Ask Christ to heal my wife and marriage
Added 1 month ago
My marriage fell apart after the birth of our second child. She withdrew affection and became hypercritical. I reacted poorly. There was never any type of abuse, infidelity nor secret habits (booze, gambling, etc), but she was checked out and in time I felt angry and worthless. In February 2020 she declared she no longer loves me. I fell into an emotional abyss. The only light I found in that pit was Jesus. Before then I was a life long atheist. I vowed to pick myself up, fix my resentment, and love myself again.
I pray and read the Bible daily out of gratitude and love for our Lord. My wife became angrier as I was feeling better. Months later she asked for a divorce. Since then she has seen that the changes are genuine. We’re still married and get along but she remains at arms length. Recently she revealed that the birth triggered her abuse as a preteen and she couldn’t talk about it. She still suffers and can’t get close to me on any level: mind, body, spirit. Please pray for her and us
