Re: My husband is demanding I leave my church..

As others have said, you have to where you can have the best relationship with Jesus. I had a similar problem. I grew up Catholic & spent over 40 years in the church, but the older I got, the more bored I became. Reading the same things every week etc. My wife left for a non demoninational Christian church, so we attended different churches for a few years. Then, because I missed attending together, I started going to both. I learned so much in her church and became very involved, I eventually left the Catholic church. My parents weren't happy, but I finally convinced them, you're either Christian or you're not, the building has no relevance.
A lot of Catholic "rules" are self made up anyway, don't get me started on that one.

You sound very happy at the new Church and it's all about making the connection, your hubby should understand this. I'd have a quiet word with him and say you are prepared to attend the odd service at his parents Church. Either that or pray lightening will burn the place down, God Bless xxx

The Catholic Church is a rather broad one, to be fair. I am on one extreme end of it (that is accused of being a bit Buddhist) and the other ends I would barely recognise as the same religion.

Some people like the solemnity of the Catholic service, they can differ from Church to Church. All to do with ones preference, if the service leaves you flat, there is nothing worse so I'd stay true to your beliefs and endure a little uncomfortableness from the inquisitors. Good Luck xxx

I think you must talk to him directly and clear and if still he is not agree and you should quit.

Re: My husband is demanding I leave my church..

This is a difficult situation, but very common. So, what biblical principles are applicable to the situation? I'll share these two:
(1) Love each other as Christ loves the church.
(2) Put the needs of each other above your own.
- As much as Christ loves the church he does not impose his will upon the church. He states his will clearly in scripture and he expects to be obedient. Similarly, spouses should not impose their desires upon each other. Each should state their desires clearly and the other should do their best to meet those desires.
- As both spouses try to meet each others needs, they end up somewhere in the middle. This is what compromising does. Neither spouse gets everything they want, but each gets some of what they do want. This has to be done in the right spirit to make the sacrifice of compromise work without feeling like one is losing something.
