My FI and his entire family are LDS (Mormon). I am Agnostic with my own beliefs that just don't happen to fit an organized religion. I'm still trying to learn about and understand his faith but I find it overwhelming sometimes. Despite the fact that he would never pressure me to convert and he's assured me that he'd rather marry me than marry anyone else in the temple (that would be what they call an eternal marriage - death and beyond) I feel pressure. Now his family is wonderful and they've made me feel welcome but I feel like I'm out of place, mostly on Sundays. The Jesus thing is just weird for me. Maybe it's just because his family is very strictly religious and they've all had temple weddings. I just fee like the odd sheep out and I know his mother would prefer if I were Mormon. I saw her face when we said it wouldn't be a religious ceremony.
How did any of you handle fitting in with your new family?
In a world of crazy we need as many hugs as we can get.
