This brings up children, what will they be taught? What will they tell their grandparents, about what they were taught?

Lol, I was just trying to remark on his wedding predicament. Its good to have the questions ready, but I wouldnt spend too much time thinking about something that requires the current problem to be solved first.

  The whole scenario has been hypothetical to begin with.  I think the topic was the reason for insult or not to be insulted.  I think there is a topic on the significant other with a conflicting view, Paganism/atheism perhaps.  You should post this idea there, Mlr52.

If that's not anyone's view then that's okay but there is no need for anybody to respond to another person's view in such strong defiance.

I think you are confusing disagreement with defiance here. Defiance implies an opposition to authority. Since you aren't in a position of authority over me, I'm not being defiant.

Does that help somewhat?


Not really, no.  I guess a better way to phrase the question would be, what does trespass of the order of the divine mean to you? How does making her own choices go against the order of the divine?

I am very passionate about my faith, and all I ask for in a relationship is that you respect my faith. 

With that being said, I've been dating this woman for about three weeks now, and she is a Christian and comes from a very traditional family.  I don't know why this came up, but weddings and marriage came up, and I told her that if I ever got married, the wedding ceremony would have to include my gods.  Apparently if her and I ever got married it would strictly be a Christian wedding.  Why, because she doesn't want her family to know that I'm Vanatru.  That also includes not mentioning my faith to her family.

I am honestly offended by this, and over the weekend I have been completing breaking things off.  However one of my friends (who is a Wiccan) told me to not let Politics (religion and politics go together in her world) get in the way of the relationship, but that doesn't remove the fact that I was offended.  I would never insult my gods by not inviting them to an important religious ceremony.

She did mention having a separate ceremony, but it felt like she mention that as a "token" to keep me happy.

Am I overreacting, or am I justifiably offended?

Well an update, I am single once again.  I won't go into details, but I felt that there was a distinct lack of trust or respect in the relationship, and it was better to end it before either one of us got too invested in it.  So, I'm back on the market, and I plan to tell my future girlfriends that I will not hide my religion, and any religious ceremony will involve my gods.  If they don't like it, then they're not worth it in my eyes.
