I have a question about the relationship between David and Michael in the Bible. What caused Michal to "change her mind" about David. At first she loved David (1. Sam. 18:20, 28) probably out of admiration because David's actions in killing DGoliath and his wise behavior caught her attention. Michal saved David's life from the persecutions of Saul (1. Sam 19). She actually lied to save a life which happens several times in the Bible. Later on Saul gives Michal to someone else but David reclaims her as his wife. But not much later in 2. Sam 6 we read that Michal despised David when he publicly worshipped the Lord. What happened in this relationship that at first Michal loved David but later she despised him? I ask this because I have observed a Christian marriage fall apart. At first the wife loved her husband but then years later despised him, refused to go to church with him and got deeper into worldliness and then divorced. Similar to David and Michal, there were also tensions between the 2 families. The wife's family went to a different kind of Bapist church and tried to get the husband to come. When he didn't they got bitter against him. It is always sad when Christians lose focus and start puttting church membership ahead of salvation and usually the husband is the head of the home and makes the decisions on family worship. Not the in-laws. In 2. Sam 21 it gets even worse when David takes the 5 sons of Adriel and has them hung by the Gibeonites. These 5 sons were brought up by or possibly even born to Michal, David's wife, who was barren at one time. Do you think that the battle between the house of David and Saul took a toll on the relationship between David and Michal? Or do you see something else in the scriptures that got David and Michal apart?
