Regarding Catholics dating fallen away Catholics: where is it suggested that we look for a lifelong partner in a strip club? Essentially, it really comes down to doing that when we think about it.
My Dad did not attend church. He was not a lazy person who stayed in bed sleeping. He was up early and dressed with no where to go. I remember clearly he would tune the radio on to Polish polka music. When asked why he didn't attend, he would reply "The church is full of hypocrites", "The priest is a man (sinner) just like me -- what does he know that I don't already know?" on and on. They were all excuses. We'll never know the real reason. Out of all the kids, and we were many, only 2 (my younger brother and I) attend Mass weekly despite all my mothers' effort. Don't sell yourself short; you have plenty of time. Keep searching for Mr. Catholic Right.
PS: I have an affinity for Polish music and belong to a Polish parish. I wonder why?
