I was wondering what ceremony long white underclothes is used by men in the Mormon religion. My boyfriend is a Mormon, but won’t explain it to me. I am Catholic.

Dear Raven,
The inner garments that are worn by all of the members of the Mormon Church who have been endowed in the holy temples are related to the temple ceremonies, and therefore as so sacred that they are not even talked about outside of the temples. That is why your boyfriend won’t explain to you their sacred meaning. So I would suggest that you let well enough alone and don’t tempt your boyfriend to violate sacred covenants by discussing such things outside of the temple
