Christian dating other religions
You would be such a powerful Christian woman..." (him, being sincere) "You'll never convert me! " (me, in near tears) "Jesus's love for me is real." (him, unwavering) "I wish you would read Hitchens! All of us." (him, unwavering) "You love him more than me." (me, in tears) "I do.I can't help it." (him, pious)I do feel, in general, we are -- and are entitled to be -- harsher on our partner's views than with someone who isn't going to raise children with us, i.e. My boyfriend says I have a visceral reaction to anything Christian, but it's because deep down, I know he wants to proselytize me.He is communicative and sensitive (ladies, isn't this what we want? He would be a loving, patient father and says he will work hard for the rest of his life so that I can live like a princess.Some days, when we ignore the elephant in the room, I think, wow, this is it.
When I was in high school -- a moderate episcopalian school which I ended up in by chance -- I skipped the weekly chapel most Wednesdays without paying penance.I like to believe there's something out there, some mysterious universal power, but it's not anything I try to define or pretend to understand.In fact, I embrace the enigma of it all and, as my best friend -- a self-described Buddhist -- likes to say, "all we know is that we just don't know." Can't we just embrace the mystery of life, simply be good and hope for the best? My Christian boyfriend jokingly calls me an imp -- and I call him a fruitcake.I know that's not very nice, but it's my way of venting my frustration.He thinks marriage is the union between a man and a woman and God and I think it's an archaic institution that conveniently provides a legal framework should the unfortunate circumstances of divorce occur and there's children and teakwood furniture to fight over.
