- Wedding: April 2014
Well, that conversation started when she asked me if there were any places to get married in my town. Answer: only churches, and quite a few of the churches in town are a bit on the loony side (we’re talking straight-up fundamentalist here, not more-conservative-than-average evangelical).
So she tells me I need to go to church. Fortunately for her, there’s a Catholic church just down the road, but noooo, that’s not good enough. So I offered to pay a visit to the nearest Quaker meeting, and of course she had Quakers confused for Mennonites and thought I was nuts. I was joking the whole time, of course (though, I’m quite fascinated by the Quaker faith and would visit the local meeting anyway).
She’s not really even that conservative or fundie, I’m not sure why she’s so bent on me going to church. I got zero benefit out of going to church before when I was a Christian. But I knew this was going to happen, she was going to bring up church while talking about my wedding. It pisses me off that she just can’t accept I’m an atheist.
