We did the Foccus test, and the context of those questions weren’t “do you agree with the Catholic Church on topic X,” but rather, “do you and Fiance agree with each other on topic X?” I think that is a lot more important.

I’m not really surprised that the deacon who knew you for your whole life would be disappointed to find out that you aren’t as devout as he had always thought. It definitely sounds like that’s what he was expressing towards you. He was probably just so surprised that he couldn’t react in a more patient manner? 

You say you and your Fiance know your differences in the area of religion, but that really is soooo important, since that can be one of the biggest things couples fight about. For example, if there is a chance you might have children someday, are you in complete agreement about how they will be religiously raised? (pleeeeease don’t say, “oh we’ll figure it out later b/c we’re so much in love!”) Or have you discussed what might happen if for example he becomes even less Catholic (almost anti-Catholic?) or you someday decide to get even more involved with your faith? Those are just some examples. For the Foccus test, those were the kind of questions that our responses guided our priest to discuss with us; I hope that even though your deacon was surprised and disappointed, he will still be able to guide you both in that area!
