Is it okay for a teenage Mormon to wear the other sex's underwear?
To Mormons, probably not. For any teenager at all, provided it doesn't interfere with how your life would otherwise run.

Answer: only when we go into the temple In Exodus 40:13 it says: . 13 And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify him; that he may m…inister unto me in the priest's office.. Mormons put on these "special underwears", aka: the holy garments, as an outward sign of a commitment to God. The garment is white and represents purity, and by wearing it the person commits to Jesus Christ that he/she will follow whatever the Lord commands of them, just as people did in the Old Testament (the Jews). These garments serve not only as a reminder, but as a protection from God. Not necessarily from physical harm, but spiritual harm as well. Some people have reported that their garments have protected them from physical harm. Regardless, this is the purpose of the garment, and these holy garments are worn in conjunction with the restoration of the Lord's true church here on the Earth as a commandment from the Lord. Answer I was about to say that we don't when I realized what you were talking about. The temple garments right? I'm not exactly sure how to word the answer, but if you found a member and asked they might be able to give you a more accurate answer than mine. The garments are used to enter the temple. The temple is a super sacred place and to honor that everything we wear and do there is special. Answer They then put on the "authorized pattern" undergarment with another ceremony. This is the garment devout Mormon men and women wear nearly all of the time - day and night, summer and winter. They are told it will be a shield and protection against the power of the destroyer until their work on earth is completed. Many Mormons have testified of physical and spiritual protection by wearing the garment. Non-Mormons (Gentiles) sometimes refer to this garment as "Mormon armor" or "bullet-proof underwear" because of the dramatic stories Mormons tell about its protective power. The original undergarment was full length with a large collar, but dress styles have changed and the garment has been greatly abbreviated. However, President Joseph F. Smith said: The Lord has given unto us garments of the Holy Priesthood, and you know what that means. And yet there are those of us who mutilate them, in order that we may follow the foolish, vain and (permit me to say) indecent practices of the world. In order that such people may imitate the fashions, they will not hesitate to mutilate that which should be held by them the most sacred of all things in the world, next to their own virtue, next to their own purity of life. They should hold these things that God has given unto them sacred, unchanged and unaltered from the very pattern in which God gave them. Let us have the moral courage to stand against the opinions of fashion, and especially where fashion compels us to break a covenant and so commit a grievous sin (Improvement Era, 9:813, August, 1906).
That is not true. There is nothing that may prevent Muslims from doing so. However, Muslims never wear underwear on Hajj as that is one of the rules/ traditions. It is the… same in Pakistan and many hot countries where it is more healthy not to wear, and I prefer not to. But no religious reason except for Hajj.
Yes, is your choice, I do know some kids who where them so they can play video games all day without going to the bathroom.
boys wear boxers girls wear panties or thongs
Sure. So long as the temple garment is worn properly, anything may be worn over it. Most Church members don't want to wear regular underwear (aside from women's bras) over the… temple garment because it just adds extra bulk.
yes it is but only if the clothes are appropriate What a Mormon chooses to wear for Halloween is up to them. The Church has dress guidelines, which say such things as "thro…ugh your dress and appearance... you should show that you are a disciple of Jesus Christ", and "when choosing clothing, ask yourself if you would feel comfortable wearing this in the Savior's presense." The Bible also says "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment" (Deuteronomy 22:5) However, each member of the Church is to interpret these guidelines for themselves and decide what they think is appropriate. If they feel that cross-dressing on Halloween is okay, then they can do it.
What your daughter wears is obviously between you and her, however you asked with specific reference to your faith. For such questions, your local Bishop will be in the best p…osition to assist you in your concern.
While the behavior of your son is between he and you, there are obviously guidelines, rules, preferences, etc. that various differing faiths have. You specifically referenced… him as a "Mormon", or what is actually a "Latter Day Saint". I believe the Bishop of your Ward would be the man to ask for the church's specific stance on that.
I am assuming by "Mormon Underwear" you are referring to the Temple Garment. The Temple Garment is considered extremely sacred to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latt…er-day Saints and is not generally discussed in casual conversation or shown to those outside of the faith. The Garment is received after one is washed and anointed in the Temple, in a ceremony similar to the one found in Leviticus 8 in the Old Testament. This ordinance is usually administered to those preparing to leave on missions ( usually ages 19 to 25), those preparing to be married in the temple, or to converts one year or more after their baptism. Church members who do not fall under one of these categories are usually recommended by their Bishop to receive it in their late 20's. Once receiving their washing and anointing, they are obligated to wear the Garment throughout their lives because of certain covenants they have made in the Temple. The Garment serves to remind the wearer of the covenants they have made with God. It serves as an outward expression of an inward commitment to follow Jesus Christ, as a sort of protection, and as a promoter of modesty. Also, as Mormons have an all-lay ministry, the Temple Garment is considered a sort of 'priest's robe', just as some other religions minsters or pastors wear a special collar or robe to signify their authority to preach. In short, there is no set age. The youngest age someone might start wearing the garment is 18, but only if they are leaving on a mission or getting married. Most who do not serve missions or marry young begin wearing it in their late 20's, and most converts do within a year or two of their baptism.

