THE PRIEST’S WIFE
Mari Mars is a sex therapist... and her husband is a Greek Orthodox priest...
On the spectrum of ‘morality,’ Mari and her husband Christos have two jobs that couldn’t be further apart. So far this couple has made it work, but it is often a ‘crisis of faith,’ as the traditions of the most conservative orthodox Church in the world clash with Mari’s progressive view of human sexuality. What others see as sacrilege, though, Mari sees as closer to the core tenets of Greek Orthodoxy than any other point of view, and her deep understanding of the texts make her an impressive advocate for change.
