According to many people, I’m not that old enough to worry about this (28) but for some time I have been feeling as if I am having a mental nervous breakdown because of my age.
The raising of children is an integral part of the equation when considering marrying someone of the same faith (in this case, Catholic).
What if you’re extremely worried that you might pass an age in which you feel like your fertility is declining and declining, and you truly feel that you are not the adopting type for many reasons (although I entirely respect anyone’s choice to adopt), but you also feel that you are called to the vocation of marriage? What logical reasons are left for marrying someone of the same faith if children is no longer an issue anymore? Is anyone even going to want to marry someone whose fertility is declining so fast?
Sorry for this depressing post, I am depressed about all of this. Time is going by so fast. I’m tempted to try a website like Ave Maria but there are obstacles right now (family-wise) to me being a practicing Catholic and it would be unfair for me to join under such conditions right now. (However I’m trying to figure out how to overcome the obstacles)
