My husband and I are working through the ongoing process of balancing a ‘mixed marriage’ lifestyle. It’s something I’d like to write about extensively, and I’m tentatively planning on pitching an article to a ‘real’ publication. That said, I’m not an expert, but I am very lucky to have a supportive spouse. Most of our arguments are touched with humor. The following is an excerpt from a real Google Chat conversation…
so, but we’re agreed that we tell the children nothing of your heathen ways and raise them as rigid secular humanists?
what’s a rigid secular humanist?
and what if they want to celebrate yule and imbolc?
imbolc is fun, you leave stuff outside to get blessed, and then you eat bread and butter. or cheese.
you’re going to raise them to believe in fairies aren’t you
“if you don’t clean your room, the bad fairies will live in it and hide your toys! bad fairies love a messy room!”
you get to field the 2am ‘The bad faries are trying to steal my liver’ or whatever then
There you have it. All things are possible, with just a little laughter.
