This atheist been with a good Catholic school girl going on 35 years now, married for 30. Personal differences in metaphysics never amounted to anything close to a hot button issue for us. More like the "So, what hand do you wipe your ass with?" level of importance.

We went to the Rally to Restore Reason/March to Keep Fear Alive rally in DC and she really enjoyed it. She couldn't stop laughing at Jesus riding the dinosaur. "Bob, you gotta go ride that bitch. You're a pussy if you don't." "Yeah, like you're gonna bail my ass out and shit. I ain't no fool." Big Grin

RE: Married to a Christian
You've bro't up the subject of listening to this fellow with no response. The only thing I'd ask is "Do I get two tickets or one to listen to xxxx? This way it's not nagging and she'll realize you are going whether or not she does. That puts the ball in her court.

Good luck sir.

The essence of life is statistical improbability on a colossal scale.

"This is who I am. This is who your getting." Like I said, everything else is great! I lived a pretty lonely and heartache life before I met her. I never meet a girl quite like her and I feel I never will. But I feel that she's lived in a bottle most of her life. She's never left her home town, she's lived in the same apartment with her mother her whole life, and she believes in the bible whole-heatedly. When we first meet her friends were even there watching over us to make sure I didn't do anything funny. So she's been trapped in this box. When she meet me we've gone to trips to other states, I've been bringing her to museums she becomes fascinated. I would be happy if she was able to take off the God glasses.

Have ether of you been in similar situations? How did it play out?

I was married to a Catholic. We're divorced.

How old is your wife? She sounds quite young.

She's 32 i'm 33.

Thank you all for the advise. I will defiantly take it all into consideration.
