I’m having a bit of a spiritual dilemma. There’s a girl who I know, and I’m not really sure if I SHOULD ask her out, let alone LIKE her.
To make a long story short, when I look for a girl, I think of many long-term things. Namely:
- Is she practical? (in terms of money, etc.)
- Will she be a strong mother? (Namely, what can she do for the physical and spiritual health of the children)
- Where does her faith lie? (i.e. denominational. Somewhat tied with #2)
- Where does her TRUE faith lie? (i.e. her spirituality)
And so on and so forth. Not to say that I’d leave all the child-rearing up to her. If anything, I want to help them become REALLY close to God and live happy lives. However, I wouldn’t want to have a family divided. I’m lucky enough to be where I am today. NEITHER of my parents are Catholic. ONE of them was a rambunctious college boy. Yet here I am: Mr. Studious and Spiritual (and health-oriented).
So back to the girl. She SEEMS nice, and we do get along pretty well. There’s one TEENSY problem, though. She’s an atheist (or at least, the concept fascinates her). I’m not sure where her morals lie, and we haven’t really delved into the matter. I’m waiting to see which action is best, but the answer doesn’t seem obvious. Advice?
Of course, it seems like I’m making too many judgments too soon. Heck, I don’t even know if she’s single! Consider this a question for future reference.
P.S. Before you answer, think of the kids.
P.P.S. If my post isn’t too clear, let me know, and I’ll edit it.
