Hi to make a long story short, I am dating a wonderful man who almost a year ago was told by his spiritual leaders in the seminary program he was part of that they were letting him go. They told him he was free to date and live the life of a late twenties man. Fast forward to now, we’ve been dating a couple months or so, and there are strong feelings between us, however both of us are some what scared that he might go back to the seminary. He has a meeting in a few months with his spiritual advisors from his former program, and is not sure what they’ll say. He also said that he has to wait two years from his release date to reapply.
What I wonder is if anyone has any advice on how to handle this on my side of things? I already love him, and want to see where we could go. But am so afraid of the unknown.
Has anyone dealt with this before? Does anyone know how often a seminarian who is let go of, is accepted back or asked to come back?
Any advice would be so greatly appreciated. I’m constantly praying and asking for God’s help with patience and understanding for all of this, but I’ve never known anyone with this kind of back ground or situation.
Thank you so much, and God Bless.
