A friend raised an interesting question the other day: would it be a plus or a minus in your book to have an SO who was a ‘person of the Cloth’?
On the one hand, you got the whole ‘God’s on his/her side’ thing going on (if you subscribe to such things), but on the other it just seems like you’d always be playing second fiddle to the needs of the congregation. Seems like there’d always be a birth or funeral or a food drive or a Bible study meeting….or something going on that does not abide by normal working hours. It’s not a job, after all, it’s a calling.
Worse yet, what if you were the child of clergy? Share your views what would be desirable or undesirable about living with clergy (and if anyone here was the son of a preacher man you owe us a lengthy explanation of why the apple seems to fall so far from that particular tree)
