Do you have them or do you keep to yourself like me? I have never had friends as an adult. As a child yes. Are friends even important? I have gotten along fine without them but some people think it is wrong that I do not surround myself with friends in the family or outside the family. I do not want people to know much wbout me. A lot of what you share can be turned around by people. My husband is very popular & has many friends. I do not hang with them. I do not have anything in common with them anyways & that includes the wives or girlfriends.

Yes, of course. Many friends. God made us to have relationships with others. We are to keep one another accountable, bear one another's burdens, pray for one another, weep and rejoice with one another and "sharpen" one another as the Bible says. Friendship is important. Fellowship is important. Again, in reference to my response to one of your other posts.... Its interesting and inconsistent in my opinion that you have no friends but are interested and "allowed" to seek online friends. It's just all sounding fishy to me.....

No I am not male. This is how I live. I can not help it if I do not share the same things as some of the other women here. There is no untruthfulness. Down? Yes. I. Am. No other way for interaction. Online is better. There a other ladies I know that live the same in the current church as well as past churches I have been to.

Well tell us about yourself then. Do you have children? What brings you to the just mommies board? I've haven't seen any posts about children or TTC. What is your religion/denomination? I would like to know what denomination teaches that women are not to read their Bibles, witness to unbelievers, aspire to be the first female president or do anything else outside of having your husband tell you whether or not you are "allowed" to take the next breath. It just sounds VERY unbelievable to me. I see no one is really responding to your posts and I'm sure that's why. Everything is SO bizarre. Now if this is all true then seriously...you are in an abusive situation and need help. Where is your family? What is your relationship to mother, father, siblings, aunts, cousins?

virtuous......if you are in this type of situation, then I agree with MAMAGINGER....this is not healthy and is abusive. You are being isolated which is a HUGE factor in abusive relationships. For whatever reason, if this is truly what is going on, then I think a part of you knows it too because of the way that you are presenting it here. There is a tone in these posts that clearly show you are unhappy and uncomfortable with your life but are simply, surrenderring to it. If you really believe that your husband is a 100% right and you need to obey and trust HIS every judgement then I urge you to find out for yourself. Surely, if your dh is so sure of what the BIBLE REALLY SAYS then you looking into it, expressing your own interest, taking your own time to strengthen your faith, should not be a problem.

Can you tell me where in the bible it actually confirms the things you say your husband tells you? If you can't, then you are listening to him over GOD. GOD warns us of taking other people's word and interpretation over his. His word is meant for EVERYONE. I am praying that if this is truly your situation that you free yourself because it is quite disturbing to hear. Just remember, that as popular or as knowledgable as your dh may seem, even in the bible is speaks of the "anti-christ" as being very charasmatic. NOT SAYING your dh is the anti-Christ, just saying that don't be let astray by people that portray themselves as all knowing prophets. This is usually a sign they are far from it!
