I am a Catholic and my husband is Lutheran. I am pregnant right now with our first child. We were married in the Catholic Church and he agreed to raise our children in the Catholic Church. I want our baby to be baptized in the Catholic Church, but the godparents both need to be Catholic, which makes his family unable to be candidates. He will be very upset about this. What do I do or say?
Also, we live in a rural area with only Lutheran elementary schools. I do not want my child to go to a Lutheran school; I want my child to go to a Catholic school but there are none in the area. He is fighting with me about it because he says the education is good at a particular Lutheran school. I believe my child’s faith is more important, and would sooner send them to public school with religious education through my Catholic church. Can someone give me advice or let me know how I can get through to my husband that the Catholic faith is very important? He is strong in his faith, but does not practice his faith as much as I practice mine. I tell him about the Catholic faith as I learn more about it, but he just thinks all Christian faiths are the same.
