Perhaps because its during this time with covid and everything? I feel like a lot of people, including myself, are underwhelmed with a lot of things. Just another thing from this year

Congratulations, OP. It is a big accomplishment, especially in a hard year like this one. Pro tip: make an effort and time to reflect on and celebrate your accomplishments otherwise you run the risk of becoming the “never satisfied” person.

I am coming to the conclusion that saying you won't raise your kids in any one religion and let your kids decide when they're older is simply a means of punting on dealing with coming from competing faith traditions (because you fundamentally cannot mix the two religions) in your own interfaith marriage at present. It's just pure conflict avoidance strategy in one's own marriage rather than a decision on how children will be raised. Am I right or wrong? Discuss...
