I’ve been Catholic all my life and so has my wife. She wasn’t raised in a house that followed the faith as closely as I did when we were kids. When we got married we both knew we were Catholic so no surprises there, however we were the ‘do just the bare minimum’ types of Catholics.
Anyway, we both stopped going to church or practicing the faith for about 10 years but have gotten back into it this year. She’s ok with just going to church and doing the precepts (which I am grateful for!) but I feel like I’ve had a complete reversion. I pray the rosary daily (sometimes more than once), been reading the Bible, going to daily mass when I can, joined the Knights of Columbus, etc.
She’s had a hard time with me joining KofC and doesn’t like when I go to the meetings. Recently I’ve been posting what saint’s day it is on social media and has told me I’m getting too religious.
I asked her how is this a bad thing? She says it’s not and that it’s just overwhelming.
At this point I can tell she’s getting frustrated so I try to calm the situation before she just shuts down and throws up the wall.
There are a few more examples but for the sake of brevity (what’s left of it anyway) I’ll leave them.
So has any other spouse dealt with this? What did you do? What’s your advice? I have no intentions of being less religious considering I would very much like to obtain salvation.
Of course I’d like to see hers obtained for her too. I pray for her daily and I know it’s His will and not mine. Any thoughts and prayers would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you and God bless.
