A Little Humor

So, getting married in the Catholic Church is one of the most ridiculously over-complicated processes that was ever created.  Thank goodness I don't intend to get married again.  I couldn't take it.  Anyway, one of the million-and-one steps is to have two people that have known you since you were of marriageable age testify as to your ability to marry.  My mother called in to our church's marriage coordinator, and the conversation went something like this:

Liz:      Is Katy keeping any deep secrets from Robert prior to their wedding?
Mom:  Well, that depends.  Who is Robert?
Liz:      Her fiance.
Mom:  Well, that would be a deep, dark secret, seeing as her fiance's name is Chris.
Liz:      Oh, you're right!  Robert's his middle name!

The things we have to go through...


  1. Another engaged Katy! Thanks for stopping by- can't wait to read up on your crazy engaged stories... loved this one!

  2. Apparently, the secret it to get married CIVILLY, then wait a few years. We just got our marriage convalidated and it was a super easy process - an interview with the deacon, a 4 week (1 hour once a week) Refocus class, and then our wedding! I was really shocked at how easy it was, as a matter of fact. I guess they figured we were already committed, huh?

  3. Wish I had known that a year ago! ;)
