Liturgy & Liturgical Law Forum: Respect for Spouse
Respect for Spouse QUESTION from Shirley on May 13, 2002 Peace in Christ. Please forgive the length of this question but I really need an answer a.s.a.p. This is probably not the correct forum but I am at my wits end and need help.

I feel terrible about having all these things when there are children out there who have very little. I feel as though I am being choked out of the house (and I'm not kidding)! I have tried to reason with him, talk to him about this but he becomes so angry.

I would appreciate your reply a.s.a.p. In Christ
