My wife is a fundamentalist christian with extremely strong beliefs. Needless to say, we can get into some heated debates over the topic. Like when to tell our kids that Santa doesn't really exist (she believed in Santa until the 7th grade, WTF?).
So anyway, in 2008 I came down with a couple of non-lifethreatening conditions, one of which required surgery. A few weeks after the surgery we got into one of our discussions. I ended the discussion by just not responding anymore, and went to bed.
About an hour later she comes up stairs and wakes me up. She says that she has something she has to tell me. So I listen, and she admits to "Praying to god, while I was sick, for me to pass away if I wasn't meant for her. And if I didn't pass away, then we were meant to be together for life."
I've approached two friends with this that are Christians, one of them said it shows her love and dedication for me. While the other thinks she's insane. Both of these friends attend church every sunday.
I feel it's the same as praying for my death. My wife disagrees, and blows it off.
What do you think?
