 Difficult to bring up children because of different beliefs My hubby is a lovely caring man, great partner, and a fantastic father, but he’s also a raving lunatic fundie who frequents church every Sunday (sometimes twice!), goes to Bible study once a week, and reads Bible passages every morning before getting out of bed to face the day. We went through a terrible patch a few months ago when I “came out” of the atheist closet, and almost ended up separated (until his church advised him to stick with me and try to convert me so I don’t go burn for eternity in hell). Because of our different beliefs, it’s difficult to bring up children together. I’ve become so terrified of his indoctrination of them that I’ve started to resent any time he spends with them when I’m not around. It’s become a bit of an obsession, and I’ve resorted to casual questioning of them on what they did with Dad while I was at the hairdresser, etc. Is there any way we can have an easier life instead of always fighting a battle when it comes to religion?

    yes that must be very difficult to have different belief religious, or any other kind can really tear couples apart. I feel that people need to be able to believe what they want, and the other person in the couple has to swell. It is when one person wants to force the other person to believe what they believe. We have to accept your partner for who they are and there beliefs .
    everyone is ini titled to there own beliefs!
    in a partnership honouring each other and respect is key!!!
