  1. @PrayerWarrior thank you for your help and prayer. 😁
  2. Unfortunately, that wasn't an example of putting his foot in his mouth. Since he has told me that I'm number 3 on his list, his words and actions have supported his position. He tells his mom things before me. He can cancel our plans to Uber but he can make a point of making sure his plans for us to take his mom out happen even if he reschedules because he's too tired or he wants to Uber. I don't know what to do. I'm a very weak Christian. I want to tell him how I feel but one time he told me feelings change so maybe I need to let my feelings run their course?! Maybe I'm being irrational but I feel hurt, as if I'm in so weird love triangle with my husband and his mom.
  3. It's been up and down. The other day he told me that he has life insurance now and his mom told him not to tell me. Cause, I guess she thinks the money would make me greedy and doesn't trust me.
  4. @missmuffet He told me today. We've been married for almost 5 years.
  5. I was just wondering about something. My husband told me I was his third love. As it should be Jesus is number 1 (but life has caused him to slip up) His mom is number 2 and I'm number 3. It bothers me because I thought we were supposed to put each other above others but and live in a way that God was at the center of our relationship and our lives. I still a little tired when he told me this but now my mind has enough time to pick it apart. I don't know maybe I'm over thinking this. Lately, if I evenly slightly disagree with something I just let it be because I don't know how to approach it or don't to seem disrespectful. Is this something I should have commented on or should I just respect what he said for his honesty?
  6. He basically wants to move with his family back to NC (It's like he cannot think for himself). He's making the decision to move because his family wants him to. He cites his mom as not wanting him to stay here by himself (she doesn't want to be without him). Yet if I cite my a failing health issue as a concern about staying in Michigan, I'm putting my family before him but he's doing the same thing by allowing them to make his choice to move. He doesn't understand. I don't know what to do.
  7. Anytime I attempt to talk about it he just says that his parents wouldn't want him to be alone. That if I don't move with him and his family, his parents will advise him to divorce me. And he didn't seem to have any problem with saying it either. It's as if my concerns/feelings do not matter. 😟.
  8. I had a purple bracelet with white letters. I wish I knew where that bracelet went because I could use a reminder of W.W.J.D.
  9. Thanks everyone for your help. He still doesn't understand that we are yoked to each other and not his parents. Help what do I do? It sounds like the move is imminent! What am I going to do?
  10. I never know what to put in an introduction post about myself because it feels so awkward to talk about myself. Anyways, I found this forum in hopes of finding good sound advice and fellowship. In relation to my Bible reading struggles I would say that I'm definitely a newbie to Christianity. I'm in general a very studious student but I'm struggling with starting and maintaining a Bible study so clearly this has stunted my spiritual growth. I've been married for 4 years. 3 months into my marriage my mother died. I'm still struggling with that loss even four years later. I'm struggling to be a "good wife". And I just feel like a mess. My husband and I used to have a good church solid fiery surmons and we attended weekly bible studies. But the families that were part of the Bible study talked crap behind my husband's back so we stopped attending both. My husband is working towards getting back to where he was spiritually acknowledging that he has back slide. Currently, there's been talk of us possibly moving to NC.He's from NC originally and all of his extended family is there. It all depends on if his dad retires in 6 months or not. If he does he's moving his whole family down there (including us). He told me I'm supposed to go where he goes because as a wife I'm supposed to go wherever he goes. My husband's parents think that if I join their son in the potential move that I'm going to break his heart. Even if he truly does want to move back to his home it seems like he's allowing his parents to super imppose their will on him. It's got me feeling stuck in the middle between them and my own family. The last two times that it came up he said I have to go wherever he goes and that his mom wouldn't let him stay in Michigan. I'm from Michigan. My famy and I are from Michigan. I have a grandma who is 90ish and an uncle's whose health isn't strong. To be separated from my family in this situation would break me. Inspite of our mutual stalemate we did pray asking for God's will to be done in this situation. Except it sounds like my husband has already decided on the move be because he uses "When" alot. I told him the other day that we are supposed to be yoked to each other but we are both allowing how our families would feel in the situation control how we relate to each other and our future plans. He passively agreed but he doesn't seem to fully understand. His mother is sensitive so I don't know how to talk to her about this. I know I need to continue being prayerful about this issue but I could also use some insight from an experienced married woman. I don't know how to handle this. He's already dreaming of moving back home. So talking about it has gotten tough. I love him but I'm feeling pressured into proving it with this potential move. I don't know if he truly wants to move or if his parents are influencing him. We are both too close to the situation at hand so I'm asking for some sound insight. Please Help!
