I got pregnant as at 18 with a guy i had only been with 5 months. I do/did love him and we ended up getting married. I have been a christian since i was young and grew up in the church. I really got led aways from God during this time and obviously made so bad decisions. Since we have had another child and he does go to church with me. However, he doesn't really know much about religion. He says he cares. But it doesn't seem like he does cause he never will talk to me about it or pray with me. I want to raise our children to love God, he says he wants the same, but his actions speak otherwise. I don't want to divorce him but i feel at a complete loss. Now i see we are so different. Can this work? I pray abou this but haven't noticed change. I do have faith that God can change and does so in his perfect timing but i feel soooo lost right now!Answer Question

I think it's difficult but I wouldn't divorce someone without putting in a lot of work. If in all other areas you are happy I don't think this should be a deal breaker. Try accepting him and this feelings about God and Religion, that is what you would want from him. If he is respecting your religious views then you should do the same. He isn't stopping you from teaching your kids about your faith. Of course pray that you can find some common ground to come together on. I hope it works out.

In marriage there are many opportunities to deny ourselves, take up our cross and follow the Lord in holiness. You are a primary channel of grace for your husband, so concentrate on praying for him every day. 1 Peter 3:1-4 explains that husband can become believers through their wives godly behavior, rather than using words.
So above all, pray for him, and focusing your energy on being a holy wife based on Proverbs 31.
