"Failing" their husbands by too much Church time? That's a new one. ;)
If your husband has no problem with it, and you're not neglecting special time with him, or your family, then I see no issue. If anything, wives should encourage their husbands to go to things like this.
Yes, one can fail their husband (or wife, or children, or work) with too much Church time.
1 Cor 7:32-34 An unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord. But a married man is anxious about the things of the world, how he may please his wife, and he is divided. An unmarried woman or a virgin is anxious about the things of the Lord, so that she may be holy in both body and spirit. A married woman, on the other hand, is anxious about the things of the world, how she may please her husband.
However, I very much like with your second para, and agree with it! Another factor, in favor of this extra Church time, is that it is for a specific, reasonably short period - just the month of October.
To velvetsky (the OP), I would encourage you to attend these extra devotions in October - but keep in mind that it is a personal commitment only, so If anything prevents you from attending, then that's OK.
re: "And also shouldn't God be before my husband and family?...". Yes, but God has given you your marriage and family (with all its limitations and compromises) as your path to Him. Only in the most extreme circumstances (such as your husband trying to "forbid" you from attending mass) should you neglect your husband or family for God.
I hope you find something wonderful in you weekend masses and rosaries, Velvetsky! Our parish will be having extra rosaries in October. We always have rosary before daily mass, but in October we have a special evening rosary, once a week.
