In a recent Reddit post, a user found herself in a challenging situation regarding her baby and religion. Here’s the full story.
She Grew up in a Devout Home
Having grown up in religious households, Emma and her husband initially shared the same religious practices.
She Distanced Herself From Religion
However, as time passed, Emma decided to distance herself from religion and stopped attending church.
It Caused Problems
This change in perspective and personal beliefs created a divergence between her and her husband.
She Supported Her Husband’s Beliefs
Nonetheless, Emma respected her husband’s religious convictions and occasionally attended church with him and his family.
She’s Living Back With Her Folks
Since their separation 4 months ago, Emma has returned to live with her parents.
She Understands the Importance of the Church
While she no longer attends church herself, she understands and acknowledges her husband’s desire for their son to participate in religious activities.
She Shared Her Concerns
However, she expressed concern about their 9-month-old son attending church regularly at such a young age.
She Wants to Wait Until Her Son Is Older
Emma believes waiting until their son is older and can better understand and engage in religious practices would be more suitable.
Her Baby Causes a Fuss at Church
Emma’s experiences of her son becoming fussy during previous church visits have led her to believe that he is not ready for regular church attendance.
She Had to Take Him Out
She has had to step out with her son, missing most of the service, as her husband passes him off to her.
Her MIL Accused Her of Not Being Supportive
This situation has led to tensions between Emma and her mother-in-law, who expressed disappointment in missing parts of the sermon. She believes Emma should be there to support her husband.
She Doesn’t Want to Create Problems
Emma intends not to create difficulty for her husband or mother-in-law but to make things easier for everyone involved.
Waiting Until He’s Older
She believes waiting until their son is older would result in a more meaningful and engaging experience for him.
She Feels She’s Misunderstood
However, she struggles to communicate this effectively, often feeling misunderstood and portrayed as the unreasonable one in the situation.
It’s Pointless Taking Babies to Church
Emma took to Reddit to ask whether she was in the wrong, and several Redditors sided with her, saying that she was not wrong.
One Reddit user wrote, “It’s dumb to take babies to church. They’ll cry. They don’t understand anything. It’s pointless.”
Is she Right?
Another Redditor commented, “You’re not trying to stop them from bringing the child to church. You’re just telling them that the child is likely to fuss in church so it may not be a good idea AND you’re not offering to personally care for the child if they insist on bringing the child to church because you aren’t interested in attending.”
