My fiance’ and I attended one of our required marriage counseling sessions today. We’ve done about six meetings and everything has run relatively smooth.
Today she tells the priest that her father (who is not Catholic or very religious) that just her and I should take Communion. No one else. I was furious over this. She had not told me about this yet. So it was news to me. And God bless our priest, he tells her that anyone who is Catholic can come and receive Communion or if not Catholic, cross their arms and take a blessing. Then she speaks up and says that her father doesn’t want to be part of or have anything to do with “all that ****”. The priest was speechless and is going to try and work with us, but bottom line is, WE DECIDE, not her father. He’s tempted to pull funding our wedding. This would dampen things because he’s a VP at a respected credit union and has a lot of money.
I haven’t had a chance to speak with him yet, but how to deal with this? Anyone who is married, have you had something like this?
