Wife wants a church wedding but I don't

User Profile
My wife is religious which is why she believes that having a church wedding is the only way to get married. I, on the other hand, don’t really believe in anything that has anything to do with religion. I can’t seem to think of a way on how we can compromise with this. I don’t know what to do anymore. We constantly fight about this which is why I’m choosing to ask for help from the internet. It’s hard to argue with someone who was raised in a religious family. It makes sense because I met her through an international dating social event. I should’ve seen this coming when we first got together. I don’t normally do this type of thing but if asking people on the internet won’t work, then I’ll have no choice but to expect the worse. Any suggestions of advice will greatly be appreciated. Thank you!

Harry, I don't hear that she has been bugging you to go to church every Sunday and say prayers at mealtime. She may not be as religious as you fear. The church wedding could be something she has dreamed of for years, that her friends and family expect. If it's a one time event, just go with a smile on your face.

If on the other hand she is secretly planning to convert you to a practicing theophile, you may have backed the wrong horse.
