Pre-Cana!

Monday, January 23rd, 2006

This past Sunday Rachelle and I attended a pre-cana class, a requirement for anyone getting married in a Catholic Church. It was AWFUL!! It was scheduled for 12 noon to 6pm, but only went to 4:30. Even though we got out an hour and a half early I thought I was going to kill myself.

It was a simple setup and really didn't need to be anywhere near as long as it was. They had like 7 or 8 readings from some book and talked a little about each one. We had to write answers to questions about each reading and then talk to each other about our answers. They gave us WAY too much time in between each thing to write answers and talk. I'm talking like 20 minutes to answer 3 questions and share the answers! We also watched a movie clip from some film where a couple was going to get a divorce but then changed their minds at the last minute.

It hardly seems possible all of that could fill up 4.5 hours, but it did. I am glad that we did the single longer weekend session rather than like 3 2-hour weeknights.

It looked like most of the people there were like us and not really pleased about being there. There was this one creepy couple that kept making out in the back of the room. It was gross. It made me think they haven't known each other long enough to get married if they are all over each other like that, especially in public.

i'm glad i'm lutheran. i think you just have to meet with the pastor a few times to talk and then you are all set to go. john is catholic, but obviously catholic marriages didn't work for him in the past. protestant will be a nice change.
