5. I was raised as an atheist

My husband and I are 41 and 43, and we were both raised as atheists. I am always amazed at what my husband wasn't told about the Christian mythos. He had a Catholic mom and and Jewish dad.

I was raised by an atheist and was told all the stories, and I loved cartoons Superbook. I read every holy book I could find.

My hubby didn't even know who Noah was, and he was first introduced to the Christian fabula through literature.

I enjoyed telling him the Old Testament stories as much as I did telling him about Gilgamesh. It figures we met in a Professor of Ancient Greek's public college welcome.

I guess we're rare, but I just thought I'd add my two cents.
