So the situation which is becoming more pressing is the woman I’m courting is also Catholic but her parents spew anti-Catholic sentiment. I want to try my hardest to make this not hurt us but I’m not sure how it will be resolved. The mother is really the one who goes out of the way to say hurtful things while I’ve never head it from the father besides him confessing that he does hold something against Catholics but he’s always been cordial with me.
So my question, if this courtship leads to engagement do I have an obligation to ask or not to ask for her father’s blessing? I had always visioned I would but to be truthful I probably wouldn’t even listen to the answer because it couldn’t change my mind.
Has anyone else dealt with such a situation based on your religion or perhaps ethnicity?
God Bless You
