Although I love my wife, I'm not happy with my marriage. My wife became a totally different person once we were married. Before we were married she acted like she loved me and accepted me for who I was. She knew what things I liked to do, my personality, my beliefs, and the relationships with friends and family that I had. Now that we are married, she is not accepting of any of that and gets jealous if I show anyone attention besides her (like friends and family). I feel depressed often and like a slave trying to keep her happy, and I don't feel the joy in my spirit like I once did. She's not willing to do marital counseling, what can I do? Is there any hope or encouragement? We are both Christians by the way, but I don't think we are equally yoked.

I have been married to my husband for 2 yrs now. He is a recovering alcoholic whom when we first met was going to AA meetings and Calvary recovery church services. We married after 5 months of dating, which I now think was a mistake. Shortly after the wedding AA and church were history. I now find myself with a hateful, disrespectful man. He "knows" the Bible and refers to it a lot, but he is very angry, very controlling, and in my opinion downright unhappy. He uses vulgar language everyday with no respect for me. It's as if he believes he is a Christian but to me he is anything but. He talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk. We are like room mates, not husband and wife. We make love once a month if that. I feel alone and many times tempted to leave. Any suggestions or advice?

I am engaged to a man who is dealing with many difficult personal issues. He is somewhat of a fair weather Christian. These personal issues are beginning to affect me and I feel extremely unsure of who I am. His ability to openly lie has made me feel very unstable and I cant tell the difference between his dishonestly and what he likes to call, "my craziness". I have these feelings that I think most people call "intuitions". Do you believe that there is truly such a thing as womens intuition and if so, where biblically do you think those motivating thoughts and feelings come from? Would it be wise to act upon those feelings (and move on without him) or should I stay and try to be supportive of his problems, even when they hurt me?

Gen 1:28 says to "go forth and multiply." I read this not as a command to each individual, but as a statement of what God will do through humanity.

Also, too dangerous for over 40 to give birth to first child. Any Biblical backing for my side? Thanks.

This incident happened when we were boyfriend and girlfriend. I came from a strict family and he had no disciple because his father was killed when he was 7yrs old. I met him when I was 18yrs old and so was he. He cheated on me several times and out of anger which I regret had a co-worker who I seldom talked too; give me a heeky and my boyfriend found out. We have been married for 20 yrs and he has had no closure to this. He feels that I did more than that; I think he feels that way just because he had sexual intercourse with the girls he cheated on me. I would of never have done what he did to me eventhough I truly regret going along with a heeky just to get back at him. I don't know what to do and quiet frank Im tired of it and if I would do it again I would of never done that. This is the only thing he has on me. Please help

I am a single mother of a beautiful 9 yr old daughter. I have never been married. I had a troubled youth and had my daughter at an early age. I am a Christian, and I try daily to walk by faith. I am closing in on 30...I want desperately to marry and to have more children/a family. I pray religiously about it and have for years. I know that this is in God's hands but my question is, why would I want something so badly for so long that God might not want for me? Is it possible that God would want me to remain single indefinitely? Am I being punished for having a child out of marriage? I'm embarrassed that my faith is so weak in this area. Thanks for your time Calvary...

My fiance and I have plans to marry this summer. We love each other and plan on being married at Calvary and to take the premarital counseling, of course. Everyone we know is in favor of the union, everyone, as stereotypical as it may seem, but his mother. She's being manipulative and trying to 'guilt trip him' into postponing or even dropping the marriage plans all together. It's not what he wants, but he wants to be obedient at the same time. How can I help and encourage him?