Male members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) have the same underwear options as other men: boxers or briefs (or boxer-briefs!). Those… Church members who have chosen to be "endowed" (recieve a sacred priesthood ordinance in a Temple ceremony) are obligated to wear an undergarment that is symbolic of the covenants they made in the Endowment. While the undergarment is produced and distributed by the Church, it is available in several styles and fabrics, the most popular of which are boxer-style or boxer-brief style, just like regular store-bought mens underwear.
Yes, but most devout Mormons wear underwear, or "garments" all the time.
Adult men and women who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the 'Mormon' church) may choose to participate in a special ceremony in the Temple call…ed the Endowment. As a part of the Endowment ceremony, the person will make certain covenants or promises with God. They will then be given a sacred garment to wear under their clothing, which serves as a reminder of the promises they made to God during the ceremony. This is similar to the way wearing a wedding ring reminds one of the covenant or promise they have made with their spouse. Nobody is forced to wear the garment, but most choose to because the promises they made are sacred and special to them. Many other denominations and religions have special robes or other clothing for their clergy, and since Mormons have an all lay clergy, the garment is considered a sort of 'priestly robe', qualifying them for responsibilities in the lay clergy. It is considered sacred and is not discussed in casual converstion. If it is mocked or disrespected it is very offensive to faithful Church members. The Church published reference book, True to the Faith, says "Once you are endowed, you have the blessing of wearing the temple garment throughout your life... The garment provides a constant reminder of the covenants you have made in the temple... Wearing the garment is an outward expression of an inward commitment to follow the Savior."

Mitt Romney, like most adult members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the 'Mormon' church) has participated in a sacred Temple ceremony called the 'Endowmen…t', in which a special priesthood garment is given to the participant. This garment is a symbol of the covenants and promises made with God during the endowment ceremony, and Mormons wear the garment to remind them of these sacred promises they made. (the ceremony and garment are based on the Old Testament, see Exodus 39:28; Exodus 28:40-43; Leviticus 16:4) Since he has participated in this ceremony, Mitt Romney has an obligation to wear the garment under his clothing at all times, day and night, as a reminder and symbol of the covenants that he has made. If he chooses not to wear it, that is his personal choice, but as a faithful practicing Mormon, he most likely does.
Most adult members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) choose to participate in a special Temple ceremony called the "Endowment". During t…his ceremony, a person makes covenants or promises with God and is given a sacred garment to remind them of these promises. This garment is worn under the clothing, and so is often referred to by non-Mormons as "Mormon underwear". Since the garment is considered sacred it is not to be photographed, but I can describe it to you. The garment comes in many different styles but the biggest differences are that it provides more coverage than most modern underwear and that it is always white. Both men and women are required to wear a top and bottom (a one-piece style is also available but not very popular) The most popular style for men and women is similar to a short sleeve t-shirt and athletic shorts. It is just like a man wearing a white undershirt and white boxer shorts or boxer briefs. There are also long sleeve tops and calf or ankle length bottoms, which are common in cold climates. Special women's tops for pregnancy and nursing are also available. The garment comes in different fabrics just like normal underwear, such as cotton, cotton/poly, and silky polyester as well as thermal. Another difference is that the garment cannot be purchased at a typical store. Even though some styles look similar to regular underwear, they must be purchased from the Church and made by Church members in a Church-owned factory. This is to preserve the sacredness of the garment. The Church sells the garment online and through a handful of Church supply centers at a nominal price, comparable to most regular underwear. Mormons who have not participated in the Endowment ceremony do not wear the garment, they wear whatever type of underwear they choose.
No, they do not. Mormons wear Temple Garments not magic underwear. There isn't one bit of magic to Temple Garments. Temple Garments are more like a physical reminder of cov…enants, or promises that Mormons make to God. They also provide protection. Although that depends on the wearer if they believe that claim is physical or spiritual or perhaps even both.

Teenage guys are as different as anyone else. Underwear is apersonal preference. Different guys wear different types ofunderwear.
