I need some advice here, on several issues. First a little back ground. I was unfaithful to my wife, which I will regret until the end of time. 1 year ago we seperated and in October got a civil divorce. I was a protestant and then just recently became Catholic, she was from a Catholic raising. We were married in the Catholic church.
Since we seperated, we have become very good friends… best actually. And were trying to work things out. But then, she fell in love with another man, who also happens to be a complete Aitheist. She knows it is wrong according to the church since we will always be married and her family has approached her about it. Her response has been to look for a different religion and I am afraid for her soul… both for the fact we are still married to the church and she has been in a sexual relationship and because she is looking to leave the church and I feel he is leading her away from God.
As I said, we are best friends (and both still love each other, but her love for me is more of just a care for a friend now) I am stuck with the problem of trying to help her keep her faith and also with the fact that I am hurting inside with depression from losing the one true love in my life. I want no one else in life, but know that I cannot change her heart, so I have to just be the best friend I can be… no matter how much it hurts.
