(Quote) Kathy-355103 said: I say there has to be physical attraction. Otherwise---why marry? If it's just a great friendship----I'd rather stay single and live alone, and enjoy the friendships (already doing that.) I don't need to be married to anyone just to be married---I am doing fine as a single person and having my own space and freedom. I don't need a roommate.

Marriage has to be to someone I love and am physically attracted to--and vice versa. Physical attraction is only PART of the equation though. There has to be a whole lot more than that---BUT it IS part of it... I don't understand people talking about just meeting a good man and marrying him.... Yeah---I would want a good man I am attracted to. A good man I am NOT attracted to would be a good friend.. (not a husband.)...

Priests have relationships with Sisters who help care for the home they live in, and are just companions without a physical attraction.
Could we as Catholic women be called for this type of marriage?


No.. WE are not called to have this type of marriage.. The Church says we may not contract a marriage that cannot be fulfilled in physical intimacy.. There have been cases where couples have been denied a wedding in the Church because physical limitations prevented a completion of intercourse.. What you are describing is NOT marriage.. It is a caregiver position..

I believe in Mercy. Not mercy dating.

Physical attraction is very important to me. If many didn't believe this there wouldn't be so many on-line threads and various articles and programs off site promoting various preferences. Deep down many persons wish to be both inspired and desired in the physical sense.
Persons are often made to feel shallow. Or, if older...foolish, if they desire physical attraction. Disturbing.

There is a huge difference in making someone feel empowered in terms of how they look and objectifying.

Thank you, for bringing this topic up in this forum particularly, Sheila.

I may be an older woman...but I know what I like and I'm not afraid to say it.

As a young man my mother told me about someone who was not very attractive. She said "you know when you first meet the person they do not appear attractive but once you get to know their personality they become attractive".
Beauty is only skin deep, true beauty is what is within.
I can tell you from experience, if you choose only by what you see there can be a life time of pain to go with it.
Marriage is not about looks it is about relationship and a great relationship will trump beauty everytime.

Moms usually know a lot and have their children's best interest at heart...

Yes, Tony, it's ALL about the relationship---and one built centered on God's love. theheart rose

Attraction doesn't have to be about perfection in looks though... A lot of unknown things can contribute to attraction... (I'm not saying only movie star looks are attracting..)
