I went to confession yesterday to confess that my boyfriend and I broke our promise of abstinence.
Myself, my two sons from a previous marriage, my boyfriend, and his daughter from a previous marriage have moved into a single home. The kids are happier together and we are now planning on getting separate beds. We decided to move in because I had just lost my job and I have no other family to turn to for help. Financially we can not separate from where we just moved into.
After confession I have felt so depressed since the Father I received confession from was quite upset that we are living together. I keep thinking that maybe I made a huge mistake and I should end the relationship. Confessing made me feel so guilty. Maybe I am being too hard on myself?
We want to marry in the Catholic Church. My previous marriage has been annulled and we are waiting for his to be cleared. There has been no official proposal and after receiving confession I feel more confused then ever.
My question is: Am I wrong to be feeling this way? Should I try another Church?
