Suddenly DH and I feel ready to be parents, or maybe it’s just that we really love babies. We have been waiting on the babies because we have many problems, financial and religious ones. He was on disability for 3 months and now that he went back to work this wk I feel as though it wouldn’t be such a big problem getting pregnant. BUT… we have the issue of him not wanting to baptize our kids. He’s a JW and refuses to have our children baptized. When we convalidated our marriage he knew I had to make the promise of raising them Catholic, and that I had the obligation to do it, but he’s refusing now.
I don’t know if that would be a good reason to still wait. I am afraid for their souls. I wouldn’t want to bring a child to this world and play it that way. If we did have a baby now, I would have to baptize him/her against his will, behind his back, and I don’t know if that would be morally acceptable.
I wated to see if anyone could help me. I’m not here for people to tell me if I should have a baby, but I am here to see if what you guys would do in this situation. Do you think it’s alright to have a child when stuggling w/this at home? Or do you think it is for the child’s soul’s sake not to have one yet…??? What about baptizing them w/o your spouse’s approval, basically behind his/her back? Would that be morally acceptable? I’m soooo confused!
We were at a party today and we said, “yes, let’s try now”, but I’m so worried for their souls… :crying:
