"There's something wrong with Catholic women. If you go on any secular site, it is easy to get a date. Women actually respond. And you can have a very pleasant evening."
Hi Tony. I'm sorry to hear you are of the above opinion. I think you are being judgemental and unfair. To compare a good Catholic woman who is serious about her Faith and who is looking for a lifelong spouse to a secular woman whose faith could mean nothing or little to her is doubtless hurtful and unjust. What such 2 women are in my opinion looking for could easily be very far apart. Doesn't have to be, but could easily be. The former will not wish to waste your time, and money, getting a free meal out of you, while the other might be of a different opinion, and have no qualms about feasting on your account.
If something is worth having, and quality always is, than it is worth fighting and patiently waiting for, and for quality that is what one usually has to do, and be. Anything else comes easy for it is plentiful, and often readily available, for various ends. If you decide to compromise, than you will make a grave error. To accept a woman who is Protestant or worse still, atheist, just because you lack patience in waiting for God to send you the woman He wants for you, but for whom you might need to wait some time for, is most unwise, uncatholic, insulting to God, and guarantees failure, for if God will not bless that union, and He won't, what can you expect from it?!
There are various saints you can pray to for their intercession for a good wife, saint Agnes, saint Anthony, saint Raphael for instance. Give them a chance, they'd love to help. We as Catholics have an entire heaven above at our disposal for whatever we may be in need of, why not than use what is so readily offered?
God bless you Tony with a wife of your dreams. NO NO!!! An even better one!!!
Joe, you make some valid points, but it is totally absurd to say God will not bless a union between a Catholic and a Protestant. Besides, I have met many Protestant women who have more in common with Catholic morals and faith than many other Catholic women that I know.
