Drinkers tend to rely on drink before they can have fun. With minimal support on my side and going against everything I had grown up learning, I had to trust my relationship with God. If you try to deconvert her I suggest indirectly at first. I can't complain about the first 24yrs. She views patriarchy as a quality of God. We need to believe fully and then we make choices, not the other way around. Mine was in California, back in the 70s.
I've supported him for 5 years, taken on that Doctor's Partner role, put my ambitions on the back burner, and it hasn't done a lick of good. Anyway, you got yourself a treasure.

My wife chose me, but most people aren't so lucky. I don't mean to be rude, but she's not gonna give up her "nonsense". I knew a woman who married a man who converted to the church and she spent the rest of their married life telling him he was not good enough.
