I think it would be hard if I took the kids to mass by myself while he went somewhere else. We tried many churches before because I was Protestant and ot agreeing on a church was hard. We tried Unitarian to and it wasn't right for us.

I would be ok with him exploring his faith, but maybe a compromise, like once a month, we all go to mass together?
Sure, that sounds great, but would you reciprocate by having the family attend synagogue together once a month?

I don't really "get" faith or religion in general, but I don't understand why one half of a couple would feel as though his or her religious convictions should take precedence over the other's.
