Actually, Mormon families are shrinking, just like those outside the Church, but they will always be larger than families outside Mormondom. Who knows, but I think it was especially hard for the moms of young men. I think the secret to a successful marriage and a successful family is to respect each other's space and to enjoy all the good times no matter how trivial they are and to foucs on the positive aspects of the marriage an family life.

But, when you're married to a doctor, know that doctors don't sacrifice for their marriages. If you are a believer and are willing to go, then well and good. She's a shell of her former self and it breaks by heart to this day. Men and women must be willing to accept what they know to be true. I am dating a wonderful man, amazing.
