Hi there. My husband and I are 4 months pregnant and we have decided not to get our baby baptised and his parents are compleatly against the idea. They both are going on about how there kids were baptized and how the rest of the family will talk about us and consider us bad parents and it will make there whole family look bad. We have discussed our disision with them and they just choose not to accept it and I cant stand talking about it with them anymore. His mother called me today crying saying our baby will be going to hell and how we will be talked about in there family community and we have just given up talking to them about it but they just keep going on and on about it everytime we see them. His mother corners me in a room with just the two of us and says " why cant you just do it for me " and i have just had enough of them and its putting a strain on my husband and I because we cant seem to make them understand. I have told them its OUR baby not yours and thats that theres nothing else to talk about. They both get very angery and it turns into a yelling match between them and my husband.
now im worried if they are this discruntal about our decision now how will they act when the baby is here..im so stressed about this i dont understand why they cant just STOP talking about it and accept out decision. Has anyone else had to go through this or have any advise on what else to do. Thank you .View Thread
