My husband and I have been together 18 years, married for 14. Anyway, when I first met him, he was very smooth. Charming, and of course I fell for his looks. One thing I looked over was his religious upbringing. Certainly we had sex before marriage, listened and watched whatever we wanted but Church attendance was paramount to him. I am a Believer too, always was before I met him, but long story short, recently my husband had a change of heart during the pandemic. This quarantine thing has messed him up, me on the otherhand am a homebody and the only thing I miss outdoors are movies and restaurants. Other than that, I am ok.
I know how to occupy my time and try to get him to do the same. Now, my shows, music and even heartfelt beliefs are questioned, we literally argue everyday over words, job, sky, sun whatever.
I have a brutally stressful job already, and to come home and argue about a stove, food, bibles etc is driving me up the wall. I remember when we first met he said "Women are to obey!" Um, who are you? The good thing is, he been left traditional church for years now and no longer hold on to those kinds of beliefs. Believe me, I enjoy peaceful times with God and enjoy learning to meditate on my own but not completely change what I like. Outside of that issue, I cant think of a time he ever defended my opinions, if it's a pretty woman he takes up for her cause other than mine. They can be wrong, but he defends them. He has LOTS of female friends who can "never do no wrong". I don't know. I feel happiest when he is not around. At least then there is no one to call me satan or bringer of demons just because I like what I like.
