Welcome, and thanks for sharing Smile

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

RE: Finally saying hello
Welcome to the forum family. I hope you enjoy it here as much as I do.

I too am married to a "Christian" husband. The marriage took a jolt when I finally admitted (after more than 30 years together) that I no longer "believed" and hadn't for a long time. We survived it but it was a bumpy road for a while. Now more and more he has started to question his own belief system...

Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?

We too have survived the jolt, and others as well, but he insists on raising our 8-yr-old son Catholic. I am allowing it because it's the promise I made when we got married. Though I sometimes find that difficult, I'm teaching our son to be a skeptic, and I *think* he will escape the worst of what indoctrination has to offer.

I don't think hubby will let go of his religion easily. He is as steadfast as they come, and it's part of how he connects with the memory of his mother. I dare not interfere with that. But yeah, if he had questions or doubts and wanted to come to me, I would certainly be open to talking.

How long between your coming out and your husband voicing doubts?

RE: Finally saying hello
G'day mate, and welcome to the forums. Smile

PS: It might be a good idea for you to start a new thread about the confronting issues within an atheist/theist relationship, and the upbringing of kids in that scenario—you'll invariably get more responses. This is meant to be an "introductions" thread rather than a discussion thread. Thumbsup

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
