What are the chances that a Catholic convert may find a spouse?
Which would be easier - conversion to Catholicism by one’s own free will without any thought about marriage or finding a mate, or conversion to Catholicism by marriage? The former is about converting to Catholicism because you genuinely agree with the doctrines, while the latter is about converting to Catholicism because your future spouse is Catholic.
I feel the latter may be easier than the former, if a person emphasizes family life as being more important than faith. The former may be easier than the latter, if a person is single and wishes to remain single, celibate, and chaste forever. Or maybe, the person has to try to find a spouse who is a faithful, *practicing *Catholic too?
