See those little icons at the bottom of each message?

The notify moderator icon is one of them. It's the one with a little slash through it. Of course, you could just hover your mouse cursor over it and it will tell you that.

Best of luck.

I had never actually bothered checking those out... Damn.



Well, my apologies. I shall no longer police this forum in a vigilante-esque manner (Unless the person being reported REALLY ticks me off ).

Yes, that's quite the thing, only moderators should be enforcing the rules of the forum.

However, since it seems everyone here is aware of the mistake...we'll let it go.

Do I have this problem? No.

Am I a Satanist that is married to a woman that it not? Yes.

If you are open and honest in your relationship, there should be no problem.

Agreed. My girlfriend wasnt to pleased when I first announced it, but after she did some reading she happily accepted me for who I am. If you cannot be honest to your partner about such a minor detail, its not going to work.

Did you think of this before you got married?

Eitherway what kind of marriage do you have if you have to ask complete strangers on how to approach one of the most important things that should have been dealt with before making a lifelong commitment to someone.

Personally, I wouldnt ever carry on a relationship with someone who was not a Satanist as its caused me nothing but headaches but thats just my experience, for others it has worked out fine.

In your case it seems that its finally time for you and your wife to see whether you "really" know and love each other or if your religion will drive a wedge between you. Besides, there is no need to force her of anything, you should have realised by now that Satanists are born and not made.

I wasnt going to post anything yet but, in some cases a person is married, years before they ever even know satanism exists. in that case, if you decide on a particular religion(any religion) and if your the kind of person who would only marry someone of the same religion,(if you decide to get married at all.) for religious reasons. then you would have quite a struggle with that. I do not personally have that problem. in any case, I dont think the Church of Satan encourages marriage to begin with.Im not married. I have no desire to get married.

You don't think, eh? What makes you think that?

It said somewhere that it only does so occassionally , and the satanic bible says, "with much reluctance".plus dont forget it says they are sorry every sunday that they lusted after others. I would rather be the "others" being lusted after, than the one apologized too. I think.

You make in interesting point, however it really does come down to each to their own in this case.

As I had stated, my view pertains to myself only and I do think that for someone who IS a Satanist and enters a relationship on false grounds by hiding that aspect of themselves, is already setting themselves up for a fall, especially if their partner is closed minded.

For those that realise down the track that they are Satanists, then I think thats where the lines of communication, love and understanding between you and your partner get tested, especially if your partner is a devout Xtian or some other denomination the believes in a deity.

I second that. There are some out there who are dyed in the wool Satanists...they just don't have a card yet. As long as honesty and communication is there, there should not be a problem.

Marriage isn't the issue, self-deceit is.

If you're married and only pretending to be monogamous against your natural sexual inclination then it's self-deceit. If you truly make a monogamous commitment that you honour and your partner understands this, there's no conflict with Satanism.

To assume that Satanism is against marriage is a to misconstrue the Satanic Bible. It simply advocates being true to the self, whatever form of commitment and/or sexuality you wish to pursue.

I am a Satanist, and my fiance' is not. In fact she was raised strict Jehovah's Witness but no longer is a part of that religion. She doesn't quite understand Satanism, but tries and is very supportive of me. Here's the deal, we talked about this before we proceeded with the relationship. I told her that I am a Satanist and will not change. She appreciated my honesty and has never once tried to get me to change. I understand that she is not a Satanist and never will be but that's fine. The important thing is that we get along great, sure we have our problems as any couple does but we know how to work it out, beyond that our personal beliefs are in fact irrelevant. If anyone is in a relationship to try and change someone then they are in that relationship for all the WRONG reasons.Good luck!
