I am a non-Catholic. I’m with a man who says he’s a Catholic. I’ve asked him to explain what it’s all about. He is Roman Catholic. But he will not explain it. What does it mean to be a Catholic? Is it some rules?


#3

I do not know much about what it means to be Catholic


#5

I dont know.


#6

I am confused. In the first thread I believe you are talking about your girlfriend. In this thread you speak of a man you are seeing


#7

I’m talking about my boyfriend in both subjects


#8

I’m talking about my boyfriend in both. I am not good in english.


#9

Does this mean you are not married and are initimate


#10

We are not married. But we are intimate.


#11

Has your boyfriend told you Catholics do not engage in intimate activity when not married.


#12

Thank you for answer.


#13

He has not told me that Catholics do not have sex without being married. He almost never wants sex. He says he is a Catholic but he does not want to tell what it means. We have had sex, but only once a month. He is very absent.


#14

May I ask what countries you are in


#15

I am from Sweden.


#16

And of him?


#17

He is from Poland.


#18

In Sweden it is quite normal to have sex outside of marriage. But I would accept it if my boyfriend would wait for marriage.

Thankyou.
A practising Catholic is one who attends Mass every Sunday, make use of confession, and tries to live according to the example Jesus set for us.

Sex before marriage is not a value Catholics have. The value is to wait for marriage.
As far as kissing on the cheek in greeting, that is, or can be, a European way of greeting.

Is he a practising Catholic? Were either of you married before and now divorced.

This is a very good website given by the Bishops of the US, it has a section for people who are dating or engaged:
