I need some advice. I find have found myself in the process of conversion (being drawn more and more to the Catholic Church) while married to a cradle Catholic who is lukewarm about their faith (doesn’t accept all the teachings). We have a loving relationship and everything seems great between us but as I become more interested in practicing the teachings of the Catholic faith, I can see us running into more issues (such as contraception). While he has been somewhat supportive of my endeavors by going to church with me and not openly criticizing all the reading on the faith that I have been doing, I still feel continuing down this path is going to be a very difficult road. Yet I feel it is something I need to do.
We began our marriage as an extremely compatible couple (and I believe we still are), but I am afraid that my continued interest in becoming Catholic and practicing that life will be difficult (when we both met we were both on the liberal side of the political spectrum and many of our friends are extremely liberal). I feel like this transition is worth it but I don’t want to lose good relationships in the process. How do I cope with this conversion (almost) on my own? I’m excited about certain things and discoveries I am making in reading but I feel I have no one to share them with.
