"Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives" (1 Pe 3:1 NIV).
There's not enough room to copy and paste the article. I tried. Anyway, here's the link. What are your thoughts and experiences?
I like what the commenter said about -
"Preach the Gospel; if necessary, use words" is a famous quote which underscores that it is how we live--both in words and actions--that matter in the end.

Keep quoting scripture to your non-Christian husband and he will divorce you.

What you call 'christ-like' behavior I call being a decent human being which most of us Atheists manage to do without having a religious example to follow. You think a religious woman would have a hard time following an Atheist husband? Why should she? As long as he was kind, loving, caring, respectful and intelligent enough to make good decisions, everything should be fine. Non-religious doesn't equal drinker, smoking, fornicator, thief, adulterer and any other 'evil' you can think of.
By the way tithing doesn't have to mean money- that wife could use her talents in the church or with various charities and that would be a mature way to compromise with her non-religious husband.
