MTV Engaged and Underage(Props to Tom Grover for the Head’s up)

MTV is running a series called “Engaged and Underage” on underage marriages in the U.S. One of the couples they are spotlighting is a Mormon couple — she was raised in the church, he converted.

Within this episode, they explore how hard it is for non-LDS families to be excluded from the wedding ceremony in the LDS temple. It’s definitely an interesting Mormon story.  Some parts are QUITE painful.

Then return, and discuss. 🙂

P.S. Where do they find these people?!?!?!?!?!?
