I just wanted to point out that the decision that me and my boyfriend have made to not bring up out child RC took months of debating. Not between me and the inlaws but between me and by Fella. For he wanted to christen baby RC just to keep family happy, it took me a long time to bring him to my way of thinking. Even though he doesnt believe in RC , he does believe in some sort of God. So you see if it was up to me I wouldnt even have to think of any sort of christening if i was living home in England. No one would ask me!!!!
But here its almost the done thing , no question IF i am christening child, just members of my fellas family and freinds asking when it is, the thought never even entered their heads we might not be!!!
We decided on a non religious ceremony now, and thats between me and my boyfriend. He is hoping that for his family it will be ok at least we did something. He is terriffied of telling his parents the news i can can tell you!!!!!!!!
As for some of the comments that a certain person wrote, yes everyone has a right to thier opinion, but the person must have known they were hurtful and upsetting,but water under the bridge now i hope?????
I thought alot the last week and questioned myself why i am so worried about this situation. Its not so much that i will be upsetting them, its what will be said to me to hurt me i am worried about. To give an example at christmas when we annouced I was pregnant, his dad asked me what did you go and do that for? Because we weren't married yet, and called my baby a consalation prize. I was so hurt , that every time i am round him now i am almost waiting for the next thing he will say!!
I know i have to stick up for myself and my beliefs more and that is what i am doing and will do more in the future.
