When is enough enough? Though he has never hit me or cheated on me physically(that I know of, though he has had several "internet affairs"), he is not a nice man. He is mean to me when he talks to me, we have nothing in common anymore. All he wants to do is hang out w/ his friends & drink. He spends money that we don't have. Everything is all about him, what he wants. He makes fun of me because I am a born again Christian. I am happy because God gives me happiness, but I am unhappy at the same time. He is going out tonight w/ his brother and a couple of guys from work (who are not good influences on him). I am afraid that he is going to cheat on me. I try to be a good wife, I bend over backwards for him. I just don't know what to do. Advice? Kind words? Prayers?Answer Question

Men feel threatened when God enters the picture. And people that decide to live for Christ think everything will be peachy-keen once they do - however, real life is messy: it seldom shapes up the way we want or expect it to. LOL.
My husband was the same way for a long time. It's insecurity and FEAR. Has he always been disrespectful, or just since you decided to live for Christ Jesus? Has he always gone out with the guys - or more so since you started living a different lifestyle? It could be that his behavior is a fallout reaction. That doesn't make it right, but it does make it understandable. I will pray for you. God knows the situation and He sees it clearer than we do ... (((HUGS)))

I am so afraid to be alone
You are not alone! I am here and so are other Believers who can support you and listen when you want to talk.
God is with you too! Never forget that: God is inside you, and walking beside you every step of the way. He knows and sees what we do not: TRUST HIM! We react on emotions - God understands that and HE can change your husband's emotions too. Men are over-sized children, nu? Stop struggling and give the situation over to God.
