My girlfriend and I of 5 and a half years recently broke up 2 weeks ago, it was her doing. We broke up because I was raised as a Catholic and she is an Greek Orthodox, my family was religious while her family not 1 bit, their religion was more a cultural idenity than anything else. It came to that she wanted the children to be baptised Orthodox because if they were raised as Catholic they will grow up to resent her for being Orthodox, I explained to her she was being stupid, but she firmly believed what she was doing was the best thing and left, no more contact she has changed her number and refuses to answer any communications I have sent her. I am not welcomed over at her house or anything, because her mother is very controlling she is 26 years old and makes her think like this, I know it is the mother.
Last Good Friday I decided to go to the greek orthodox, and the mother was shocked that i was praying while every1 else was talking, she told my ex-gf that you got to watch out for that boy, he is too religious. This woman is an old-school Greek off the boat but left her religious values in the old country, where she chose marriage over family when she was 18 and left the country. This mother allows her son to let his gf to live under their roof as well.
I am just very confused, all my friends tell me to give her up and let her be, it is her loss, i agree but I can’t throw 5 years out the window and just move on. I have been praying and saying the rosary every day, I can’t watch tv or play games anymore because it doesn’t bring me any happiness, I haven’t slept in weeks, my immune system got real low and I got sick and the worse thing I am encountering is a broken heart with the flu.
Throughout the whole relationship I made it clear the children would be Catholic but I would never try to convert her, I told her to go to her church and learn her faith, she doesn’t know anything about it, I have tried teaching her but she doesn’t follow through, her family hasn’t taught her anything about it.
I even compromised with her, saying I just want the kids be Catholic and u can teach them Greek, but she refused and ran away sent me a text that it was over and it was too late.
I just need help, I need advice, I need your prayers, I do want her back but I think it is too late, I have been praying and praying. I just don’t know how some1 can just breakup with a person via a text message and cut all communication like that, especially over 5 years. I need help
