A lady have this to ask the house,please help for the answers.Thanks:
‘’Before, I got married to my husband (who is Catholic)-I was attending a Pentecostal church. Although, we wedded in the Catholic Church.
The church issue almost marred our wedding due to the mothers (from both sides) dragging ‘where to wed us’’.
I did convince my mum to let go but with a promise that even after the wedding, I would always come around to worship in my former church. My husband said I could always attend my former church-whenever I feel like it.
We have been married for about four years now (with two kids) and for the most part of our marriage -I have always attended the Catholic Church with my husband. But from time to time, I would stop by my former church for mid week programs.
Recently, I attended my former church with my children. My husband was indisposed.
On our way back, we ran into my mother-in-law (who lives nearby) and all hell was let loose when she found out where we were coming from. The children innocently told her that we attended the other grandma’s church.
She even told me how she swore that it would be over her dead body that her son would wed in a Pentecostal church. And that if he had gone against her stance, he would have had to do that wedding without her participation.
Parliament, I am struggling to understand where all these were coming from.
Now, my mother in-law has decreed that I should always bring the children to go to church with her-whenever I am to attend the other church. My husband (who has never had issues with which church I go to) was present but said nothing. I also wondered why he didn’t explain his position on all these to his mum and siblings (who have now joined the fray).
Parliament, please tell me how to handle this.
My problem is that it is not my husband but my in-laws that are complaining about where I worship (on Sundays) with my children. Do they have such right?
I am more comfortable with my Pentecostal faith.’’
