I suppose we could have worked harder at it had we been able to fulfill our dream of being grandpa and grandma, but that seems highly improbable now, so I suppose we move on. No, the bible belt wouldn't have worked. We weren't looking for religion coming here. I meant nothing disrespectful by the comment of the religion here seeming to influence the laws, it was simply an observation on my part. And as far as the attitude of some of the people here, I suppose it's not fair. As they say different strokes. We came from and area in Texas that was farm country, and everybody had a wave and a smile, so whose to say if we had moved into a more rural area, it might have been the same here? Maybe my comments are influenced by the dissapointment of our situation, I don't know. But life goes on.
Ok thank you for the explanation.
Honestly I moved to Northern Utah with my wife and there is lots of farm country and nice people here. Nobody knew if we're LDS or not but everyone welcomed us. It depends on the area and people I think. I met some non-LDS people that were extremely strict and churchy sometimes so you can't generalize.

Just take up Ballroom Dancing and you'll be fine in Utah County, you can Foxtrot, Argentine Tango, or Waltz any indifferences away in no time, and you'll have more friends than you'll know what to do with, LDS or not, no matter....

Of course, it's a stereotype, but I've found NewYorkers' honesty refreshing... and a lot of Utahns are friendly even if it's gracefully.
Luckily you can dance in any religion!... I think. lol

There is a meetup.com group of wine drinkers in utah county. they usually hold events at people's homes. i know they go out to dinner sometimes, but most of the events are low-key and cheap. : ) there haven't been any events lately but we'd be into going to one if you want to host it/plan it, like meet at a park or something? not sure where a good spot would be!
