["Young adults who drink alcohol may want to consider the longer-term
consequences for marriage,"]Cause and effect, as always. It
silly to think that drinking when you're young is going to impact marriage.
It's obvious that those who are heavy drinkers are using drinking as a
coping device. They obviously have deeper issues that continue to manifest with
age and in a marriage.I drink, and i socialize with people who
drink, but I avoid "problem drinkers" and "recovering
alcoholics" equally. Even though they don't drink anymore, they still
have all the unpleasant qualities that inspired the alcohol abuse in the first
place. Usually they haven't treated the underlying problem and have just
chosen a new vice to hide behind, whether its prescription drugs, blaming
others, or, often, religion. They then decide its their opportunity, and
obligation, to share their new vice, unsolicited, with others.Social
drinking is a common, and cross-cultural, way for people to build relationships,
including friendships, work relationships, and business contacts
@Hutterite"Alcohol bad, marriage (not same sex) good. Everyone
should be mormon. Got it."---------Read an article on a
pro-LDS newspaper. Make snarky remarks about it. Everyone should be anti-Mormon.
