I agree with gluten-free Mann's advice above.

You're a nurse, you get it. You can educate people, and you've tried to educate him.

He's either with you or against you in this battle. What has he shown so far?

Only you know how far you're willing to stick that line out that he continualy stomps on.

Free advice is worth what you pay for it, but I'd personally eliminate him before I'd giveup the gluten-free diet and lifestyle. Sorry.

He promised in sickness and in health, right? If he can't keep his promise in sickness with a pretty easy solution, my guess is that he definitely isn't worth the long haul. I've had a few major mistakes land in my life involving marriage. I can't say I'm not jaded, but I would bring out the big sharp tongue annd spell things out to him in no uncertain terms.

If you don't like verbal confrontation, type up how you're feeling about his abuse. (Sorry, he is abusing you.) Use a big font.

There are studies that show that verbal and visual presentations of information increase retention by over 70 percent. (Wharton School of Business, Harvard...)

Maybe give that a whirl before you start divorce action. He could be worthwhile but have a learning defecit.


Positive improvement from elimination diet. Mother dx'd by Mayo Clinic in late 1980s. Negative blood tests and Upper & Lower GI biopsy. Parathyroidectomy 12/09. Recurring high calcium level 4/10. Gluten-free 4/10. Soy & Dairy Free 6/10. Corn free 7/10. Grain free except rice 8/10. Legume free 6/11. Fighting the battle of the battle within myself, and I'm going to win!

As of 2/12, tolerating dairy, corn, legumes and some soy, but I limit soy to tamari sauce or modest soy additives. Won't ever try quinoa again!

Discoid Lupus from skin biopsy 2011, discovered 2/12 when picking up medical records. Systemic Lupus Dx 6/12. Shingles 10/12.

what is it with men and bread-boards / crumbs? Mine just doesn't get it, and my six-year old is following in his footsteps. Am thinking of banning bread full stop. Good luck!!

If the bread is a "man issue", you don't buy it. It can be kept in the "man's domain". The garage! Or the dog house!

Good point, Karen. And he can pick up gluten at all the fast food spots in town without having to contaminate the kitchen. :D

Maybe you don't have to ban the man. Just ban the gluten. The first year is the toughest, it get's better.
