Husband and Religion...?

My husband recently got into learning more about the bible and following the 10 commandments, which I have no problem with, I think it's great...but I feel like he has been pushing me aside and putting more time and effort into his religion...Am I wrong for feeling this way?

    It is not uncommon for a new Christian to spend much of his/her time learning more about their new-found faith. However, your husband should not neglect you (if he is). Have you asked your husband why he is so excited and commited to his faith? Have you inquired about the Lord for yourself? You need the Lord and Savior as much as your husband does (and so do I). I encourage you to read the Gospel of John; it, more than any other single book of the Bible best explains who Jesus is and what a relationship with Him is all about. Then commit your life to Christ; and you and your husband start attending church/ Many churches have classes for new believers. A good, strong, successful marriage takes 3 people: the husband, the wife, and the Lord. God bless you.

    No. If a person truly believes that marriage is the joining together of two people as one spiritual unit (which your husband ought to, if he's going down this road) then he ought to include you in this "spiritual development", make it reasonably understandable for you, and realize that his first priority ought to always be treating you with love.

    If you aren't feeling that way, you ought to convey that. However, you also ought to find out why your husband has this sudden need for religion in his life. Usually if someone has undergone a massive shift like this, it's been triggered by something. Be understanding, but also know that you deserve every consideration and affection.

    All the best,

    No, that's an understandable feeling. It sounds like he has found a new passion in life. Regardless of whether that passion is religion or golf, it's new and it takes getting used to. Although, while golfers don't necessarily feel a need to proselytize the sport to their wives, religion can be tricky.

    But it doesn't sound like this is that kind of problem for you guys, since you seem to support his studies. In which case, have you thought about joining him in his religious studies? I bet he would be real happy if you showed an interest and it could be something you two discover and enjoy together.

    interior the U.

    I think I can understand why you feel the way you do. At times I am certain my husband feels the same as you. I pray every night for the Lord to help me find ways to include him. I also pray that he understands why I feel the way I do. I see it working everyday as our relationship grows in the Word of God. Perhaps you could try something of the reverse, I have a feeling your husband would like to share time with you in the Word. At the least it could help you understand each other a bit better.

    Don't worry if your husband is in true religion, because true religion teaches their member how to love their wife as real Christian does. Read the bible and search for the real Religion. many religion today using the words of God but their intention is to collect money to their members and they do not teach the whole truth because it will affect their business(their own religion). There is only one true religion, many religion will appear as bible says.

    Yes you are wrong in feeling this way. He's excited about a new thing and it's not a bad thing either. Remember, isn't it better to have a God fearing husband than one who doesn't have principles? This is good for you.

    Give him time to settle, his heart is learning. Do you believe as he does? Perhaps you two should work on it together, God should come first..... although he should find time for you as well..... perhaps you should sit and have a talk with him, openness and honesty is always the best way, even if it feels it may hurt ....... bettter than to hold the hurt in.

    Hope it all works out for the both of you!
