Do you & your inlaws come from the same religions and do the same customs? Or you both have completely different backgrounds?

haha. My family is atheist and I'm a Lutheran. His family is Lutheran and DH is an atheist. Weird right?

The customs... don't even get me started there. They have so many "traditions"... STUPID annoying CRAP that they like to make their 3 boys do that even the boys hate, but I'm evil cause I moved her precious son (not the US Army who issued his orders, but it was all my doing somehow) too far away to participate in them.

We're all Christians... but since I don't think my church exists down here we're of different sections. DH disagrees with organized religion, so he's apart from his family who have an on again off again relationship with the church.

Mine sends the kids to Sunday school, and does church on holidays.. but not much else than that. It's more than his family does... but his seems to think I'm a daemon or something since I'm not from THEIR church.

When I first came to meet them and they realized we were serious, they started planning our wedding for us... and then gave me a list of things I'd need to do to have a ceremony in the church.. including being Baptized... I was very confused since I'm already baptized, confirmed etc in my own church... I have no interest in doing it again. Not to mention we aren't even getting married down here to start with... as Dh says "they got to be there with my ex... if they want to be there for you, they'll go to Canada, it's not fair to ask your family to come to them."

They don't seem to have any specific things they do except expect everyone to do their bidding for everything. They're still trying to convince DH's ex to move back down to the "soggy butthole of the world" as they all call it here... but they don't know she's getting married yet, so I'm sure that'll all be my fault somehow too. LOL

My FIL is a former Southern Baptist Preacher, I was raised Lutheran. However both my husband and I practice Native American and Pagan religious views. Our children are educated on all religions (we are working on getting all the different religions "Bibles"), and are allowed to choose their own religious paths. If they ever ask us to take them to Church, we gladly do so.
