Re: My husband is mad at God.
Thanks all for your responses. Some I agree with and some I disagree with. I am expressing worry about something that is not necessarily causing a negative effect on our marriage but remains to be a slight concern for me. I don't think my husband is an athiest and is simply being cordial about it. I certainly do not believe I am being judgmental. I was actually concerned for my husband's inability to remain centered without turning to substances such as alcohol or weed. Recreational use if cool as long as it does not become an abusive habit. This may be opening another can of worms but just as some use meditation to remain centered, I ultimately want my husband to have a positive alternative to coping with daily stresses. For me, I pray and lean on my faith to keep me grounded, as I previously mentioned in my initial post. For him, when asked, he responded that he relies on himself. I just felt that was shaky ground to stand on because I next asked, what if you don't know what to do, then what? He then said he always knows what to do but at that point I felt he was just being a smart-ass. But I will continue to do what I know works for me and be patient as some of you mentioned as he finds his own way. Who knows, maybe I'll rub off. Maybe he'll find some alternative way to cope with stressful events. But let me just make clear, I definitely knew who I was marrying and love him as he is. I just want the best for him as his wife and I know how much of a better woman I am because of my belief and values grounded in God.
