First of all, this is my first post here, so sorry if I get the format/forum wrong.
I’m attracted to people interested in/living in a predominantly non-Catholic culture! Help! How am I ever going to find a spouse?
**Detailed Version: **
I’m a college student majoring in a foreign language and International Studies. For almost a year now, I’ve been studying abroad in the foreign country where the language is spoken. I feel very connected to and passionate about the culture (and have been for years now) so I know my interest isn’t just a phase.
I’m realizing that, if I want to have a relationship with someone who shares my interests and enthusiasms, that person will likely be found in this foreign country or be an expat or child of immigrants living in my own country. I know that married couples also have very different interests, but I really like to debate and discuss things, and bounce ideas off people whose opinions I value as well as listen to their opinions. Unfortunately, the country I’m interested in has a Catholic Church in ruins and is very immoral… am I searching for the impossible?
(I made some of the details vague to keep things neutral and prevent people being influenced by any prejudices, conscious or otherwise… but the matter of my situation is all here.)
