Since I have ‘outed’ to my wife a few months ago, there has been almost total radio silence on the issue of me losing my faith. I did not tell her about me eating treif outdoors (and indoors somewhat, but I don’t want to treif up the kitchen) and I guess that would be hard for her. but I also don’t want her to hear through someone else.
So I am wondering why she does not want to talk about this important issue.
I can think of some answers:
- She has to much on her head with the household, the kids, her 50% job, all sorts of other worries.
- She is happy for things to be a little less frum (remember, I was always the ‘shvartzer’ of the two).
- She is afraid that talking about it may make things worse.
- She just wants me to be happy. But then again, she knows it is a cause of unhappiness for me to live in both worlds.
What do you, dear readers, think?
