I have a mormon family living on my block and they have like 5 kids. I have heard the jokes that mormons have large families, but is it really true? How do they afford it? Is that why utah has such high bankrupsy rates? On that note, How do they ever finish college while making all those kids? Most people I knew who get pregnant in college never finished. Sorry if this seems like dumb things to ask, but I look at them and their two brand new SUV's and wonder either they were really lucky, have rich relatives, or what I think is the most likely answer, up to their eyeballs in debt.
Its kind of a shocking thing to see considering that there are so many young people opting to stay childfree and focus on their careers, and when I see something like that, well, kind of goes against the norm for young people nowadays. I know I have busted my backside off and am not middle class yet. How do they do it? Does the mormon church do like Russia and hand out checks for every little kid a couple makes or do they just threaten with stuff like childfree people make baby jesus cry?
