As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Another priest who doesn't belong among people
Lionel is foaming, but I am, too. Of course we are feeling like that for different reasons:
This priest did not marry a woman and her boyfriend because the woman is 20 years older.
Lionel is foaming because of his personal situation and because WTF is this guy talking about stuff he has no clue of?
Can you guess what's pissing me off?
It's the question how this priest would behave if the older partner were the male and not the woman.
As nearly everybody else, I know some couples where the age difference is really huge (10+ years). But who am I to declare them as happy or not? Who am I to judge about their partnership? I found out, especially with older women, people (mostly men) are a lot more willing to critisize than older men. It was so usual for a man to marry women 20+ years younger than he was, noone ever cared.
I have a general problem with catholic priests. I think they should do what they have studied and where they have the best experience in.
Marriage does surely not belong to this qualifications. So, I don't see any right for any catholic priest to say a word about how people should or could or could not live together.
I wish this woman would shrug this "man" off and marry her guy without church.
