There are plenty of Mormons who date non-Mormons. I know several who have married non-Mormons too.

Every woman I dated in Utah when single was LDS. They were generally uptight when around their families but, out alone on a date they were... well... regular women.

I married an LDS woman - as did my father and brother. When in Rome...

That is right. It is easier to marry the same religion but not necessary.

Works the same way with Jewish people. Most do but not all.
But of course with Mormons everyone knows it better.

Oh ya, at least when I went. The frats are really regulated by the school don't even bother with their parties, talk to people, there are tons of parties in the neighborhoods west of campus, in the avenues(below 11th ave) and sugarhouse.

I found these stats from sltrib:
A look at the counties with the highest and lowest concentration of Mormons in 2011.
Top 5
Morgan County
Population 9,685
LDS percentage 86.1%

Rich County
Population 2,303
LDS percentage 83.3%

Utah County
Population 530,499
LDS percentage 81.2%

Sevier County
Population 20,971
LDS percentage 77.3%

Box Elder County
Population 50,290
LDS percentage 77.2%

Bottom 5
Grand County
Population 9,325
LDS percentage 26.5%

Summit County
Population 37,594
LDS percentage 30.8%

San Juan County
Population 14,825
LDS percentage 39.6%

Carbon County
Population 21,318
LDS percentage 45.9%

Salt Lake County
Population 1,048,985
LDS percentage 51.4%

I worked for a company that was Mormon owned, and they were probably the best people I'd ever worked for. I'm a Protestant, and that held zero weight on how I was treated.

Is it true if you're not LDS and you apply for a job in Utah that you can pretty much kiss any chances goodbye of getting the job even if you're qualified? I just heard this again the other day and I've heard this dozens of times. I hear that non-Mormons are locked out.

-Cheers!

I'm retired now, but in the forty-two years I was working here in Salt Lake City, I was never once asked if I was a Mormon (which I am). A prospector once asked me a question that would have let him know whether I was or not. I answered the question "correctly" and was NOT hired. Roughly half of the Salt Lake City workforce is not Mormon. If non-Mormons were discriminated against in the way you suggest, we'd have a huge unemployment rate, and not one of the lowest ones in the country.

If this were true, how is half the population non LDS? I am sure we are all not independently wealthy...
