I was not sure where to post this thread- but it pertains to my marriage, so I decided to post it here.
I know not everyone has the same way of interpreting the bible, but I believe the Bible is clear that the man is the spiritual head of the household.
After getting married, my husband and I had many issues in our marriage. He moved out for a year, started, but quit multiple counselors, said he was only a Christian so that he could marry me, but then after meeting with my pastor, and eventually moving back home, said that he is a Christian, and he does believe in god. And went to church almost the whole time he was moved out and still goes.
With all that being said, he does meet with our pastor once a week in a mentor capacity. I know the pastor tell him things like not to curse me out, to apologize for wrong things he does, and to lead us in devotions. These things do not always work out, but one of the things it seems that he does not even try at is the prayer or bible reading.
I have asked my pastor about this, and he took the responsibility off of me (I used to try to get him to have devotions with me) saying that it is my husbands job and I don't need to nag him, or continually ask him, just to continue to pray for him and have my own personal devotions. Sometimes if I am really stressed, I will ask him to pray for me and he will pray with me right there on the spot, but that is once in a while. He has told me he does not pray and listed a few reasons.
My question is, is it wrong for me, if I want to try, to lead us in devotions/prayer/reading? I have a passion for the Lord and I just wish that he/we could connect on that level. We still have major marriage problems and he will not go to counseling.
