How to save a marriage
Hi friend. While there are valid reasons for divorce (e.g., abuse, infidelity, etc.), it should be avoided whenever possible. It's excellent that you want to learn more about Christianity, and I encourage you to continue to investigate further. But becoming Christian should ideally strengthen your marriage, not weaken it. There are many Christians who are married to non-Christians. It is challenging but possible.

I suggest that you chat with the Mormon missionaries. There are over 70,000 Mormon missionaries in the world who visit people in their homes to teach them more about Jesus Christ. Most people who are interested in Mormon Christianity learn about our basic beliefs from these missionaries.

Let me know if you have any additional questions. I'm happy to help.

Hi! It's so great to hear that you want to convert. I can't even begin to tell you about the blessings that continue to pour into my life. The gift of the atonement is insurmountable.

That being said, you made a commitment to your wife, you have a duty to do the best you can to honor it. I'm sure it's difficult maintaining a household when you have differences in your faith. However, as you grow spiritually, you may very well find your relationship with your wife strengthened. You have a duty to lead your wife closer to God and be an example of Christ-like love and compassion. Your example may very well be what she needs.

I encourage you to visit http://www.lds.org and chat with the missionaries. If there's a Visitor's Center in your area, you may want to stop in and speak with them in person. You can even visit an LDS church on Sundays and see if you can speak with a bishop for guidance on your marriage and your changing faith.

Whatever you do, don't give up on your wife, marriage, family simply because you have a difference of faith. Exercise patience and trust in the Lord to guide you. And pray. Pray and keep your eyes, your ears, and most of all, your heart open for answers. Our Heavenly Father knows who you are. He knows you (and your wife) by name. He wants you and your family to be happy. Do your part and give it time.

I wish you the absolute best.
