I will try to keep this short and simple. Should married couples be obligated to attend the same parish? My wife and I have different preferences, and are not on the same spiritual plane. My wife prefers the clappy-happy mass of the parish we currently attend, but I am more fulfilled with a more reverent traditional mass.
I recently had occasion to attend my former parish (which is more traditional) and I felt more alive than I had since I had to stop attending regularly. Now I’m thinking of returning to my former parish, or at least one where I can enjoy a more reverent mass, but my wife won’t budge from our current parish.
We talked about this, and she is okay with us attending separate masses (otherwise our marriage is fine), but what do other people think?
