Hang in there.... You would not believe how common that is! It is hard for the spouse to feel like you are learning more than he ever did... and that (it often seems to come to this) you plan to try hard and will seem like the better person in some ways. (I have seen this very reaction so many times. He knows he has not been living his faith, so it is hard to see someone else try.) Just lots of fear on his part about what this will really mean in your marriage. It may be wise to give him space with his thoughts right now. You will do what you believe is right and deal with the rest as it comes. These sort of situations are won by prayer and sacrifice, not by talk.
