I thought I would start this topic to see what responses it will generate. Ok, I will start here and anyone else who wishes to comment or what ever, please feel free to do so.
Having been in prison (Married) for almost twenty years to a JAP- (Jewish American Princess), and myself being a Gentile (Catholic) created quite an interesting marriage for sure. Do not get me wrong here, as there were both good and bad times! I can state here that if nothing else, two good things came out of that marriage- My two Boys!
Some of the differences I noticed was the cultural differences between Catholic and Jewish up bringing, traditions, and other ways of life. This created some interesting differences that were always challenging during our relationship. And the outcome, my children are neither Catholic or Jewish. They have no religion, or any sense of a higher power's existance. But, they are very well rounded young adults I am thankful for.
I could go on and on here with both the positives and negatives, but I would like to hear others input from their experiences with mixed religion marriages and relationships. Thanks!
OK wwww...tahnks for crawhead education...we hve them too wehre i come from and cook it just the same way..there are lots in Orleans cooking that are similar ..all spice countries from down south share a common taste in hot and spicy stuff...just like the people...
Yes, Blonde, ARredneck is a work of art. We need to keep him around for some fun.
Besides, its always good for the women on here to have comparisons in men. I am just awful sorry that I don't have that outfit of his.
Hey ARredneck. I will swap you a pickup load of certified Texas cowboy jeans, with some certified Texas cow barnyard material included if you will ship me a truckload of your latest fashions. I think Texas is behind the times in the latest Paris Arkansas fashions, and I am sure the bikers and even a few of the cowboys would love to upgrade their wardrobes.

I think you must have misunderstood. I would expect for you to buy us a large mansion sitting in the middle of 5000 acres, in the mountains, and stocked with beautiful french maids, Tahitian dancers, geishas, etc. etc... for better cultural experiences.
I guess for a min. there you must have forgotten that I am a world famous gigolo. Are you getting senile already???
Oh Bonnie, I am weary of always having to teach you everything. Here is some stuff off the net. Think of crawdads (crayfish) as little lobsters or shrimp.
With a succulent flavor and sweet white meat, crawdads are a favorite ingredient of many southern-style dishes. In Louisiana you can eat crawfish pie, crawfish etouffee, crawfish cornbread, crawfish stew, crawfish bisque, fried crawfish, crawfish jambalaya and crawfish cardinale. In fact, many seafood recipes containing crab, shrimp or lobster can be use crawdads as a substitute. Of the two crawdad species in Arizona, the ones you catch in warmer waters are the same type you'd find in Louisiana -- so why not take those fun-loving folks' lead and enjoy a delicious crawdad dish Louisiana-style.
If you decide to enjoy your fresh catch right then and there, your best bet is to boil up a pot of fresh water on a camp stove. You can season your water like the Louisiana Acadians do by adding salt, black pepper and cayenne (red pepper). You can boil the live crawdads whole or you can just cook their tails and the larger claws. They are ready for eating when they turn red -- or about five minutes. If you are going to transport your catch after boiling them, cook the entire crawdad so that you can save the fat from the crawdad heads for use in crawfish bisque or stew.
Some crawdad connoisseurs add other ingredients to the pot, including seafood boil, onion, garlic, cilantro and jalapenos. Once these little lobsters are cooked, you just crack the shells and remove the meat -- dip 'em in butter or just eat 'em plain. To add to the outdoor cooking extravaganza, you might also want to boil up or grill such vegetables as corn on the cob and potatoes -- a hearty lunch to sate that appetite before you head out to catch more of the crustaceans. So, as the Cajuns would say, "Laissez les bons temps rouler" - "Let the good times roll."
Welcome to the MM Forum Sweetie! And Happy 4th to you too!
I have to say you have a way with the words, lol. True also. As for the marriage and prison thing, all I can say is "Love Is Blind" in most cases. It must have been for me anyways, lol. But that was twenty years back for me, lol. Talk to you soon cutie.
Hey tek m8,
Yup, that Billy Bob (ARredneck) is a real work of art isn't he? lol. You just have to wonder what goes on in that mind!!!!! Tread lightly with him, lol.
Well Gee Golly lil miss Gigi,
So you's likes me's new truck sweetie, lol. I best'in get's me's over to y'all to take you's for a ride in it, LMAO. I was thinking of lining the bed with some polyethlene sheeting (plastic sheeting), filling it up with water, and having a mobile swimming pool in the back, lol. Talk to you soon darling.

Our marriage was more like a nutritious diet of banana and egg..he was white on the outside but yellow inside and I am yellow outside and white inside. Sadly, living in UK is not the most conducive place to instill my heritage of language and culture to them and partly because we spent years in Japan and that adopted third culture had far deeper influence on them. So ours is a household of three cultures, a sort of post-modern melting pot , a taste of the future..eclectic and full of surprises..
Bonnie, if you would just come live with me,we could make that 4 or 5 cultures. Those english men are too stuffy anyway. You need to learn how to go on a trail ride and su*ck crawdad heads.
Nice pic of you. Just one thing I am curious about Billy Bob. Them overalls you are wearing. Did one of your alligators bite the belly out of them, or is the mid section a built in air conditioner, lol? Is that a new style of clothing in Arkansas, see thru bibs, LMAO?
Hi Sharon Sweetie,
I can only hope my sons do someday, venture out to seek more knowledge in religions. We will have to wait and see. My older one will graduate next year, and possibly he will while in college. The younger one has another two years until he graduates and off to college.
So how do you like your new beau- ARredneck. He is one dapper stud eh. I bet he stands out at all the Saturday night barn dances, lol. I real ladies man, LMAO. He seems sweet on you lil lady, He-He! Don't let him sweep you off your feet too soon, lol. Talk to you soon darling.

Yes, I agree with you and the religion thing with my sons. I wanted to teach them either or both also, so they would have atleast a religion if nothing else. But because of the problems with my other half it never happened. Hopefully someday, they will find a religion to broaden their horizons. I will just have to wait and see what transpires. Talk to you soon darling.
It's a shame BL that you and your wife did not grasp the opportunity to teach your kids about both your religions. It can be done. But one person can not dictate...compromise is important.
My cousin married a French gal from Montreal. She is bilingual, my cousin speaks no French, and has never attempted to learn. BUT they have two sons. She speaks only French to them, and my cousin speaks only English to them. Those boys are fluent in both languages...no confusion in their household. I know this is language...but I think it can also be applied to religious teachings. People assume that teaching both would create confusion, but I think kids are able to discern the differences and as they get older make their own decisions as to which religion they choose to adopt as their own.
I listen to you, lol. I just think or do something else, lol. But, you are right about the multiple wives thing, just not for me, LMAO sweetie. I truely am a one woman man! Teasing you and the other ladies here on MM sure is fun though, lol.
