After the manner of the sticky: St. Monica, Please Pray for Our Husbands! I would like to start a similar thread because I am sure there are many husbands out there with similar situations and the issues we deal with our wives are probably much different than the problems women have with their husbands.
I ask that all you wonderful people would pray for me and my wife. As I continue to strive for a deeper immersion into the Church, my wife wants nothing to do with it, although bless her she has done things to adapt for me such as NFP.
Her mother is staunchly pro-abortion etc. When pressed by her mother last night about her views (angrily) on abortion my wife remained silent. I do not know how to take this action but I hope it means she doesn’t feel the same as her mother and not that she just did not want to get into it with either of us. I tried to find out what she thought about it after her mother had left but got nowhere. I love my wife dearly and abortion terrifies me. It is one of the things that makes me dread having children (especially a girl), although I want children more than anything. I would be crushed if my child had an abortion, I cannot put it into words. I have skeletons in my closet from my teenage years as does she. I only pray that she seeks forgiveness and one day may find Christ! Please pray for my wife, her mother, and our family. I am the only catholic in the group and always find myself defending my faith instead of them defending their actions. :o
Admirable is the Name of God
