I am not very familiar with Catholic teachings. I know many catholics who support/have nothing against those in same sex relationships, but I’ve also talked to others who declare the opposite.
What is the official catholic teaching on a situation such as the following?
-Two men (or women, if you want) have been together for twenty-five years. They have raised two children, put them/are putting them through college. They have been faithful and monogamous to one another for all twenty-five years.
Now, in that scenario, what exactly is the catholic approach to it? Are these men sinning? Should they separate? Or are they alright?
I understand this might be a touchy subject for many, and i’m certainly not trying to stir up anything, but I never get a definitive answer on this. I have my own opinions on this, but alas, I am not a practicing catholic (I’m currently trying to decide what religion would work best for me, if any).
