Single and Mormon? Come to the D.C.-area

Is the D.C.-area is home to a “little Utah” for singles?

The Washington Post reports Sunday that a newly opened Mormon church in Crystal City is devoted to unmarried Mormons.

The paper says it serves about 800 Mormons, which is the biggest population of single Mormons served by a church outside of Utah.

Some of the Mormons interviewed said they moved to the greater D.C.-area for the same reasons as non-Mormons: For careers. If they were in Utah, they’d likely be married by this stage in their life. But like others here, they’re putting off marriage to focus on careers.
