I think I remember at the time when she was dating Alan Osmond there was talk that they had became engaged and then the next news was that Alan's mother said that a marriage could not go ahead because Karen wasn't a Mormon. Now I don't know if I have got all this right or not?
Sounds right. Every single one of the Osmonds married Mormons. Not one married outside of their church. Although Maria has married three times (twice to the same man!) but they were all Mormons too!!!!! I think the parents ruled that group with an iron hand, after reading the book from Donny Osmond about his life Like the Carpenters, a lot of stuff was going on behind the constant smiles. I believe Richard married his cousin!!.
