Eastern and Latin Rites Canons

Looks like my first attempt to post this topic didn’t go for some reason, so I will try this again.

I read a while back (can’t remember the source) that if a Latin Rite Catholic later goes exclusively to a Eastern Rite Church but does not make a formal change of Rites they will still be subject to the Canons of the Latin Rite. No real explanation of what this entailed was given. I assume it would means that this might make some difference in how their children were to be baptized or funeral arrangements if they passed away. There are obvious differences in the liturgies and minor variations in the interpretation of the teachings. However, I am not sure the extent of what the attachment to either Rite entails in the day to day worship and events in that person’s life.

Anyone care to offer thoughts or an opinion on this?
