What do i do when my husband tells me i'm driving him nuts in context of my talking about God?

He is a christian but doesn't read his bible and is tired of church, and bible studies. i know the flesh wars against the spirit and i need to pray (as i have been) but this breaks my heart. last night he said, he'd be the girl and i'd be the husband as far as roles of being submissive goes. i know this is not how God intends for families to be run but what do i do when i am growing and am hungry for of God and he's had enough???

  • Less talking and more fasting and praying. Have you ever read "The Power of a Praying Wife" by Stormie O'martian? Good book! It really enlightens you on these kind of situations.

  • Let him believe and worship how he sees fit. Stop shoving your way down his throat. Respect his boundries.

  • You should hold equal but different roles. Balance in everything.
    As for "religion"...sometimes it's not as important to your spouse as it is to you at any given time, so you just have to keep praying and being an example to him.

  • Religion is a PERSONAL -read: PERSONAL- path. Whether you have it, or you dont, again is personal. Maybe if you focused more on yourself instead of what he is or is not doing with religion that would help.

  • he'd be the girl... sexually or he wants to stay home and have you work... what do you mean. I think if you shove anything down someones throat they will turn away. maybe let him come to things on his own and let him be. There is nothing that will turn you away from the church faster than someone shoving it down your throat every time you turn around. Live the bible and let him come back to it on his own. It isnt like he is running out and braking commandments... he simply isnt where you are. leave him alone.

  • Show him God's love. Don 't turn him away with saying things he's not wanting to hear. God invented married sex. It's all good. Don't judge dh for wanting fun sex. God wants you to be a submissive wife so submit to what dh wants.

  • Just pray. Find others like at church to talk about your spirituality

  • Stop pushing. Let him believe and worship the way he choses, the way that makes him comfortable.

  • if hes otherwise a good man, God says follow him.

    My husband was the same, turns out he was craving a more pious religion, Christianity not to offend you is kinda of annoying. Its really flawed. Anything man made is bound to be..

    God is all knowing and perfect he made laws for everything way before christianity. Chrsitianity doesn honor Gods rules and laws, it can really frusterate someone who has been trying, which sounds like your husband has. He tried out of respect for your beleifs.

  • Stop the preaching for one thing.
    You do your thing and let him do his.
    If you want someone to follow you....lead by example not by non-stop nagging.

    Christ didnt hound people to believe his words,etc...he taught and then let them decide and showed them by his example what he meant.
