Would you marry a minister?

My family is Salvation Army. Most Newfoundlanders are.
I was at mom's and the minister was over for a visit, nice lady.  Yes, we have a female minister.  That is one thing I have always respected and admired about Salvation Army, that the women have just as much training and rank as the men do.
She was telling me that she's been ordained now for over 20 years.  I had a ton of questions for her.
Some of you know that I was ordained through the Universal Ministries back in 2007, (too bad it's not recognized in my province but that's another rant for another time) and I have my First Degree in Wicca.  That was my plan years back, to become pagan clergy.  (High Priestess)

People change, life throws stuff at you. My life has taken twists and turns and my path is doubling back on itself (another confusion for another time)

We have alot of ministers in our family. Always couples (then again, that's how the Salvation Army works; you rarely see single ministers)
If I could find a way to merge the two religious beliefs, I would, and take the course.

In the last year and a half, I've talked to so many guys on those dating sites who are either over the top religious or anti-religious.  I never thought a person's spiritual beliefs should get in the way of a relationship, but I've learned the hard way it does.  It should not but it does. 

Is the idea of a female minister of any denomination/spiritual path, a hard thing for a man to accept?
