I’ve fallen madly in love with a Mormon boy. He’s 22 years old, and I’m 18. He’s a wonderful person. I’m not Mormon, but I do read the Book of Mormon online. I want to know if our relationship could go anywhere. Also, does your religion care about the difference in our ages? Thanks in advance.

One Response to “I fell in love with the Mormon”

The concept of a united family that progresses together spiritually is at the core of Latter-day Saint doctrine.

Hi friend. I’m happy you’re reading the Book of Mormon and that you want to learn more about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Religious unity is very important in a relationship. Many people first learn about our church through family and loved ones. I encourage you to continue to investigate our beliefs. Why don’t you go with your boyfriend to church sometime to see how we worship? This church has been a great blessing in my life and in the lives of millions of other people who have joined. It could certainly enrich your life as well.

I also recently wrote an article about the importance of religious unity in a romantic relationship, in case it helps you.

The difference in your ages is not large, and both of you are now adults, so that really shouldn’t be a problem.
