DH doesn't want me to listen to secular music in front of the kids
My DH was raised pentacostal. I was raised Methodist. I am a Christian. However, I do NOT think that just because it isn't FOR God, it is AGAINST God. I don't think there's anything wrong with listening to music that isn't Christian music. I listen to Christian music, but there's not as much GOOD Christian music out there as there is secular, and sometimes I get BORED listening to Christian music! I am a musician. Music has been a big part of my life for a very long time! I love my music, and DH makes a huge deal about it when I listen to it in front of the kids. Lets be real, I'm always in front of the kids. I'm a SAHM, so yeah...they're around me ALL the time. I'm so tired of this fight! DH is a good man, a GOOD father, and a caring, supportive, and loving husband, but he really makes me feel CONTROLLED when he tells me I CAN'T listen to secular music in front of the kids. It's like he's telling me I can't EVER listen to secular music. He says that he is their parent too and he should be able to have some say in the types of things they are exposed to, which I agree with but ,...I feel like he's being really over protective and at the same time controlling of me. I realise that not all of you are Christian so this might not be an issue for you, but I'm sure you've all had an issue that you and your DH weren't able to see eye to eye on in regards to raising your kids. This is a HUGE HUGE issue with us. We honestly agree on MOST issues that have to do with child rearing but this is DEFINITELY not one of them and it's a huge huge fight every time it comes up. I just don't know what to do about it because it's not something I'm willing to bend on or EVER foresee me changing my mind about. What do you think?
