I am in a difficult situation. I am a new Catholic after finding my way to God through my pure, giving heart that just wanted to good if there was meaning in anything. I wanted to make a woman happy but love was meaning less without God and I found my way to the proofs of Catholicism - the only belief system with evidence to support it. So I follow it to the letter because God gave me free life so whatever way He says live by I accept gracefully. The problem is myself being in relationships with women… At this moment in time my girlfriend is trying to get me to ignore Catholic rules.
I have a girlfriend of 9 months and she is based in America whilst I am based in the UK. I am going to see her in June so that’d be 12 months together. We both love each other a lot but we both have different stances regarding intimacy when we meet. She said that romance cannot flurry if they are bounded by rules. She says that when I go over there we can do anything apart from my penis her her vagina. Now that is not what we are supposed to do according to the bible before marriage. She seems to say that it’s OK because we are young. She says that I need to get out more and that shewills only being intimate with me because we are together and it is the only way that romance can flurry.
So what do I do? I just want to be a good man for God and I can do anything with my life. Life is free for me so I will do anything that I have to - I don’t mind being single my whole life if I cannot find a woman who respects His laws before marriage. She respects God’s intercourse laws but I dunno. It does say in the bible that anyone who is with a woman in a sexual way must marry, but we won’t have actual intercourse so to speak.
Any ideas? I will post our messages below:
