Here's our interview in Patheos:
"Although once in a while I think about the eternal implications of not having a temple marriage, I am also confident that there will be special dispensation for couples like us."
Wow, Sylvia, I loved that!
The best thing is that they asked questions that I've been really interested in asking you myself. I also found it interesting that his family was more accepting than yours. If you don't mind me asking, are they better about things now?
That's a really cool article. I also read some others. It's all really interesting. I haven't considered how hard it might be for people of two very different faiths (or not quite so different) to have a successful marriage and have families that would support them.
My husband doesn't attend church with me (I follow the Lutheran tradition, but being an army brat, I grew up non-denominational and have worshiped pretty much in all forms of Christian tradition except Pentecostal - Tina took me with her to meetings a few times when were teens). He grew up Methodist but decided to not continue attending church.
Sometimes I wish he would join me, but really I felt that way because I didn't have a good church family. Now I have a great church family and always someone to hug and share the peace with during service. It's very nice to have a good church family. And have my husband who supports me even if he keeps his faith very private.
My parents are both Catholic and haven't been particularly happily married so I definitely feel lucky! I also agree with the community part. My church family has always made M feel welcome so even if he's not next to me I don't feel as much of a loss.
