Well I know certain restaurants close at 10 around here. Some of the bars in certain counties in Maryland used to close at 1. I think the bars bars (around here) are something u have to pay a membership to get into.

You are in for a culture shock. Bars aren't the only thing around here with (to you) strange hours. Many restaurants, other than chains, are closed on Sundays, as are many other types of stores. I am used to the bare-flesh-hanging-out look of New Orleans but I rarely see that here (and TG as much of that flesh was not something I wanted to see). I haven't seen a muscle shirt in a long time (not talking parks here, just stores, on the streets, etc). Daisey dukes are not popular. Women don't wear tons of make-up nor tons of jewelry. This is the most red state of the red states!

YEP. I am almost 37 and have an 8 year old, but man, I see 24 or 25 year olds with several young kids. It would have put me over the edge to have that many young kids that young myself.
I am NOT knocking the people that do. My mom started having kids young (and we are not LDS), but personally, I never could have done it.
I have found myself wondering how the young couples could afford the expensive house, expensive car, with a few young kids and the mom stays home. What do they know that I don't??

I am careful when I see an older girl out with younger kids to assume that she is their mom. I am the oldest in my family and my mom had my last brother when I was 15. When he was 1 or 2, I would hold him for my mom when she had to do something (try on clothes, run to retrieve a forgotten item, ect). SO many people assumed that he was my son, that I promised myself that I would never assume that of anyone else. With the large families in Utah, it is quite possible that she could have been an older sister, or even a nanny...
The young women that I spoke about in my previous posts actually lived in my neighborhood, so I KNEW, without a doubt, that they are the moms.

Very old joke here: Who is the most likely woman to be pregnant at a Utah wedding? The bride's mother!
