My wife is not catholic. We’re approaching our 5-year wedding anniversary and we have a 2-year-old daughter (baptized in the Catholic Church) When we first started dating, I invited her to join me but did not pressure her at all. I believe a conversation about her conversion happened once. I made it clear to her that she was under no obligation to convert, but lately I think the is considering it (or at least thinking about it).
On the outside, the is a Catholic, she goes to mass and recites the prayers and everything, she just doesn’t receive communion. In fact, our parish recently sent our a flyer to update their directory and they had her listed as being a Catholic.
She had said a while back that if she wanted to convert, then she would have done it already. However when the RCIA classes were announced this past November and then again during the Lenten season, she has been asking me questions about RCIA classes. Questions like, what do they talk about and why does it take so long? I try to answer as best I can, but I honestly don’t know all the answers to all the questions.
My questions is what do I do now? I would be lying if I said I wouldn’t be ecstatic if she converted, but I don’t feel like I love her any less because she isn’t Catholic. I want to talk about it, but I fear it might be too early and she will see me as trying to convert her. I want it to be her decision, not mine.
