@unixfairy: You’re divorced, so my understanding is that you can’t marry in the Catholic church anyway. The only loophole I know of is if you get the first one annulled, which isn’t an easy feat.

If you want honest to goodness advice on nipping this in the bud… don’t go to mass with them. Tell her sorry, I’m going dress shopping that day I have an appointment. If you don’t want people to pressure you into their religion, you need to be very stern about what your religion is, and that your faith is strong. As long as you’re going to Catholic masses with her, she’s going to think you’re really interested in converting… why wouldn’t she?

I know you were probably SO fed up with everything by the time you made that vasectomy comment to your ex-mil… but I hope you and your Future Mother-In-Law can find a way to BOTH be more respectful than that of each other’s faith.

Stand strong woman! And let us know how dress shopping goes Wink

I would sit your Future Mother-In-Law down and have a stern talk with her. Nip this in the bud now, before the wedding. YOu are both adults, and she needs to respect you as much as you need to respect her. Maybe give her a little insight as to how your previous marrige was, and you really don’t want a second showing, because you already know the ending

@Moja Milosc: I agree with you keeping your appointment,  Let them go to mass.  Stand strong, and stay true to your beleifs.  I dated a man once, 2 years and his mom and grand mother were at me non-stop about me having to take chatecism (sp sorry) and become a catholic.  I was like absolutely not.   Luckily, I never got to that point with him as we split but it was kinda scary to be pressured like that.
