Habits and Practices

Dear Short Answers:
My soon-to-be-wife converted to Catholicism when she married her second husband and he insisted that they raise their children in the Catholic church. Now that we are getting married, she is insisting that I convert. Since we are much too old to have children, I don’t really see the point. Some days, I think I should just do it to make her happy. Then others, I think I’m being dishonest because I wouldn’t really go to church anyway (I’m agnostic). This whole religion thing doesn’t make much difference to me one way or the other. Is this the kind of thing a person should do just to make their future spouse happy?

Dear Reluctant:
This isn’t a short answer. It’s a dialogue, with yourself, your future spouse and possibly the clergy.
