I don't know Anna... I've met plenty of atheists who treat their wives like crap, and religious men who hold them as equal partners. While it's obviously beneficial to have a partner who shares your views, I can't help but kind of bristle at the fact that you seem to attribute your good marriage to a belief system rather than to who Les is as a human being, total package.
Sorry, Karrie, I guess I could have been more specific.. In mentioning that Les is intelligent, atheist, and equinanimous, I thought it'd be accepted that he would be not overbearing and patriarchal, he'd be respectful, and considerate. He is. He's cute, too. lol
Well, I guess I should count my lucky stars that Les has a brain and is atheist. And he should count his, too, as his dinners, lovemaking, etc. would be nowhere near pleasurable if he wasn't intelligent, atheist, and equinanimous.
So, let me get this straight, men can't tell women what they should or shouldn't be...... but it's perfectly alright for you to do that.
