"Yes", you should stay with your husband - according to Scripture. (Romans 7:2-3 & 1 Corthians 7:13-14) The only suggestion I'd make if ther is physical abuse than get out. Why doesn't he trust you?

My spouse does not attend church with me and does not even want me to mention my pastor's name around the house. I may have contributed that by telling him what we did in church, how much money was raised etc... when I come home from church.My husband calls my pastor a hustler and a pimp. He wants no part of my church. He does not pray or read the bible with me. He is a non practicing Baptist. It is a tough spot to be in. But God hates divorce. You can separate,however, but not divorce.

More:Many Christians have divorced and gone to marry other partners. What does God say about all this? I don't know. Many leaders are divorcing. Pastors Randy and Paula White are doing it.They have many, many followers. Mega pastors. Something to think about. They suppose to be an example to the people. Perhaps you might consider getting away from this man. Life is too short to be tied down to someone you are describing in this post. Pray first. I don't want to steer you wrong.

Did your vows say "till he says he doesn't want anything to do with my Christian life?"

Pray about your marriage. Seek marital therapy. Read "The Power of a Praying Wife."

First and foremost, were you christians when you were married? I would sugest you read (1 Cor 7)

I am in your shoes as I type. I struggle daily with this, but I am commited to making my marriage last and to obey God. I really suggest Power of a Praying Wife, it is helping me so much.

Remember to have Faith is God. Give it over to Him and follow what is His will.

No we were unequally yoked when we married. Although he had been in church with me one time before. He also doesn't want children. I love him, but I want children and a family. I seek God everyday about this situation, I just want to make things right with God and my marriage if their is hope. Is their since we were different in the beginning?

If you or your children are not being cared for or abused, get out of the environment as soon as possible. There are agencies that will help you and private shelters that will assist you. And if you need to take legal actions don't hesitate to do so. You have rights and legal recourse use them. If you want to have a prayer group pray for your and you husband that great, but don't let it interfere with addressing the immediacy of a problem.

I'm no expert, but I've been thru it all w/my husband. Been w/him since I was 15, now 37. I know what God says. Read Malachi 2:16. I read "Power of a Praying Wife". Now husband goes to church, has changed his heart. He was a Christian when we married, but backslid. Been thru abuse, affairs, etc. With God, all things are possible. He loves both of you. If there's abuse, separate, not divorce. Trust God, not humans. Can give you excellent site to go to. Email me at doroth3714.

God bless.

Bessie, The scripture's pretty clear about how God feels about divorce - He hates it. If your husband isn't a believer scripture says you are to remain with him unless he wishes to leave the marriage. I too am curious as to why he doesn't trust you. Perhaps that's the key. I'd recommend "Feminine Appeal" by Carolyn Mahaney. She's a pastor's wife and has great insite into Biblical womanhood. Sometimes the needed change is in us... Pray, seek Godly counsel. Just my thoughts.

I could give you advice, but I don't know enough to give you advice.

Prayer does work. That's what I do know.
