Ok, I’m starting to think that Catholic Answers Forum needs a special sub-forum for singles.
That being said, I want to marry and have children, but whenever I pray for a husband and children, I feel very guilty.
1 It doesn’t seem very holy to ask God to give you a husband and children.
2 I worry that maybe God doesn’t want me to marry, so I’ll be wasting my time. Or wose, he’ll answer my prayers and I’ll be miserable, since I wasn’t meant to marry.
3 I’m worried that I’ll be a terrible wife and mother, and just make everyone else miserable.
4 To be perfectly honest, a part of me still doesn’t believe that God loves me or wants me to be happy.
I still pray anyway. I also pray for my future husband, and that God will give me the grace to be a good wife and mother. But I still feel guilty.
