I am so sorry to hear that.  That just sounds like such work.  I hope you can make it work out!

@chronicwhimsy:  I’m so sorry to hear about all your troubles. We didn’t have this many troubles, but we certainly had a hard time finding a church that would marry us. We knew the pastor we wanted, and any church was willing to let us have whatever pastor we wanted…as long as we were a member of that church, so we had to find a church that was affiliated with our home church, but wouldn’t make us come all the way to their church (an hour away) for a certain amount of Sundays to become members. It was a pain, but we did find the perfect church in the end.

@chronicwhimsy:  One has to wonder why they won’t get with the times: change the law or find a way around it.

@chronicwhimsy:  Oh my goodness … I had no idea it was so difficult to get married in the UK! That is insane … I hope something works out for you. Perhaps the person that you met with at the registry office was just having a bad day? It sounds like the legal requirements and hoops are much bigger than the religious! Again, hope this works out for you.
