tuesday night, etc.Don’t get me wrong, I see nothing wrong with socializing.I define social norms as behaviors or cues within the LDS church that are often used as indicators of appropriate and inappropriate values, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors.Thus, it is doctrine that families can be together forever and that being sealed is an ordinance where we make sacred promises to God and our spouse, which can increase our relationship with God and bring about great blessings.Many raw vegans, raw vegetarians, and raw foodists are among our vegan single members and our vegetarian single members.Veggie Date is also a great place to meet like minded friends and activity partners including people who enjoy a healthy lifestyle, eating vegetarian food, vegan food, organic food, GMO free food, organic raw food, and GMO free raw food.Consequences of Marriage Being a Social Norm Here are a number of negative consequences that occur from marriage being viewed as a social norm in the church (in no particular order): Socializing Too Much Let me focus on the last point of socializing too much in greater detail.I believe that it is one’s extreme socializing that depletes the value of an LDS single, not the fact that they are single. Having lived in the “Provo scene” before, I understand how this works. They value socializing so much, that it is something that they compare amongst each other, essentially saying that “if I socialize more than you, then I am a cooler person,” or “if I don’t socialize very often, I am not a very cool person.” And, many of the LDS singles wards feed into this.
But, because marriage is highly valued in the LDS culture, it has become an indicator of one’s values, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors such that if people are not married in the LDS culture, they are viewed as being of less value and having inappropriate values, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors.Veggie Date is considered by many to be the premier vegetarian dating site in the world.Our members include vegans, lacto vegetarians, ovo vegetarians, pescatarians (fish and vegetable eaters), semi-vegetarian, those who are becoming vegetarian and macrobiotic eaters.But I do see a problem if this becomes the currency of one’s value.It gets to the point that essentially people are socializing at least three hours a night, seven days a week, justifying this behavior that they are “investing in a future relationship that should lead to the next step in my progression, marriage.” Even further, I believe that most people in the church looks at this as a good thing. Now, I recognize that I am going out on a limb here, but let’s try to put ourselves in God’s shoes.Consider the difference that the entire population of LDS singles could make if they just gave 10% of their socializing time (roughly two hours a week) to serving others, or even more, just two evenings a week (2 of 7) or six hours a week.The message that I want to get across here is that perhaps it doesn’t matter whether we are married or single.WEDDING DRESSES ♥ AN OVERVIEW: If you’ve set foot inside of a formalwear department store or a nationwide bridal retailer lately, you know how difficult it is to find wedding and bridesmaids gowns that come anywhere close to satisfying Latter-day Saint standards of modesty.LDS brides need to eliminate a lot of dresses from the running at first glance.One of the most beautiful doctrines of the LDS church is eternal families.This doctrine states that couples and children can be sealed together through the priesthood in a temple for time and all eternity.
