Hello everyone! Welcome to August!
Today Angie and I discuss dating for people from more conservative/traditional backgrounds. We were both raised Mormon and I lived in Dubai for 7 years, so when I saw a question from one of our viewers about advice for dating outside of one’s religion/culture I was SUPER excited to broach the topic with Angie.
In this video we discuss our experiences with LDS rules about dating (yes, I finally learn the meaning of “heavy petting”) and our experiences dating outside of the religion we were raised with…i.e. dating (and marrying) Jewish men.
