OH Henry!- He's nice, honest, but forgetful. He prefers to watch TV rather than have Family Home Evening. He is not very committed to the Church. If he stays up late on Saturday night, he doesn't mind missing church, but he will go at least half of the time and take the kids to activities and chaperone dances. He married you in the Temple, but you haven't been there together in several years.
Snickers- Anytime you want to talk about the Church, he makes wisecracks about Joseph Smith or things that are hard for him to believe. He's never read the Book of Mormon. He is a good provider. He is a great kisser. He likes to tell jokes, which are pretty funny, unless there are about the Church. He is great with the kids, and your kids adore him, but they are adopting his attitude about the Church. You had a beautiful wedding in a garden. You hoped he would join the Church because he played basketball with the missionaries on their P day, but now you think that maybe it was just because he liked basketball.

M&M- This guy is very ambitious. He goes to work at 7 am and comes home at 9 pm. Sometimes he works seven days a week, even if he doesn't have to. He even brings his work along on family vacations. You never date anymore. He is too tired and busy for that. You are fairly well off and you have a nice house, but you would rather that he spent more time with you and the kids. What really breaks your heart is that your children ask, " When is daddy coming back?" You got married in the temple, but you wonder if he remembers what that means, since he doesn't seem to value his family here on earth.

Sometimes he surprises you by bringing home people for dinner without giving much warning, if any. He is a great father and takes his kids on outings with Dad once a month or so.

He drinks and suggests that once or twice wouldn't really hurt you, but he isn't pushy. Most of the other women there don't have children or have only one or two. They wonder what you do all day with 5 children and no nanny.
Big Hunk- This guy was a quarterback at your college. He joined the church while he was there. You introduced yourself to him on his 1st Sunday in the student ward. He was good looking and buff. You got married before he had been a member for a year and you are anxiously preparing to go to the temple together. Its hard for him to go to church every Sunday since now he is playing for the NFL. He works a lot of Sundays and Mondays, but he still manages to get to sacrament meeting most of the time and he reads his scriptures a lot on Sundays. He tells you that when he retires from the game, he will do charity work, and have Sundays off. You are well off and he doesn't mind paying tithing even though it is a huge chuck of money.

He doesn't know what to do with his life and he doesn't really care. He spends his time hanging out with a few friends, laughing at old jokes, and watching people. He is a member, but rarely goes. He likes to sing and he could be good looking if he took better care of himself. He wrote romantic things to you in letters and you thought that they were all true. You felt sure that if you could just influence him for good, he could turn his life around. Unfortunately, you married him before he turned it around and he still hasn't changed.
Milky Way- This guy has spectacular dreams. he wants to be a movie star. He wants to be unbelievably rich and tremendously famous. He wants to own a huge, richly decorated home. He also sees himself as a very successful player in the NBA, or maybe the NFL. Self-esteem is not one of his weaknesses. However, he lacks a plan which would help him reach him dreams, so they are merely fantasies, not really goals. His reality is that he hasn't even graduated from college or vocational school, even though he has attended college for 10 years. You married him, believing in him and his dreams, but as it is now, you're still living the poor student life, If if weren't for your job, you wouldn't have any money at all.

So he stepped in and asked you for the next slow song. You have a lot in common and felt totally comfortable with each other, in an exciting sort of way. When you returned to your friends, you were almost out of breath and deliriously happy. You exchanged phone numbers, dated for 8 months, met each others families, and got engaged. Of course, you married in your favorite temple. Four children later, you are still madly in love and very happy.
Hot Tamales- This guy was voted "most attractive man" his senior year of high school. He knows he is good looking and considers himself a valuable commodity.
