A bridal shower is a gift-giving party held for a bride-to-be in anticipation of her wedding. The history of the custom is rooted not necessarily for the provision of goods for the upcoming matrimonial home, but to provide goods and financial assistance to ensure the wedding may take place. The custom of the bridal shower is said to have grown out of earlier dowry practices, when a poor woman's family might not have the money to provide a dowry for her, or when a father refused to give his daughter her dowry because he did not approve of the marriage. The earliest stories about these events have been known to originate in Brussels , Belgium around A frequently quoted legend traces the origin of this practice to the 16th or 17th Century Netherlands. However, there are also parallels with many dowry practices and the United States colonial or hope chest trousseau custom. This was a feast held before the wedding day, at which the bride made beer and sold it to the guests at a high price.

I was sure I was just over sensitive until I read your posts. I believe rules are to be obeyed. Raising our children as believers is proving to be very tricky. Now I feel sadness for losing out because of fear, and a cult mindset. No tactless posts generalizing gender.
I believe when you die, you die, and you live on in memories and hearts. As someone born and raised in the church this has been very difficult to moderate and there is some social pressure to become more involved. Btw, you bringing up CES letter shit before thanksgiving will guarantee a very awkward time with the GF and probably the family for the day. Instead, I found someone outside the cult and we've been married almost 32 years She's looking for a dedicated priesthood holder who will take her to the temple. I have been pretty much a single mother most of that time. My experience has been that personal similarities and differences are a bigger element than cultural differences. Its been over a year and I don't know what to do. Thank you for this blog.
