My father in law is getting re-married this summer and I’m not sure whether to attend the wedding or not. I would appreciate your thoughts.
The situation is this: my husband’s parents are protestants and got married in their church. They divorced several years ago. Now, my FIL is getting re-married in the Anglican church although neither him or the fiancee are Anglicans. (They never attend church and consider themselves ‘spiritual but not religious’. )
The church in which my FIL was originally married allows divorce and remarriage. I have found a source according to which the priest in the Anglican church decides in every individual case whether remarriage is allowed.
I really don’t want to attend this wedding. It just seems offensive to God on so many levels. My husband is not impressed by it all but has agreed to go to the wedding in order to avoid family drama (which I completely understand - it is a long and painful story). I have an excuse, however, and am very tempted to use it and not go.
