Re: My Husband is Delaying our Church Wedding
It's not important to him, or something he thinks is a priority.
Why did you not have a church wedding the first time?
He probably has told you the reasons he doesn't want to (or wants to delay it) but you might not be really listening to him because your heart is set on the wedding.
Maybe he just really doesn't want to have anything formal, thinking people won't be excited to be there because you're technically already married after living together so long.
From my personal standpoint, I wouldn't want to be in front of a crowd (even of friends and family), and a lot of people don't like to be the center of attention like that.
It could be that he feels like he hasn't been dedicated to the church, so doesn't feel entitled to a church wedding.
Another possibility is that he thinks it's a waste of money, or the money could be better spent on other things.
Has he said any of these things? Maybe he doesn't want to let you down, but really just doesn't want the church wedding.
Can the two of you come to a compromise on it? Ask him what his biggest concern is with it, and try to work together on compromising to where you both could be happy. For instance, if his biggest concern is about the expense, trim the expense more.
For you, is it only about feeling like you're married in God's eyes, or about the wedding itself?
