The actual “attendance” was fine. I mean, it’s not that hard to get in the car, go to church, and leave.

The weirdest part was trying to find our place as an engaged couple. We didn’t feel like we belonged at the Young Adults gatherings... nearly everyone there was single. And we couldn’t join a marriage small group... obviously, because we weren’t yet married.
