TBM Mother Refuses to Attend Her Own Daughters Non-Temple Wedding

Someone very close to me had to make her vows to her Catholic fiancee with her Mormon mother absent.

Why? Her mother refused to support a non-temple wedding since that is what Satan wants. This persons mother is one of the most extreme TBM's I have ever known (yes, I know her).

You've got to hand it to her for standing up for what she believes, but damn! How often does your daughter get married? And whatever happened to family values? I have often wondered what the fiancee thought about that. Being from a Catholic family, I am sure that they are all just baffled by it.

This persons mother is staunch Mormon and will defend it no matter the cost... no matter who is offended. The rules and commandments of TSCC must be obeyed and she'll see to it that you obey them all!

Just slightly extreme? This is what Mormonism does to people who take it seriously.

I guess Mormonism is about excluding family from weddings no matter where they take place!

I have been reading your blog for a little while now and I must say KUDOS to you!

I am so angry at the church right now. I have thought about blogging about my feelings and posting those feelings on my personal blog, but then I think my parents would stop reading it. =)

Thank you for being brave and sharing your thoughts!

Heather, I'm glad that I've been able to help you. If you'd like to write about your experience with Mormonism but don't want to publish it on your blog, I'll be happy to publish them here for you. I have found that writing about it helps me vent my anger and frustration with the church.

I would love to write some things! After the holiday's I will put my story together and see if its something you would want to publish.

This is really sad, but you tend to see it all over. I wasn't raised Mormon, but Southern Baptist, and I used to see this kind of thing happening all the time. Not usually this extreme, but there was one man in the church my family went to that disowned his daughter for marrying "outside the church." Mormons, Baptists, Catholics, when will these people see what kind of crap they're eating and feeding to others!?

Yes, it happens everywhere. Just imagine how much more love there would be in the world if religion did not exist!
