I am Heavily Pregnant yet My Husband Wants me to Fast Every Week
My hubby is someone that believes in practicing all church doctrines to the core. We belong to a denomination that goes on fasting once every week. I am pregnant with our first child but he doesn’t spare me from fasting.
The problem is that, each time he sees me breaking my fast at my convenient time or sees me eating in the morning of the fasting day (if I don’t want to fast that day) he becomes so annoyed and bitter about it. He will end up shouting at me and calling me names as if I’m an evil person who doesn’t want spiritual growth or progress for my home.
He believes I must wait till 7pm to break it in church. I have tried to participate in it with my spirit, soul and body but I always feel dizzy at the end of the day. Please should a pregnant woman be subjected to fasting? Should it be compulsory or voluntary especially during pregnancy? If I’m not pregnant, I do participate in church fasting and prayer very well.
