Hi, guys —
I am a newly divorced individual that was married into a civil union; it was not in the Church.
I have been separated for a year and a half prior to the legal proceedings (about a year ago).
- I was raised Catholic
- was forced to be a Baptist Christian by my step mom who was a Baptist pastor, and
- then lost my way from God for years after I moved out of my step mom's house.
I have been going to church and going back to my roots as a Catholic for a year now and I have some concerns about what is right or wrong with my potential relationship.
I fell in love with my best friend who is a devoted Catholic and she is in love with me too. We have wanted to take our relationship from being friends to being a couple but I don't know if it's right in the eyes of God.
Considering that I went through a divorce and such, I don't want to have her do anything that would disrupt her relationship with God or corrupt her faith.
Any advice on my situation would be appreciated.
