| | Re: Religion getting in the way of marriage
I'm a Catholic.
His parents should not be calling the shots in your marriage. They've made their wishes known, and you can do with that what you will.
That said, you might be interested in learning about the Catholic faith and that may be enough for them. There are classes, called RCIA for anyone interested and do not require conversion. The director of Faith Formation at the parish in question could be a great resource to you in dealing with issues, as our is.
In any case, best and don't let anyone push you around. A love for Jesus cannot be forced and you need to be allowed the dignity of your own experience with Him. Tell them that, it might shut them up.
