A friend of mine, who shall remain nameless, is going to have a wedding, to which I’ll likely be invited. Here are the facts of the case:
(1) This person is a lapsed Catholic. To what degree I don’t know.
(2) This person has been living with the future spouse up to this point.
(3) I don’t know what they do together under their roof. All I know is that they live together—full stop. Don’t get carried away with your imagination.
(4) I don’t know whether they’re getting married in the Church. Suppose, for argument’s sake, that they are not getting married in the Church.
This is a real situation. I’ve just presented this way to be as clear as possible. So, in view of statements #2 and the supposition in statement #4 (bold), I’m unsure whether I can attend this wedding. I certainly don’t want to seem holier than thou. Then again, sometimes we’re asked to put ourselves in awkward situations for The Kingdom.
What are your thoughts?
