I was engaged at the time, to someone else. I remember this moment clearly. We were at the river. I said to Henry, "After I'm married, you'll still be my close friend, right? We'll still email and talk and text and stuff, right?" He said, "Of course not. That's for husbands and wives. If I see you, I'll be friendly to you, but our close friendship will end when you have a husband. That's the way it has to be." And I realized he was right! And that I'd lose him unless I married him.
We Catholics should be ashamed that most Mormons have a better understanding of marriage, family and romance than we do. Especially since it's the one thing they've kept in their religion that is utterly and totally Catholic.
