I'll tell you this... I'm simply on fire for our Catholic faith, after coming from nearly 40 years on the Protestant side. So much beauty, so many faithful people. This is unlike anything I ever experienced in any Protestant denomination.
That said... I do like ladies who have been Catholic for awhile. Maybe this is because I'm still rather new, but I do appreciate the special little things Catholic lady friends (and a few of the guys I know) share with me. Sign of the cross on my forehead before a long trip, special prayers, etc. The sense of community is like none I've ever experienced, and there's so much good stuff here for building a family on the right ground.
Of course... winning some Protestant souls could be fun... ;-) (I'm working on my half sis and her Baptist minister husband...)
I encourage you to hold onto your Faith, because your Faith is why you are Catholic. Your Faith will get you through everything. Your inclinations to leave are human, but that is why Christ chose you. He wants you to be divine and with His help you can rise above these tribulations, including all the human error throughout our Church, and get closer to Him. Let Him lead the Way and you will be pleasantly surprised - and further in love with Him - and further in love with the woman who becomes your wife.
God Bless You,
