I thought it is routine procedure for deed to have the names of both husband and wife. You've been married only 1.5 yrs. Not enough time for you or your husband to learn how to tell what and how much to whom. Next time, you know not to give direct answers to pointed questions. Say something like "will do whatever is best for tax purposes." And, you'll also learn to DIY when it comes to prayers. You mentioned TTC.. that is an even more Q&A prone process than buying a house. Suggestions, questions, and much more will pour in right from TTC to conception to pregnancy to delivery to first birthday. Learn how to deflect unwanted questions and comments. The best way is to deal with it right when the comment/question is delivered. Have a few ready responses: "But why?" "Why do you say that?" "Oh really?" "Nice to know" "That is a good point".
