My son has been dating a young lady for more than a year now.
The relationship distresses me because I am fully aware that my son is having relations with the young lady (when I found this to be true, I told him that he had to move out of my home and get place of his own) This went well and I retained a good relationship with my son. I also try to have a friendly relationship with his girlfriend.
I am hoping that my son's dating relationships will lead to a happy marriage but I am worried because he refuses to consider chasity as an important step toward marriage.
But now I think there are other considerations I should make him aware of...
I feel I need to tell him that because he is Catholic that marrying a secular Jewish woman(she is unbaptised) may be a problem from the get go... I'm thinking of the dispensations that will be required, the agreement to raise the children Catholic, etc.(and I'm assuming that down the road he will come back to his faith ,possibly after he has married this young lady) He has already told me that this girl is an atheist and he is pretty sure that this will not change. He is currently on the fence about coming back to the Church.
Should I talk to him about this or should I wait...? If so, how should I approach the subject without making sound like a personal attack on this nice young lady?
