I am engaged to a wonderful man who is a christian and is very active at his church. When we first met, I was honest with him that I didnt attend church on a regular basis. The church he attends three times a week happens to be his ex wife parents church. His ex wife father and mother are the pastors of this church. His ex wife as attends the church. Since we started dating, my life has completely changed for the better. He has taught me so much and im just a better person overall. I even started attending a friends church on a regular basis because I didnt feel comfortable going to his church considering the situation. We got engaged two months ago and the more we talk about marriage, the church situation is becoming a huge issue for me. I expressed to him that im extremely uncomfortable with the idea of worshiping at his church when we get married because he has an extensive history there with his ex wife (10 years) and he is very close to her family. I suggested that I would like for him to find a church of his choice for us to worship together when we get married. I feel it is very important for a family to worship together and never go into a marriage divided and separate. He told me that he loves his church and the Lord has him there. I on the other hand, want a fresh start somewhere with my soon to be new husband. Am I wrong for feeling this way and wanting to start my marriage out together? Please help!!!
