I'm thatgirl, 47 yo baptist from texas. Have been a baptist since childhood and saved at the age of 13. I have been away from my lord the last few years. I went through a horrible divorce 3 years ago. My ex husband had become a drug addict and after years of battling with trying to get him away from that lifestyle he finally left us and we haven't heard from him since. I have 3 children, am lucky enough to have a good career and I am trying to raise my kids the best way I know. I never lost my faith but I ceased going to church, but recently I have heard his call, finally answered and now I am trying to get my spirituality back. I met a man 2 years ago, he was recently divorced, a previous Pentecostal minister who had made some bad decisions in his life and had left the church and lost his marriage. Like me, he never stopped believing in god he just wasn't going to church. We fell in love and up to a couple of months ago we were talking marriage. After the first of the year he returned to his church and that is a wonderful thing. Seeing him so different gave me the faith to seek the church again. My issue is how our relationship is now. I feel entirely excluded from his spirituality. He hasn't invited us to his church we just aren't included it seems. He says he is working on some issues that he needs to fix. And marriage seems off the table at this time and I am not sure when that point will come. I am uncomfortable staying in a long term relationship without plans for marriage, to me that is not setting a good example for my children.I feel like we should do this together, as a committed couple. But he seems to only want to see me on the weekend, totally avoid me wens and Sundays and I'm not handling it very well. Am I wrong to want to be a part if this life changing transition? I feel so lost. Thank you for reading.
