Thank you all for your encouraging responses. Any thoughts on how to find a situation where our children will understand my religion also? Currently we attend my church one week and his church the other. I am content with this arrangement for now and for the future, but he feels that it is completely unsuitable for children. We both agree that it is important to us to attend church as a family. I am uncomfortable for both myself and my future children to attend ONLY Catholic mass. It is important to me to expose them to the Lutheran Church also.
