I think, for me, the saddest thing about attending Mass is when I see a married woman unattended by her hubby. Either he had to work, or she married a non-Catholic... doesn't matter, I think it's sad. If you are married you belong next to your spouse at Mass, regardless if it is TLM or NO.
There is nothing more romantic than praying together and attending Mass together, but maybe I'm weird that way?
Jim, I so totally agree :-) When the kiddos were little we spaced them out between us. As they grew older and had better control and attention span, we moved to stand next to each other. We'd hook out little fingers together on the pew in front of us. I loved that, we were there with our family and together as a couple. After Mass, Pete would ask the kids questions about the homily on the way home. :-) Those were good times.
