I am 52. My future ex wife and I have a 15 year old son who loves astronomy and gymnastics. I am going to be getting divorced from the same woman for the second time. The 1st marriage lasted for some 20 years. I ended up in a psyc ward for 4 weeks and was a mess for 4 years. We were both raised as Jehovah's Witnesses but I left that religion and less than 3 weeks after leaving she said she wanted out of the marriage. 4 years ago I went back into that religion and a year later remarried her. Within a year after remarriage I was on my way to becoming an atheist which I now am. Our 15 year old son sees things more my way and this is really ticking her off. I felt and still feel that I have a right as his father to equally explain the reasons for my take on religion and God. The way this religion operates with it's control freak nature along with her gross intolerance of my views is actually making me more of an active atheist than ever. They consider me an apostate because I not only disbelieve but I am actively involved with telling people about the snares of getting involved with this faith. The problem is that we are still very attracted to each other physically and she even admits that since I have embraced atheism I am a much better husband and much more rational. I have been very instrumental in helping our son who is dyslexic because of researching peer reviewed info on the subject instead of consulting old men who run a religion that is in many cases still entertaining bronze age ideas. I have gay friends. She feels that they are a danger to my son. Our son even disagrees with her because he knows that any friends that I hang with wouldn't even think of hurting a child. I am broke but still maintain a very good government job. I am not the kind of guy that likes sleeping around with all kinds of women especially the drug addicts around me. I love relationships. Sex is wonderful but so is the emotional needs of BOTH sexes. I have even taken up tobacco pipe smoking because it calms down my stress.I feel like I am in a cage that will take years to come out of.
