New Video on Mixed-Faith relashonships

Discussions about negotiating relationships between faithful LDS believers and the apostates who love them. This applies in particular to mixed-faith marriages, but relations with children, parents, siblings, friends, and ward members is very welcome.

New Video on Mixed-Faith relashonships

What does everyone think of the new video the church put out about mixed faith repalshonships?

Priorities, loyalty - a faith crisis seems to bring out what is most important to people... do you see your spouse as a person? love the person? ... or do they love the idea of being married, the idea of a belief system...

We've got a thread going on about this at viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3663

Personally I think it's a good start in trying to keep marriages together, but as with everything else I feel like they're reacting to the problems they created long ago.

But I am also looking at it through the lens of being the non-believer. It just seems like this video focuses on the believing spouse and how great the church can be to lean on. It also picks a non-believing spouse who claims he never had a testimony, which makes it easier to dismiss his reasons for leaving.

It's a start... I'll give them a few points for that.

Oh. thanks, I did not see it over there.

I agree, it is not a typical example of a non-believing spouse - the believer is made out to be the "victim".

I am the non-believing spouse as well. The church broke its covenant with me, the church lied to me, I am not the evil disloyal dishonest one here.
