Should I join my husband's church or not?

Should I join my husband's church or not?

Many times, we find ourselves in quite difficult situations, even stuck concerning our life as couple or family. And we ask ourselves, must I or should I join my husband"s church or not?

The bible says in Matthew 19 v 5:" For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh." Like many of you, I would interpret this part of this scripture as an "okay" to woman stay in her church and let her husband come join her at her place of worship, for those women who have a different assembly than her husband. But another scripture says: " Wife, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior." Meaning that a woman should submit to his husband as he is the head of the house. However, if the husband's church is teaching a false teaching or consider that her husband's beliefs is unbiblical, the couple should pray together to ask God to lead them to the truth. Thessalonians 5:21 :"Test all things and hold fast to that which is true." Only in prayer the Holy Spirit can reveal you what is true and lead you were you should go. Considering, you have children, what kind of example as parents you will give? Mom, go to a church and dad to a different one. Think about it, as parents and guardians before God, you have to live by example, meaning we should show unity, love, understanding, ...

Many times the choice of a worship place create an issue in marriage and result in a break up situation or a tension in the relation but remember that marriage is holy and sacred. Genesis 2:24 and Ephesians 5: 31-32. You can have different tastes in a worship styles, preachers styles, music, food, ... but attending different churches based on tastes can be very bad in a relation. Let's focus on effective things like choice of churches, doctrine, beliefs, aspiration, .... and put God first and let him lead you while dating each other because if it's after marriage you will discuss those issues, it can be difficult to resolve them.
