I posted about this a while ago, but I was not sure it was in the correct forum, and so I thought I’d re-post about it, as well as give a bit of an update.
About five months ago, I befriended a guy from India. Mind you, he lives in India, so our contact has been limited to countless hours of talking/IMing/Skyping. Initially, I do not think either of us considered anything other than a platonic relationship; however, things changed drastically. I could see it leading in this direction, and he eventually revealed to me that he loves me. Thing is, I think I am feeling the same way; he is everything I could ever hope for in a guy. ONLY problem? He’s Hindu.
His family is extremely tolerant of the Catholic faith, and they would not have a problem with him marrying a Catholic girl and raising his children in the Church. Lately, he’s even been asking me to educate him on Catholicism, and so I have been doing that to the best of my ability. The plan is that we will meet in person in about a year.
Could a relationship work under these circumstances? What is the Church’s stance on something like this? I do not want to do anything wrong, nor would I ever even consider leaving my faith for any man. I am just curious as to whether this could potentially work.
Thank you for your time. Please keep me in your prayers…I truly do not know what to do.
