Yes. Sometimes a "nationality and religion" go hand-in-hand...
So...when you hear the word Saudi Arabia...what immediately springs to mind?
So I think of Saudi Arabia and I immediately think Muslim. I thing England and it's Anglican. France and it's Catholic with monasteries...
So what religion springs to mind when you think Saudi Arabia...
If that was the case...they most likely wouldn't ask me in the first place..
Probably just catch Wheel Of Fortune...
If they were friends I'd go unless due to their culture, there was something in their wedding ceremony or reception that I couldn't cope with. So if they had all meals with curry which I'm allergic to, I couldn't eat and wouldn't want to offend anyone etc
I suck it up and go... They are obviously friends... That is what I am focusing on...
However there are people I know that would not be going with me...
Oh I would certainly attend if someone is kind enough to invite me to their wedding. Religion or nationality has never stopped me from attending a wedding. Work or having a previous engagement would be the only reason I would not attend.
If they are my friends, I will certainly go and celebrate their marriage.
Depends on how close the friends are.
I probably would not be friends with such people to get invited.
In fact I have been to five weddings in the last sixty years: my brother's, my own, my best friend's, my son's, and my sister's. My son's bride was pagan, my sister and her groom were both Mormon, and the rest were non-religious. I did not consider any of them to be a high point of my life.
Two of my brothers married Mexican women, and the cultural differences have been remarkable. One is the Mexican kids are all fat, and kids in my family are all thin and muscular. That's because when my mother baby sits, she puts the kid in a baby chair and spoons food in, and the first time baby refuses the food she closes it and puts it away. Mamacita follows baby around the room, coaxing him/her to please take another bite.
Yeah, you could say I disagree with the Mexican nationality. At least the portion of it that passes through this border town!
I have a Mexican assistant (part time) and she speaks v little English. I've been trying to warm up to her. She is a hard worker.
She doesn't seem very well informed about Trump et al.
She prolly got fed by Marmacita, too.
I doubt that if there was a nationality that I disagreed with, I'd be getting an invitation from a person of that nationality. If I am invited to a wedding, and it's within a day's drive. I go. Nationality and religion of those getting married, have never, and would never be an issue. (Either they are my friends, or they aren't)
Why would you be invited to a wedding for people that you obviously aren't friends with? If you disagree with he nationality, why would you be friendly enough to get an invitation to the wedding? Makes no sense.
I did a lot of jobs for a couple and they were kind enough to invite me to their wedding.
Then it was more of a courtesy nvite than because they consider you a friend. So, you blew them off?
Still thinking about it...I probably will go...
I think you should. It could be a wonderful experience. Leave your judgment at home and just celebrate the beginning of their life together. You might be glad you did.
I was once invited to a wedding reception, but not the wedding, (because of their religious beliefs) I didn't attend. I don't even remember what the religion was. It was about 30 years ago.
I understand that was a custom years ago. I wouldn't attend either!!
I try to get out of attending any and all weddings - regardless of religion. I'm an object at rest and I try to keep it that way.
I have never disagreed with a nationality or a religion.
I have disagreed with a few people, s it depends on what we are disagreeing over.
If we are disagreeing over religion, I go. We have freedom of religion in this country.
If we are disagreeing over nationality?
I am not even sure what that would sound like.
"No Joe, 'martian' in not a nationality" (?)
"Jane I disagree that you are from South African!" (?)
Now if they are trying to say that certain nationalities are bad,
"all Beafrans are lazy"
I would not go - because they just are prejudiced dickheads who don't merit my support.
Hmm...still waffling...hm? I understand.
So you'd go.
You're so cute VicZinc.
If its an open bar...then I wouldn't care
Priorities are priorities...:)
I don't disagree with any religion or nationality. Of course I would go!
What if you were seated separate from your partner? Unless your partner was a female.
If they are my friends, I would definitely go. I'm not Catholic but I've been to many, many Catholic weddings.
