I do not at all feel forced to be celibate. Infact, I consider it a gift. Challenges to that from within or without I offer up to God. Now that I have found this board and websites like this in general I feel I have a places to go to for help. Confession and when I find one, a spiritual director help too.
I do feel called to the religious life, but my age (36 doesn’t seem that old to me, but many orders have “age limits” of 40 or LESS ) and other complications could get in the way. Still, even if I stay secular or join a 3rd order (secular order), I know God will show me the right path for me. I hope you find the right path for you be it single or married. I do pray for you :gopray:
