As such, faith should be made a focal point of conversations had early on in a relationship with any non-Mormons.While beliefs differ some, the essential way of living for Mormons, people of most other religions, and even non-religious individuals who simply strive to be good, is not too drastically different.Sexuality is viewed as a God-given gift that is not to be abused or mistreated for the sake of fulfilling unnecessary ephemeral desires.

Sifting through “weekend” Christians, who probably hear the word “Mormon” and immediately lump it in with the likes of Heaven's Gate type psychopaths can get old fast; you don't have to deal with this type of misinformed individual in Utah, where even those who don't belong to the Church know a bit about it and its members courtesy of their surroundings.
