julianne_hough_mormonJulianne Hough is an American professional ballroom dancer, country music singer, and actress. She is best known for being one of the professional dancers on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. She has won the TV competition twice, the first time was season 4 with partner Apolo Anton Ohno and then again season 5 with Helio Castroneves. Hough has also appeared in the following movies:Burlesque, Footloose, Rock of Ages, Safe Haven and Paradise.

Julianne Hough was born in Orem, Utah. She is the youngest of five children. Her parents are active members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and she grew up in a Mormon household. Her father is Bruce Hough, twice chairman of the Utah Republican Party, and her brother is professional dancer Derek Hough.

In an interview with The New York Post, Hough described her childhood: “No sex before marriage, no drinking, no caffeine, no smoking, no swear words, no R-rated movies.”

When Hough first came to Hollywood, she still did not drink, but she eventually changed her ways. She was later asked in the interview what her views on religion are now. She said, “I’m not practicing, but I’m so glad I was raised Mormon.”

    You don’t live with Brian Sechrist for ANY length of time and retain your virginity (author not included!).
    Not worthy but knowingly violating the chastity provision of temple attendance, carries a longer and deeper period of personal repentance before submitting yourself to the bishop for re-interview. I know that I would be suspicious of someone who had her history and comes to church for three months and desires an interview. That could put the kibosh on marriage day plans already in place. If she had a civil marriage and maintained active church membership it would be a faster trip to the temple for them. That is, IF her husband is baptized and is equally active. My credentials are that I was privileged to serve in the bishopric of six bishops.

    She lied in changing her stance in this interview, or this article and that interview is a few years old, because there’s another more recent article where she’s talking about her upcoming wedding. In that interview she states the following:

    “In Mormon culture, three months is a long time to be engaged, but we plan on being together forever, so we have time.”

    So basically, what she’s saying is that they plan on getting married in the Mormon temple where they tell their members that they will be married for time and all eternity, and they must remain abstinent from sex before they’re married, otherwise they cannot be married in the temple where they believe they will be married forever.

    It doesn’t surprise me that she lied about her activity in Mormonism just for her fan base and approval ratings, considering Mormonism is not very popular on a world wide social scale.

      There was also mention in another article where Julianne Hough states that they don’t plan on getting married right away and that they have “plenty of time” and that she is just “too busy” to plan a wedding. Within Mormon standards, that translates to, that she knows that she is “NOT ready” to get married in the temple, even though “she wants to” wait until she knows she is “worthy” to get married in the temple.

      She admits that she drinks wine, which goes against Mormon word of wisdom, which eliminates one from entering the temple. She more than likely has had premarital sex already too; so yeah, “there’s no hurry”. She just doesn’t want to disappoint anyone in her Mormon family, so she has to lie by omission about where she stands between her beliefs to the world and her personal life from the Mormon culture.
