Love & Responsibility Talk in NYC

NYC courtyardWe gave a talk in New York City earlier this summer for young adults.  The topic was “Love & Responsibility,” with a focus on dating and all those questions we love/hate to ask.  It was a lot of fun.  The talk was filmed and was recently posted, along with the brief Q&A we did at the end of the night.  Feel free to watch!

    Hi Jackie and Bobby,
    I was present at your NYC talk and I want to thank you for taking the time out to offer some advice,inspiration and hope to many Catholics. It is truly appreciated. I didn’t get the chance to ask my question that night so here i am asking now :) I have a loving, wonderful boyfriend who supports me in all I do, especially my faith, BUT he is not a practicing Catholic. He grew up in the Catholic church and knows the teachings, etc, but as an adult does not follow the teachings.
    I guess I just wanted to some advice on dating someone who is of different faith or practice than you are. To be honest I spoke to some people of this, many were supportive but some were very quick to say it won’t work. I admired your relationship, not only with each other but with God, therefore I ask for some guidance or words of advice. Thank you and God bless.

      Hey Lucia,
      The number one factor we’d say here in “receptivity.” How receptive is your boyfriend to the teachings of the Church? Is he willing to admit what he doesn’t understand and seek the truth, or is he obstinate about not seeking answers? Does he really know and understand, but just doesn’t care? (that would be quite the hurdle to overcome). Does he desire to raise a Catholic family, or could he care less? These are some potential “red flag” indicators.

      A friend of ours was dating a non-Catholic, but she was super-receptive to learning about the Church and the “why” behind so many of the teachings. Long story short, she went through RCIA (by her own choice) and they were married the following summer. So it can work…or it could be a serious struggle. Definitely pray for him…the decision to follow Christ is one only he can make. And as always, don’t settle. Will keep you in prayer!
