Yep. Most of her weird pronouncements are directly related to being a god botherer.

Did none of this stuff come up before you decided to get married?

I can confirm this is true. For the entire duration of every tennis match I've ever played, I've found myself being heterosexual. The problems only started when I couldn't maintain the 24x7 tennis because of exhaustion.

Didn't particularly seem an issue then, as I was 100% dead set against having children.

As such I thought that what she believes is her own business I don't care too much.

Problem now being that with logic such as this displayed on a seemingly increasing basis, I can't just stand by and not call bull**** when it affects the kids.

That's a tricky one. Fortunately my wife and I are similarly uninterested in religion - not particularly against it, just have no real interest. Can't imagine how it would work if my wife wanted them to be raised religiously.

How are you raising them, do they go to church, get baptised etc?

They've been baptised. They were babies so I thought if I needed to choose my battles, this one is probably one I can let go.

Fortunately my wife can't attend her church that often as we now live quite a long way from it but when they go she makes them go to Sunday School.

I just tend to ask them what they've learnt when they get back and give them an alternative view. Noah's Ark was a fun chat. I asked their mum to sit in and answer various questions etc she hasn't agreed to do that since :)

I've already managed to make the 7 year old doubt what she has been told, I don't particularly want to confuse them but I'd rather a bit of confusion than them blindly accepting complete horsepiss.

I am a fairly introverted person who likes to share time and space with people of my choosing...But I love my space.
I go beach fishing. Summer/winter .....anytime of the year. I respect there will be people about in the nice weather....but even in the depths of winter, I'll find myself a nice secluded spot on the beach, nobody about for a mile left and right.....and some bunch of tools will enter my space and throw stones, shout, ask me questions, blah,blah ****ing blah...........

I'm queuing up in a shop and some feel the need to stand so close behind me I can hear them breathing.
I hate this. Back off...it actually stresses me. Supermarket time....people right behind with their trolley. I'm not in the way. I try to avoid any unnecessary interaction with others, but some feel the need to invade my personal space....Why..?

I would be so happy on a remote Western Isle. People, please, just **** off...!!!

You need to start making a few human sacrifices to Satan. That'll tell her what you're all about. You could start with a few Arsenal fans.

Just saying...

The kids knocking one of them toilet rim things and flushing it down the bog. 100 quid for a plumber to come and get the buggering thing out!

Haha this sort of stuff really annoys me too. Even things like when I am in the toilet and there are a number or free urinals/cubicles around, but people feel the need to go to the one right next to me. WHY?!!!

Worse was a mate and I went Froch vs Groves in Manchester, next morning on the train back, hanging out our arses, tons of free seats some blokes sat next to us for god know what reason, even after farting profusely after a night of alcohol and curry, they still didn't move, comments like "it smells like someone is eating egg sandwiches"

Was queuing up for the London aquarium a few years back, & a couple of foreign tourists were in my bubble so I could feel / hear them breathing. They backed off when I pretended to go for something in my back pocket, but elbowing the prick in the ribs as I did. Obviously I sarcastically apologized as if it was an accident. People in my bubble really do wind me up..
