John, Jesus led the people to His father. He commissioned the apostles to do the same once He was gone from this earth. They were the early day priest, if you will. The husband is the priest of the family and therefore given the duty to lead his family to the Father. Why would anyone NOT want someone in their lives that wanted their salvation over worldly attention? John, I love you as a brother in Christ so please don't take offence, I am just stating an opinion, but life is short, eternity isn't.
I see that you and Lina are following the Gospel message to "adminish the sinner".
One of my past work places allowed for listening to the radio at work as the labor was mostly physical. The religious programs on the air at the time were Protestant ones such as Point of View with Marlin Maddoux from Dallas, TX ( http://www.pointofview.net). I listened to the shows that were mainly cultural because in that area, as opposed to doctrine, the opinions largely agreed with Catholic views. From such programs I became very familiar with the Protestant expression, "personal relationship with Jesus Christ". What I was saying to Madonna was that a lot of people don't reach that stage early in life, but are still adequate to get married in the Catholic Church. I was also saying that I think, God gives people time to reach that stage.
