Maybe I am just bored so I have read more today. It seems like there are many moms who are having a battle with their DH about raising the kids. Both from Christians and non Christians. Do you talk about this before you start your family? My husband and I knew our children would be raised in a Christian home.
Were you in agreement from the get go or did you know you would go along something just to avoid a fight? Did things change after you started your family?

When we first got married we were both Catholic and agreed to raise the kids in the Catholic faith and send them to Catholic school. Along the way I had some very bad dealings with our old church and it turned me off somewhat. Then some encounters with some very mean Christians both on CM and IRL turned me off Christianity completely. So now dh and I are not at all on the same page. However, I still respect the promise I made to raise the kids in the Catholic faith. If they choose another path as they get older then that's fine by me as well. What's really funny is that he's still Catholic, but I'm the one who signs the kids up and takes them to religious ed and to youth group and we even make it to Mass occasionally. Dh never goes. It's weird actually, but the kids like the Church and so I keep it up for them until they can take themselves or until they decide on another path.

I am Pagan, Eric is Agnostic. Honestly we didn't talk much about religion and didn't go into extensive details about how we would raise our kids BUT we were best friends for well over 18 years BEFORE we started dating. We have run into a few very minor snags but nothing serious...so minor in fact I can't remember the details. If there is something we don't completely agree on when talk about it and come to some sort of compromise.

Next question overall
How old were your children when you left them home alone for the first time?
