Things to know

Regularly read by 50,000+ readers in over 140 countries around the world, "Dear Bro Jo" is published several times a month.

This is column is just one guy's opinion, and while he does his best to keep what he thinks, says and writes in-line with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, "Dear Bro Jo" is not an LDS Church website. (And Sister Jo thinks you should know that he's sometimes wrong, and often way too opinionated for his own good.)

Dating a Pregnant Girl - Part 3

Dear Readers,

Last October I posted a letter from a young man who was dating a girl who was pregnant (by someone else). Then, the following week I posted part 2 (the letters had actually been sent to me a couple months apart - you all realize, I imagine, that most - not all, but most - "Dear Bro Jo" letters are posted quite a while after I actually correspond with the writers). In the second letter, the young man said that she had given the baby up for adoption (something that, as someone who was adopted, I have a lot of gratitude and admiration for), and they were dating, but with extreme caution.

Well, in case you were wondering how it all turned out, here's part three.

(You can read the first letter by clicking HERE, and jump to the second by clicking HERE.)

Dear Bro Jo,

Awhile back I emailed you asking for advice about a pregnant girl that I was dating. We continued dating and she gave her child up for adoption. Things progressed between us and now we are getting married. On (date withheld)! In the (location withheld) Temple!

I just wanted to say thank you for your advice and being a listening ear during a turbulent time in our relationship. Sometimes things really do have a happy ending.

Thanks Bro Jo!

Dear Smitten,

Congratulations to you both!

Sister Jo and I wish you every happiness.

- Bro Jo
