What can a (secular) couple customize in their Catholic wedding ceremony?

We are two very secular people who, for family reasons, are having our wedding ceremony in the Catholic church. What can we do within the restrictions of a Catholic ceremony to make the wedding feel like it's our own? [more inside]

Wedding Officiant for Atheists

What options do we have for a wedding officiant in Chicago? We're planning a really small wedding cocktail party next fall. We'd like to do something to mark the occasion with our families and friends and expect to have a ring/vow exchange. However, the groom is not remotely religious and the setting will not be solemn. Therefore, we are unsure what options we have for an officiant. We don't a ceremony lasting more than 10-15 minutes. [more inside]

Goodbye to all that

I was with my ex-wife for a long, long time. She cheated; we separated and ultimately got an easy divorce. We’ve each moved on, and I’m close to proposing to my girlfriend after about two years together. We’re a great pair. But I often feel unanchored, cast about by the knowledge that nothing lasts forever. Am I doing it wrong? Other divorced folks (esp. those on the dumped side)—what’s the path forward? [more inside]

Can we be legally married twice in two different states?

What will happen if a man and a woman submit marriage licenses in two separate states less than a year apart? Specifically, if they get married by a judge in Washington state, then ~1 year later get married by a pastor in Wisconsin and in order to avoid having all parties involved know about the WA wedding, sign another marriage license and have it submitted to the state of WI?

Is this normal in a marriage?

Is this just a bad phase in the marriage, or a sign of more to come? Many details inside, but basically, no sex, no intimacy, a lot of distance, and counseling isn't an option - and I don't really know where to go from here, or if I just have unrealistic expectations. [more inside]

Marriage Already!

It seems that "the girlfriend" is no longer going to go by that sobriquet. We have decided, after about 15 years of living together, to get married. I am as nervous as I could possibly be. We both come from two previous failed marriages. OTOH we love each other so much, it's scary sometimes. I'd like some advice from people who were in very long term relationships who decided to take the plunge. As well I'd like advice from people who are in long term relationships who think it's less than a good idea.

The Secret Marriage

Two years ago I entered into a marriage of convenience for health insurance. But the person I married was my live-in boyfriend -- someone I already loved and was committed to. He was the one who asked me. It's just that neither of us really wanted to go all the way and be husband and wife. We both come from broken homes and are very cynical about marriage. We thought we could have our cake and eat it too. Now things have changed. [more inside]
