Catholic dating non christian
Mixed Marriages Question: I am an evangelical Christian and I have been dating a wonderful man who is a devout Catholic.
We are concerned that we will not fully agree on important things if we consider marriage.
It became clear to me that our yokes were vastly different. Being with him was akin to having one person pulling in one direction and the other one pushing in another.
Despite the red flags from concerned family members and friends, I pressed on because I did not want to start over.
I was born to a Christian father and a Taoist mother.
God had finally given me the courage to end my relationship with *Duncan, a non-believer.
Even as I spent more time with Duncan, the Holy Spirit would tell me time and again that I deserved someone who knows God personally and intimately.
Duncan also did not want kids—he saw them as a burden, while I saw them as a gift from God.
I was convinced that after I shared the Gospel with Duncan, he would believe in Christ and our yokes would then be equal. One year into our relationship, I began to hear God speaking to me. I had dreams of Duncan and I constantly fighting, of Duncan with another girl, and of me being in church with a guy who was not Duncan.
While I struggled to make sense of these dreams, I sensed the Holy Spirit prompting me that the relationship was wrong.
I have always been amazed at my dad’s boldness in marrying a non-believer, and his patience and trust in God to make the flower bloom as he planted the seed of God’s love in my mother’s heart. Duncan and I were colleagues and we worked on many projects together.
Day by day, we became closer and we started hanging out exclusively.
