Thanks for everyones advice, I really appreciate it. God Bless you all. I will try to answer everyones questions individually. To make it more clear we go back to my parents house for summer and winter.
Make every effort for one of you to rent an apartment, rent a room, find a job that gives you living quarters.
We thought about him getting an apartment but arnt leases for years or atleast 6 months at a time? We will only be home for 3 months and then we go back to school where we have seperate dorms. Also another thing is he gets no financial help for school from his family so every penny he makes over the summer goes towards the school year.
When are you coming into the church?
This Easter, I can’t wait. Thanks for asking!
Perhaps you could do some house switching with a friend (or other family) or two.
This is a great idea and probably what we will end up having to do because I dont think we will be able to get an apartment for only 3 months. We work different hours, he will work at night and me during the day so we will be sleeping at different times. There will only be two nights out of the week that we will be in the house together at night so maybe for those two nights he can go sleep at his Brothers. What does everyone think about that idea?
Forgive me for asking… But to where are you going that you get such an arrangement of available rooms? Are you living with your family and they are providing a free room for your fiance?
It is a fair question. He was kicked out of his fathers the summer after our senior year in HS because he accepted a football scholarship to a school his father did not want him to go to (out of state). So at the time we werent religious or anything and we were going off to school in the fall anyways so he slept at my house until school started. He isnt allowed back now because he is becoming Catholic. His dad said he would move him back in if he would renounce his faith and stop going to a Catholic Church. We never thought about it until we found the wonderful blessing that is the Catholic Church, and now are trying hard to correct our wrongs, and there are a lot of them.
About confession, my RCIA class indicated that we were to confess before we recieve communion. I dont understand, how are we supposed to be in a state of grace and out of mortal sin if we cant confess before we take our first communion and officially become part of the Church? Maybe I didnt understand it right when it was explained. We had out rite of election and the sacrament was explained to us and we were invited to take part when we were ready. By the way I was baptised Catholic, I just never had my first communion.
So correct me if I am wrong but from my understanding from everyones replies is that it is not a sin to live in seperate rooms in the same house, we are to just aviod temptation. So if we don’t give into our temptation we will be ok? Am I understanding this correctly?
Thanks again everyone
