Utah’s dating pool dilemma
Conflict between LDS city government and non-LDS federal authorities stationed in Fort Douglas and Sugar House often continued. Most famously, Salt Lake.
Long before this Wasatch mountain valley was home to over a million people, a bustling downtown , multiple universities, a dedicated ski scene , and a smattering of hip walkable neighborhoods , it was a peaceful grassland with a stunning alpine skyline. The land that we now call Utah was first inhabited by the ancient Pueblo people, who are sometimes called Anasazi. Later on, the Ute tribe, which the state is named for, settled in the area.

Finding a suitable non-religious, educated professional partner to marry and have children with fairly soon is quite important to me. Anyone out there been in the same boat?

A number of articles, books, and lengthy essays have been written during the past century and a half on Mormon immigration and emigration by land and sea. Before steam vessels replaced sailing ships as the most popular passenger carriers, European Mormon converts were propelled by wind across the Atlantic and then traversed the plains by wagon, on foot, or by handcart.
During the trail years —68 , it took several months to reach the Salt Lake Valley. Often, European converts who left early in the year did not complete their journey until fall. The average time to reach the East Coast from Liverpool was estimated at thirty-eight days, and the journey from Liverpool to New Orleans typically took fifty-four days.
