I would…

– Let your DH explain the whole “I have no intention of joining my FI’s church” thing to them. After all, they are his parents, not yours.

– Consider attending a secular pre-marital counselling course to get them off your back. It can’t hurt, right? And that way it looks like a compromise.

Could it be that your in laws don’t like your FI’s frequency of church attendance and are using this as an opportunity to get him to church?


Either way, you shouldn’t get involved. Your FI needs to stand up to them and tell them what the TWO of you want together.

bassbee:  What’s it to them whether you read the bible every night? It’s none of their business and I just wouldn’t do it. Have your FI explain both of your feelings about counselling and don’t do it if you don’t feel comfortable.
