This may seem like a silly question to you but it really has been bothering me for while now. My problem is, I have really fallen for this guy I have been dating. He’s just my type. My only problem, he’s Mormon and I’m Catholic.From what he has told me he’s “not that religious anymore” and I don’t consider myself a strict Catholic but I am worried that he might have a problem with me being a Catholic. He doesn’t know that I am Catholic, yet. We have only gone out a couple of times times. He knows I went to Catholic school and when I told him that, he acted like my parents had sent me away to a prison-style boarding school! My school was like any other school except we had uniforms and we incorporated religion into our classes, activities, etc.
His response kind of shocked me and since then, I have been worried that he might not like the fact that I’m Catholic. I don’t know much about Mormonism but what I’m asking here is, do you think because he’s a Mormon that he’ll have a problem with me being Catholic? Is that religion strict to where they can’t date certain religions or do they look down on different religions? I don’t think he’d quit dating me because I’m Catholic but if things went as far as me meeting his Mormon family, would I be in for a bunch of people disapproving of me because of my religion?
Personally, I think it’s terrible to look down on someone because of their religion. I have lots of friends who aren’t Catholic and some who don’t believe in God. Do I share their beliefs? No, but that doesn’t stop me from being friends with them. I just wish everyone could treat eachother that way. I’d appreciate anyone’s help or comments on this matter.
