"I can understand what you're going through. Women tend to be more religious, and I hope she finally sees that marriage and love are far more important than some wrathful, manipulative deity/church. Don't assume that the rest of the…"

"Rob: Personally the only advice I can offer is that you try to reason with her and try to make her understand why it is that you have no belief in God. Tell her your reasons, give her your best arguments as to why you think God belief is pointless.…"

"I am so sorry that you are having to go through this, Rob. Ouch. My suggestion is little different from many others so far. Rather than trying to work hard to present your case or show your wife why she might be wrong, it might be best to focus on…"

"Oh My GOD.  This is bad, dude.  Not that i need to tell you that.  I wouldn't call you dude if you knew your name.  I'll call you COA, or Cal, for short, I guess.  So, Cal.  I am an atheist, and became one…"

"Hi Rob! Just a few thoughts on your situation: yes, give her time, and in that time be the same lovely husband that she's always known. She needs time to process the information. Have you considered getting some couples counseling? Do you think…"

"Not only did it take courage to tell your wife it also showed your commitment to a honest relationship.  Good luck    "

Future replied to Rob's discussion My story
"What pisses her off more - that you are an atheist, or that you don't believe in the Judeo-Christian god? My guess is the latter. Maybe she needs to consider the oddity that is how people become so entangled with the religion they identify…"

"I'm sorry I have no help no offer, but after reading your story it seems to me that your wife has been a closet xtian all the time. So don't feel bad about coming out."
