The premises of this post are simple:
1. Mormons can be really weird or strange (read: royally peculiar). This isn’t necessarily a bad thing at all, but
2. Married Mormons can double the weird
3. Newly married student Mormons can re-define the weird completely.
This post was suggested to me by Friends of the Blog who were discussing some of the strange stories they heard from people who had lived in married student housing on LDS campuses. Like most college campus housing units, these units aren’t usually designed for, uh, privacy. All kinds of interesting/unusual/creepy goings-on can be encountered in married student housing. In one story, for example, were accounts of couples who would sing hymns together after lovemaking.
No, seriously. Look, I didn’t say there was any conceivably good reason for this. It’s not like we could interview the post-coital choir as to what could possibly possess them to sing “I Am a Child of God” after sex. What? Haha, yeah, “How Firm a Foundation” is even better.
Ok, that’s enough.
Tell us about your experiences in married or family student housing, LDS as well as non-LDS. Anything particularly memorable?
