Here's the deal, my family is religious, and I am not, I never have been. My DH family is not religious either. For the most part my DH and I do not believe in God, we just believe in leaving a good life, doing what is right, giving to those in need, basically we believe what you put out in this world is what you are going I get back! We never impose out thoughts and believe onto others.
I am pregnant with our first child, which we are so excited about, Yay! Anyways my aunt called the other day and was like I found my sons old christening suit, if its a boy you can use it when the baby gets christened. I replied that we are not christening the baby and she was upset! She couldn't understand my not after I explained myself. I basically told her I don't attend church, you know I don't believe in God why am I gonna pay the church to bless my baby if its not something I, the mother, or my DH believe in.
My family tells each other everything, before you know it I am getting phone calls from everyone, yelling and cussing me about our decision. I let them say what they had to say and calmly I replied this my child I will raise it how feel is right, if there is an issue we can all sit and discuss it like adults, thank you and I hung up. Am I wrong? This is my child after all, my moms first grandchild and my grandmothers first great grandchild, all I want is them to respect our decisions, my family would be the one do something like christened my child behind my back... And if they did that I would be highly pissed and probably wouldn't leave child with them again.
