Dear 100 Hour Board,
With the change in missionary age, do you think that the likelihood of relationships surviving the two years will increase? Especially if both of them serve missions?
Not a chance.
PS - I'm just kidding. There are tons of girls that intend to wait that end up meeting, dating and marrying other guys. If girls are focused on serving missions while they wait instead, they will be removed from other guys and therefore still available. It seems possible that more waiting-for-missionary relationships could work out because of this, but who knows.
