I have purviewed these forums for a while and decided that it was appropriate to write this post. I will begin by asking you for your prayers. I am a fairly newlywed husband and love my wife with all of my heart. However, things have been rather rough a bit lately. Unknown to me (found out by accident), she looked into and started embracing a non-Christian religion. This came primarily over certain fears and, well, has needless to say caused a difficulty and a hurt in my soul, as both of us are practicing, faithful Catholics - and plan to raise a Catholic family in that light. Furthermore, it appears another problem from the past has resurged—an attraction to those of the same gender. While most earthly men in our society today do not see this as a problem — in fact, they encourage it — I as a Catholic man do not approve.
Anyhow, what I need now mostly is prayers, comfort, and Catholic friendship. And she needs the same. Also, this question is particularly for ladies out there (but men, please feel free to chime in), what is the line in terms of finding things out about a spouse? I do not want to seem like Big Brother, but at the same time, I fear if I do not find out problems quickly and act decisively, they could spin way out of control. I trust my wife, it is just the Devil whom I do not. I know that she loves me and would not do any of what I described because she doesn’t love me, doesn’t want to be Catholic, etc.? I honestly think it is the Devil trying to play on temptations and fear. Should I just sit back and pray for the best? Or, rather, should I attempt to find things out? For those who are about to suggest talking about it with her, these are very touchy and emotional subjects which may, if I press the wrong button, could tear things apart and make me even less in the loop.
