I am so stressed out. We’ve met with this guy 3 times (he’s a military pastor- FH is in the military) We’ve done a personality assesment test, read the Five Love Languages book, wrote a paper on bible scriptures of what it is to be a husband/wife, and watched a DVD on marriage for this guy. We sent him the marriage license to fill out and he noticed that my FH and I had to same home address.. Okay yes? What’s the issue? We live in 2013… ‘You’re not supposed to live together before marriage. Please read your bible more carefully. I cannot marry you, I will be mailing your marriage license back.”
…….. I am so upset that he did not mention this before if that was one of his stipulations. Now we are on the look out for a new one! Seriously the last thing I needed.

That is terrible. I’m sure you’ll find one. I would probably send him a few verses on Judgment and ask if maybe he should be reading his a bit more closely. But thats not most people’s style.

What! We got married in a church by a Pastor, and he laughed at us when we asked if us living together was going to be a dealbreaker for him!
Sorry you have to deal with this!
