Most want nothing to do with the church. She has to come to the realization that the church may not be infallible, it can't be forced on her or proven to her. I know I am a strong person but it really does suck sometimes. But the issue of marrying a non-member raises two fundamental problems: That idea seems so contrary to the nature of God.
