From about 1700 a worldwide movement perhaps described as the "empowerment of the individual" took hold, leading towards greater emancipation of women and equality of individuals.Men and women became more equal politically, financially, and socially in many nations.Because so many people ask us about the “Mormon Rules” I’ve put together a list of the many things that are required of Mormons in order to be a faithful member in “good standing”.1.Pay 10% of your Gross (before tax) income, aka Tithing.
(You take them off for only the obvious reasons like bathing and intimacy but put them right back on.)6. Preach to your non-Mormon friends, family and co-workers and try to get them to become Mormon.10.Accordingly, there was little need for a temporary trial period such as dating before a permanent community-recognized union was formed between a man and a woman.While pair-bonds of varying forms were recognized by most societies as acceptable social arrangements, marriage was reserved for heterosexual pairings and had a transactional nature, where wives were in many cases a form of property being exchanged between father and husband, and who would have to serve the function of reproduction.College is not considered a priority until after a mission has been served.12.Women are expected to marry only a man who has served a mission (referred to as a “Returned Missionary”.)13. 3 hours (yes, three hours) on Sunday, plus additional meetings for many other things. Men should be wearing suits or at the very least a white dress shirt and tie.15.
In addition, contribute extra amounts to various church funds such as Fast Offering, Missionary fund, Building fund, etc.2. Mormons are taught that when their “prophet” speaks it is coming from God.
