  1. Okay, the scenario....A new relationship, a couple in their early 40's ( a very CUTE couple too...) Very smitten with each other....in the early stages of considering marriage. I believe in hashing out everything before that step is taken..so I brought up his religiousity and my non-religiosity...namely...he is a christian and I am basically a spiritual person who believes in god, the great spirit in general..I have an open mind and will listen and learn from every religion. I do not believe that there is a chosen people who will only go to heaven. I think if you are a good person and affect t
  2. I am dating a guy from 7 years and he is working in a private firm but wants to switch to government one but fails every time so he consulted with his relative priest and his relative priest have told him his luck is not good. My boyfriend has changed completely. Yesterday I gave him a gift but he refused saying that the priest has told him not to accept anything from strangers. Now after listening this I am bit sad thinking that am I stranger to my boyfriend who has dedicated her 6 years to him or am I over reacting. Whether my boyfriend is right and I am not understanding his perspective or
  3. So, our judo instructor is also a Christian pastor. He has an assistant in her 20s, and she is very sweet. I have known his wife for many years, and have had their children over to play with my kids. I have come to realize that every where our judo instructor goes, his twentysomething assistant goes with him. My husband and I have seen them together at many many places and it has been extremely frequent. We have seen them going to a movie, eating out together, going to CrossFit together, seeing them drive away together from Starbucks many times, going to the grocery store together, and vario
  4. Hello everyone, My boyfriend and I have been together for almost 3 months now. I'm 20 y/o and he's 24 y/o. I am a virgin, he is not. We do not have sexual intercourse, but we do "heavy petting." I come from a family with a Buddhist background, while he was raised to be a Christian. His parents are SUPER devout (mainly his mom and brother), and although he is a strong believer in Christianity, he does not reference God as often as his family does. We've had talks about marriage, because we really do see a future together - but he often fears that our difference in religion could possibly bec
  5. I had a pretty huge falling out with this girl--she was the pastor's daughter. the thing is, I'm not really sure what to think. We had been friends for 5 years or so and never had any issues that I was aware of. Then one day randomly she ignored me and her brother approached me and said I was barely tolerable. I should mention there were more events after this but I'm having a very hard time piecing together everything that happened, but will discuss what I do know. So, for those who don't know, the phrase "barely tolerable" I knew to be a direct reference to one of her favorite books, Pride
  6. This is pure torture. There's so much to this story that it might be hard to keep track with. I was friends with the pastor's daughter--and I stress friends--we never did anything that suggested otherwise---literally all we did is talk online and at church. Admittedly, looking back, it did seem a bit one-sided after a while. Perhaps I was annoying or something. We were friends for roughly 5 years...but one nuance here--she happens to be the daughter of a pastor. I never had any altercations with any church member. But after 5 years, in what felt out of the blue to me, she and he sister
  7. We were together for four years, he's 23. After sensing for several weeks earlier this summer that he was emotionally distancing himself from me in subtle but unmistakable ways, I looked at his phone and there it all was. Turns out the priest is 55 (a 32 year age difference), and not only that but a practicing Catholic priest from another city. They met about five months ago on an internet hookup site, and have since seen each other at least 6 times. A couple of weeks ago I confronted the bf and he finally told the truth. Lots of discussion, from which it became apparent that he was infatu
  8. So, guys, I'm more venting than anything else in this post, but I do welcome advice. My boyfriend's family is making me crazy. They're from a extreme Christian cult and I'm everything they dislike: bisexual, marijuana smoker, with many tattoos and pink hair. Of course, I haven't told them any of this (except for the hair and tattoos, because one cannot hide those). Said bf is not Christian, neither is he prejudiced like his family, but he keeps quiet completely quiet about his (lack of) faith to his parents and barely speaks out about his world views. He even goes to church to make the
