I don't want to start a whole big moral debate here (I'm fully aware of the Church's teachings) however if you allow us who are divorced and not yet free to marry in the Catholic Church to join this site, why then won't you allow us to be matched? Whether you match us or we find a match on our own through this very site, what's the difference? Maybe I'm being naive abut I look forward to your answer. Thank you!
Peggy, this may not be exactly what you are looking for in way of an answer but I wanted to share something that a lot of our newer members may not be aware of. When CatholicMatch first started it was not named as such (it was straphaels.net). The original site was designed to be more than a dating site. CatholicMatch retains the original vision of that site; it can also be a community for many people. It is a "place" where we "grow in faith, fall in love." It makes sense that people who are not looking to immediately fall in love would join this site in addition to those who are. Truthfully, I think there is something odd about the approach of coming to a site with such a singular focus. It seems artificial. Whereas, when learning, praying, growing, building friendships, dating, courting and falling in love seem like a more wholistic approach to the experience of life as a Catholic. But that's just me.
Anyway, I just wanted to shed some light on one of the reasons why this site is available for those who aren't immediately able to get married in the Church. One may not be free to date (and this is where the site owners are being obedient to Holy Mother Church), but that doesn't mean one is shut out from the community that is here.
