  • Therapy. I don't think a movie can save a marriage, Christian or not.

  • Try looking at the books and movies and see what you can take from them that doesn't involve God/religion.

  • What you can do is look within yourself and ask what you can do. You need to see what you bring to the relationship and how you can better communicate with him. You can't change him but you can work on yourself.

  • Marriage counseling. Communication, trust and a shared wish to continue and work on the relationship.

  • Separate for a few months to give each of you time apart to grow and to learn decision making on each own's merits and downfalls. Every few nights call CONTACT it's a part of United Way and it's not affiliated with a religious organization. They're trained volunteers to listen to people in crisis and to guide them towards resolution to get peace eventually in their lives, sometimes right away sometimes a long long time.

    Also google Atheist moms here on cm. I'm sure there's a group or two.
