I have a tendency to be overly sensative emotionally and the trauma of being forced to choose between someone I love and want to spend the rest of my with and Eternal Mormon Celestial Salvation caused me extensive emotional damage that I have struggled with ever since. These are also only the American statistics. The church will be in your bedroom, finances, and all your decisions. By the way I work full time about 60 hours a week with my company and seem to never miss anything for my kid and can do all his bullshit also. There are many catholic families with these three main ethnic groups within it.
