He is an adult and I can't control his feelings but I would expect him to keep his word and raise our kids Catholic. If he wanted to convert I wouldn't have any right to stop him but it wouldn't understand. I wish I had some words to make it better but all I can say is I understand how you feel and I am sorry this is hard for you.
I agree completely with this.

I am Catholic and we agreed before we married that the kids would be raised Catholic. DH was a non practicing Christian when I met him. He celebrates mass with us ( not communion) and is involved with the kids church activities. If he suddenly decided to convert to another religion I would be upset. I understand that it is his faith journey and I should support that, but I like the cohesiveness of one religion in the family. My children understand the people have different beliefs but I think it would b difficult to celebrate two faiths that different in the same house.

While they are both Abrahamic religions there are some major differences that I wouldn't be comfortable dealing with. So while I am sure it isn't a popular opinion to have, I would be upset. OP I totally get where you are moving from.

I still feel like I am not explaining this very well.
