So it happened. Something I could tell FI was afraid of for a while. Two of his friends declined the invitation to our wedding for the explicit and sole reason that FI is divorced. They are catholic and “don’t believe” in remarriage.
Well [email protected]#* them.
I don’t really care. I’m not the one being judged, and I never really liked them anyway. But it makes me immeasurably angry that they would do this to FI, for no other real reason than to hurt him.
They’re such GREAT Catholics, but they lived together before they were married and had premarital sex.
They are such GREAT Catholics, but they drink to excess and he goes to strip clubs.
Funny how they’re only really great Catholics when it comes to judging other people.

Those great Catholics can go f*ck themselves. When you’re partying it up at your wedding, they can enjoy a dry meatloaf at home.

Wow, I’m sorry to hear that. People can be so rude, judgmental and hipcorites! It’s ridiculous! You probably don’t want them there anyawys. Weddings really do show people’s true colors.

I’m so sorry that they chose to be like that :(. It really sucks when people pick and choose the things they want to see in their religion, especially Christians. I’m a Christian and the ONE thing I make sure I live up to more than any other thing is to love my neighbor. Meaning I would never turn my back on a friend for the decisions that they have made in the past. Especially when the whole divorce thing doesn’t even really affect them. Hugs dear!

Did they actually write that on the response card or were these diligent people nice enough to call and explain this in person? Either way, their loss, I’d go to the opening of the seventh circle of hell if I got free food, booze and cake, seriously? WHO CARES?

@Puffthemagicdragon: Dry meatloaf! BAHAHAHA
@Nona99: They didn’t write it, they mentioned it to someone who told FI. Plus, FI had a sneaking suspicion anyway. She has always been really rude to me, and they were NOT supportive when he got divorced.
And I totally agree with everyone. EFF them. I really didnt’ want them there, anyway. I just feel bad for FI being judged by his friends. That just sucks.

@Tangled: What a couple of hypocrites. That sucks, really. Don’t let the haters get you down.

I’m not Catholic, but I see this kind of hypocrisy in the Protestant church aswell.
Many Christians forget that being a good Christian is NOT about being perfect, and expecting others to be perfect. Infact it’s about the COMPLETE OPPOSITE.

Is your FI Catholic as well? I know there are some Catholics who wouldn’t attend his wedding if he did not get his first marriage annulled. Not that I necessarily agree with that decision (I am Catholic).
If he’s not Catholic, then he’s not bound by the rules of the Catholic church, so then I really don’t get it.
Either way it was very rude to express that reason for not attending to anyone involved. They should have kept it to themselves.

Mr. 99 and I walk a different path, but we figure as long as someone’s giving it the old college try, they’re winning! We went to an Episcopalian Funeral this summer, that thing BLEW MY MIND! Bells and whistles and special cups and snack time….songs, kneeling, standing, sitting, some more kneeling….go get your head wet, walk around a couple of times and then its time for coffee and dessert in the music room! I had no idea what the hell happened!
