Nathan & Esther 5: No Room for the Holy Spirit Between Nathan and the Wedding Square

I decided to go ahead and make a new thread in anticipation of the possible maybe engagement. I'll remove Esther's name if they break up!

But of course, if they break up, will Nathan have any heart pieces to pick up?

I freaking love the title. Great job! 

If they broke up (unlikely to me but you never know) I don't think Nathan will have many heart pieces around to pick up.

LOL! He's gotta be sitting at around 10% heart pieces by now, right? He gave 'em all away to planned parenthood protestor Ashley and Esther and her wedding square. None left for the next potential wife!

Yeah, I think around 10% if you wanna be generous if this relationship also ends. Will heart pieces grow again? Or will he be permanently damaged? ??

I think for the men its permissable for them to grow back but sadly and most probably truly a pooor girl would be looked at as permantly damaged. I mean lips have touched body parts

The area of her body not allowed to be touched before marriage.....

... the area he got awfully close to while giving her a ... uh ... Godly back hug? Forget side hugs, they’re too last season.

 

Please note - I personally have no problem with this at all. I think it’s healthy for couples to express love through physical touch before marriage. What I have a problem with is the fact that Nathan’s parents have a totally different standard for their sons than their daughters. The girls had to wear skirts and were barely allowed to touch their husbands before the wedding ceremony.

Not to mention, both Esther and Nathan are older than most of sisters were when they got married. Nathan can be single at 27 without Kelly panting for a ring, but 20 year old Katie needs to be engaged. So far with the exception of Michael, all of his sisters were married by 23.

How old was Michaella?  

My prediction for engagement is after Katie, it will go Nathan and then Lawson. But after that? Trace. And then Kelly may have to wait a long while to marry off a kid.

Damn--how small is her wedding square? 'Cause it looks like he has his hand in what my MIL would delicately call "the woman's area."

It's his knee poked between her thighs that gets me. No way can she not feel anything manly pressing against her.

No way has this couple refrained from kissing, and probably other activities, before marriage. In addition to the picture of Nathan’s hands hovering close to her bits, they’ve posted photos of their lips about two inches apart. I suspect they’re using keeping clothes on and other technicalities to justify their activities.

She was 25? I think.

I'm curious how Kelly Jo will behave with prospective daughters-in-law. With Chaney some of the sisters (Erin and Carlin) were particularly pushy. 

I think you have the order right. I do wonder if she might start pushing for Jackson or even Warden who will be 18 next month to find someone. May just be for television but they seem to think Trace is a bit of a late bloomer and will concentrate on the others coming behind him. What they showed of him and Chaney was a guy who wants to be viewed as grown and independent but had no idea what to actually do with his life or with a girl.

I noticed that too. Of course she’s a commanders wife! If we lived in Gilead, Nathan would definitely be a commander.

They've conditioned us so much with their self-righteous courtship standards and purity avowals that Esther and Nathan honestly make me uncomfortable in ways I wouldn't care about if I saw other people behaving the way they do. They honestly make me feel like I'm Mrs Bennet, clutching my pearls and declaring Esther so compromised they must marry in haste or we're all ruined!

Esther replied to a comment who asked if her family was mennonite, she said: 

"so a little about my family... my parents were catholic growing up and then moved to Pennsylvania to go to a conservative church, very similar to Mennonite. My parents went there until the beginning of this year, they started going to a baptist church. I started going to a nondenominational church a few years before. ? Basically, we just want to be known as Christians and show Jesus to everyone we know❤️"

Sounds like Esther is willing to meld herself into whatever religious beliefs Nathan will expect of her.

This explains why her oldest sister dresses in a way that looks Mennonite.

      In light of the issues with the electrical grid in Texas, perhaps I should make an appeal to Rufus to continue to keep us above freezing? 🤔

      Advice needed from anyone with experience planning a Catholic wedding
      She's been engaged less than a week and I've got questions.
      Booking a church or venue is done way in advance so we're on that now.   
      Why do churches ask what the date is when they say specifically on the website that you can't set a date until discussing it with the coordinator?  Why can't they ask for a range? Since when have Catholic churches been such pains in the ass about being a member of that parish to get married there?  She's coming in from out of state for the wedding, she doesn't have a parish here.  I'm not religious and my local parish church is ugly.  My childhood parish waived this and said they could marry there, but it's not an ideal location and aesthetically it's fine but she'd prefer older and more cathedralesque if they do the church wedding.   My grandpa's old church is beautiful and she's in love with it....but they're the only one who hasn't gotten back to us.  (St. Hedwig's for anyone familiar with Chicago's Bucktown) Bribes still work, right?  In the old days you could slip the church a "donation" and they'd be a lot more lenient about weddings, annulments, and funerals for non-practicing Catholics.  How are we supposed to figure out the going rate for graft 2021?   I have no problem lying to the administrative staff and claiming to be a practicing Catholic if it helps, does that make me a sociopath?  Although I don't want to lie to a priest directly.  Can you be a sociopath with religious guilt? I've been married twice, both times to Catholics.  First wedding in a Baptist church and second in congregational or community something.  I did that because I suck at planning this kind of thing and fundy-lites will marry anyone with a 20 minute meet and greet, apparently.  I wanted to elope both times and was over ruled both times so I resentfully half-assed it so this is the first time I'm trying to help plan a wedding properly.  
      The church she wants will waive the bride and groom being members if one of their parents are.  I love my daughter so much, but if I have to start actually attending church to make this work I will expect her to pay for the increase in my wine and edible budget.  Member for at least four months.  Driving from the burbs into the city once a week timing it so I get there just in time to toss them an envelope with money I'd rather keep and skedaddle is something I'd rather avoid.
      I know lots of people think what I'm trying to do is awful.  That non-practicing Catholics shouldn't get married in the church, that it's a sin to try and game the system, etc.  That church shopping for the aesthetic is  a sacrilege or such.  I understand how people can feel that way, it's valid.  But people like that would disapprove of me for a million other reasons anyway, so I'm okay with that.
      This is how I'm rationalizing it. 
      I raised her Catholic and while not practicing as an adult she does believe in God, Jesus, giving a shout out to Mary and all that.  They are going to raise their kids Catholic in the sense of sending them to CCD so they have the religious ed and then they can make their own choices as adults.   I spent thousands of dollars on CCD over the years and two out of three of my kids don't know what an apostle is.  They owe me.   Being Catholic is as much a cultural thing as a religious choice and that's the only one we have.   You can't opt out of being Catholic, as my sister once learned when she went fundy-lite, due to the indelible mark of baptism so they keep you on the roster.  If you can't leave the church without a formal declaration then I there should be something in it for us.  One wedding and burial per Catholic no matter how lapsed seems fair to me. When my uncle died in the late 1950s the church wouldn't allow him to be buried in a Catholic cemetery so they put him in a secular one.  Several years later my dad made a sizable "donation" and voila, look who got exhumed and is now buried next to Grandma and Grandpa.  Wish he was here now to handle this.

      When everything will go on as planned, I will marry Mr. S. at the end of the year. But honestly my optimism is fading away (Covid19 and one other fucking annoying issue, that is more likely to get the wedding rescheduled than Covid19) . I wanted to tell it here, just...well...because. You understand?
