I have an acquaintance who was raised without religion. Her husband is a strong cultural Catholic and really believes that the Catholic Church is the One True Church but doesn’t necessarily practice his faith devoutly (doesn’t go to Mass every week etc) but insists his wife be Catholic. I also know his first wife who converted under the same pressure and then later left the Church. He had his first marriage annulled and married his second wife and insisted she convert. She flat out told me that she didn’t care one bit about any religion and that when she went through RCIA every week they’d ask her if she was getting out of it what she needed and she would reply, “I’m only here because I’m getting married” so at least she was honest.
I’m not posting this to judge her because maybe she will grow into the faith but should the Church really allow conversions just because someone is marrying a Catholic and does her husband have some sort of accountablitity for encouraging this? I’m not trying to get anyone in trouble, it just seems off.
