I recently became an atheist after a couple of years of struggling with doubts and nagging questions about my christian faith. I have always gone to church, every time the doors were open. I began really struggling with my faith and seeking answers soon after I married my christian husband. Even though he says he has never had a really strong faith and that he can't look me in the eye and tell me with certainty that there's a god, he still insists we go to church together. I have really grown to hate it; I am trying to have a better attitude but it's hard when the church spends $25,000 on special lighting just for aesthetics and then implores the congregation to give their money to starving children in Africa. Every time I express a desire to make a compromise he gets upset and it turns into an argument that leaves me in tears and him angry. What can do at this point? I'm being patient since my atheism is unsettling to him now and it's fairly new (although I have long desired to quit going to church). I also feel guilty since I'm the one who changed. I feel like my views aren't being taken seriously since literally everyone in my family and circle of friends are christians. It's so frustrating and lonely.
No, and I talked my husband out of going. I told him I'd be more "malleable" if he converted to the LDS church, but he wasn't interested. So, now none of us go. lol. He might take his sister or mother if they're visiting from across the country once or twice a year. Other than that he skips it.
