My mom does, and she's always used whatever verse that comes from in the Bible (anyone know?) as an excuse to spend more time with whatever boyfriend she had at the time. She divorced my dad when I was 5 and has been married twice since. She's now with a good-for-nothing wifebeater, but she uses that Bible verse against me and my brother.
He physically abused her once, and even though my brother and I told her she needed to leave him, she defiantly said "I put God first, my husband second, and my children third. Sorry."
I don't believe in God.
But I would NEVER put my fiance before my daughter. I just can't do it.

I put my relationship with my husband first because I believe that having a successful, happy, healthy relationship with him benefits our children. For me it has nothing to do with the Bible, just a personal belief. It has worked well for us for the last three years.

Oh hell no! Your mom sounds kind of like my dad. He stayed with my second step-mom even after she accused him of raping me (which he didn't.....she is just effing psycho) AND let her totally control the time that I spent with him. I can't stand parents that don't put their children first. I just don't get it. If my SO had a different view we would have some issues.

Well that is sad that you can't stand people just because you can't understand why they do what they do. You assume that putting ones spouse before their children will affect a child negatively because of your own experience but as with anything else, the generalization is hardly accurate when applied to the majority of people who hold said belief.
