I am currently going through RCIA as my boyfriend and I plan to get married in the near future(I hope it’s near). I have also been raised in a catholic family just haven’t received all the sacraments so I do know what I am getting into and have been wanting to do this for years.
Our problem is, we have been dating for a year and a half and the physical tension is becoming very hard to bear, especially for him. We had some slip ups in the past but since I am going through this process and will be confirmed at Easter Vigil I’m taking my faith much more seriously. I’m not really having a problem abstaining from physical relations, but my boyfriend is really having a hard time holding back.
Another issue is, we’re waiting to get married until we can support ourselves, and the job market where we are is slim to none. I have a job, but without a second income we wouldn’t be able to support ourselves.
I’m basically looking for any suggestions, how can I inspire him to return to his faith wholeheartedly, and if we have to wait perhaps another year or so to get married, what are some suggestions to staying chaste?
Thanks in advance:gopray2:
