Re: My Husband is Delaying our Church Wedding
I can understand why she would want a church wedding. I was married Catholic to my ex wife in my church, she cheated 8 years later, we divorced and since I didn't get an annulment I was never allowed to receive communion again, I was an outcast. Of course, after a few months, I started again anyway, only a few people knew my situation and I don't think God held it against me, it wasn't my fault + she divorced me as well.
When I met my wife now, we were married by my Dad, who was a judge. I didn't believe in the whole annulment process, give us money and we'll erase your marriage.
After being married for 4 years, guilt finally took over and I spent the 300.00, filled out the 50 page questionnaire, detailing the whole marriage, with condensed versions going to family and friends. After all of this, the church decides if you qualify or not? I did get it, mostly because we were different religions and not because of cheating, go figure?
My wife and I remarried again in the church and it did feel more right, even though we both believed that God wasn't holding this against us.
I can't figure out why he doesn't want this either, it is only a ceremony for peace of mind? strange??
