Post subject:  I'm here to understand more

Hi. I don't know who or what to believe any more. My parents (both deceased) were Catholics but I never really believed or practiced of my own free choice. I gave up going to mass when I moved away from home (to go to college) when I was 18. I remember when I was at work, when I was aged 23, a non-Catholic friend asked me why did I stop practicing my Catholic religion, and I replied "Because I wanted to sin"! I think what was on my mind all those years ago was that I wanted to have a sexual relationship without having to go to all the bother of getting married first. But thinking back now, I don't think that was a very good answer to my friend's question. I want to examine Catholicism more intelligently now, and seek the truth, more open mindedly.

Welcome, Denise.

For sex relationships, it is still important to get married first and then to set up a family, raising and teaching children.

In my teens and 20s, getting married was not a realistic possibility for me, it was virtually a practical impossibility at the time.

Welcome to the board.

Catholicism 101 is the best place to ask general questions about the faith.
