Long story short I attend Protestant Church but my beliefs have changed to the point that I believe the Orthodox/ Catholic Church are the true church. Forced with a choice I am probably 80/ 20 in favor of converting to Orthodoxy rather than Catholic.
My wife is very against it and hinted at it causing enough of a problem that it could lead to her divorcing me eventually if I did convert. Much of her reasoning comes from simply desiring for us to go to church together on Sundays. Because of this I have been reconsidering becoming Catholic because I could go to Saturday mass. This is in spite of the fact that family aside I would probably be Orthodox by now. Even though I find Orthodoxy more compelling I think that I would be able to put myself under the authority of the Catholic Church and accept the doctrines that I don’t agree with out of obedience.
FWIW, an Orthodox priest several years ago told me to slow my process and not convert now and risk hurting my family. This makes me wonder that I may never be “able” to become Orthodox without it potentially ruining my marriage. I guess I see maybe the Catholic Church as a middle ground as I could go to Saturday night mass and still attend with my wife at her church on Sunday without taking communion.
What are your thoughts on me becoming Catholic as a “compromise” so I can be part of the True Church even though I prefer Orthodoxy?
