Re: DH wants to convert. I dont understand...

I'm a little puzzled - what makes you feel deceived?

I confess, I'm rather more in the position of your husband - I was atheist when I married my husband [who calls himself Jew(ish), haha] but am thinking about becoming Quaker. I know my husband is not interested in joining with me, and that's completely fine - but I would be deeply hurt if he suggested that I owed it to him or our marriage *not* to explore or fulfil my spiritual/ethical persuasions. I'm not contemplating religion for his sake or mine - I'm trying to find my way in the world, and it would be unthinkable to me not to have the support of my spouse. He, after all, is part of my world.

Is there something specifically the matter with Judaism in your view? Would it be different if he wanted to convert to the Baptist church? are you uncomfortable with the increasing religiosity of your husband, or the particular faith he feels drawn to?

I know this can't be easy for you, but I'm sure it's no less perplexing - even agonizing - for your husband.
