  • How does one counter communication barrier?

  • Can you give us a little more to go on? What sort of barrier?

  • We are of different faiths and this is my first marriage. 10 years ago I welcomed my wife and her two kids into my life. She asked questions of me during our dating that I didn't have answers to and her protestant church seemed so friendly and vibrant. It was understood that I was to be a father figure, head of the household and I would attend their church. Within a two year period, I missed my Catholic Church and went back. Within 5 years, we were separated but reconnected after 10 months of not living together. The marriage has been faithful, no alcohol and no physical abuse. This year we are getting a divorce mainly due to her narcissistic, controlling, manipulative behavior that makes my living conditions unbearable and the mental abuse intolerable. And the fact that she cannot respect the Catholic faith. I have tried for years to pray for her to receive grace. We've been to multiple counselors over the years. Please be sure be wise in your choice for a spouse. And what helped me make my decision was during a homily about 6 months ago when Father spoke of about divorce. He said when someone is keeping you from God, it is understood that you have major relationship issues. Thanks, I just needed to vent as I have told nobody about this. Your board is a safe haven. I ask for your prayers as I move forward. And I am aware of Satan's input with depression and despair. They are signs that he is there and I continue to avoid them.

  • I pray that you find peace in the faith! My prayers go to you for healing!

  • Praying for you, jh. May you find some solace in this season of the Lord.

  • jh, My prayers are with you. My husband and I have been separated for over 2 months and I believe there is definitely a possession issue at play. The great deceiver is SO evil. I will pray for you, for your spouse and her children. In the meantime please google "Divorced Catholics". There is a great website that has helped me so much in dealing with all of my conflicting emotions and guilt over what is happening. God bless you!

  • Why are you sooo rigid? Usually rigid people in the faith have it my way or the bleeping highway. There's no real effort to help them understand.

    Posted on Dec 21st, 2012 at 9:38 AM by Questioning jh about his rigidness.

  • jh, so sorry for your situation. And sorry for Jeanne piling on here; please don't think the comments of one troll represent the rest of us who are compassionate about what you're going through.

  • Rigid???? Yes, rigid. Definition: unwillingness to bend to God's true Will. We think it is our way or the bleeping highway. Of course, my highway ends at the beach where we will be spending the first New Year's weekend AFTER THE HOLIDAYS AND BEFORE Disney when it is cheaper for Florida residents. How cheap? 180 for three days with a Florida DL. Our New Year's Rez don't take yourselves sooooo soo seriously.

  • I am not a troll. I am a real person. I do give a hoot about most of you. I actually pray for you. To write that is cruel. If I were to meet you at my parish Christ the king in Tampa, I would take and YOUR FAM OUT FOR bagels on Sunday after church here. Then, Sunday Beach. I would .... ask our pastor and staff here on the west coast of Florida. Calling people trolls is clueless up north behavior. It is rigid and sad. I really do live here and I am not mean like you. I have never called anyone a troll. Maybe I have called them a large blimpy thundera because I have this awful pic in my head of you all eating nothing but bread during all your winter storms that make you so fat and mean, but not a troll. Solution: don't eat so much that you have to shop at Lane Bryant. I wouldn't be caught dead in that store. I would eat healthy and care how I looked. Drink water not soda. Eat real veggies not starch. See? I care. I am not a troll. WEight Watchers is free to join this year. I am goin on it. I wear a 14-12 and not an 18. I am 5"6 &3/4 inches. I wear a 10/9 shoe and almost never wear socks and sneakers. I am a real person. I am not mean. Are you?

  • will not have another day, minute by minute will not go back, so be sure to cherish every minute. There is a pursuit, obviously disappointed, but would not go back. There is an effort, obviously fail, but do not want to stop. There is a love, obviously wrong, but would not let go; there is a beautiful, obviously fantasy, but do not want to wake upLife is sometimes not with right and wrong measured; life is not a coin that is not being anti-; life is not go, either black or white. Life, so many things in life, this is a lot of love, there is no reason, and without reason, love is love, love is love, there is no result, and without result, willingly, no regrets. Life is not really perfect, not only is the most perfect real beauty; life is not always successful, is the real success only stood up in frustration, only the flash of life is both eternal life. Do not pessimistic that he is very unfortunate, even more attitude towards life, happiness is their own thing, as long as like, you can always replace their remote controls, to adjust the window to the soul happy channel. Learn to be happy, even sad, but also smiling face. Institute of loneliness, not who will treat you as guarding treasure. Learn to be independent, can no longer blindly trouble others, their own thing their own. Institute of unsympathetic, the roll to roll, stay on the left. Learn to grow up, you can not be so capricious. Learn to forget, can not live in the past time. The mood is an emotional state, it has a good mood, it has self-confidence, and then have a young and healthy. To have a future life of longing, full of expectations, so we have a good mood, because the life is luck and happiness. Give yourself a good mood, let the world smile at you; to others a good mood, make us smile for life, good mood is the wealth of life, let us always accompanied by a good mood. People on such a life, fun is the day, is not happy day, so you must make yourself happy. People on such a life, not something wrong again, another broken heart is difficult to heal, so you will not regret it. People on such a life, after today unfortunate than you actually are still many people; not optimistic that he is very great, in fact, you just drop in the ocean. Learn to adapt, make your environment becomes bright; learn to adjust, so that you no longer feel sad; learn to be tolerant and let your life without trouble; learn dedication, make your life full of sunshine. In fact, the skies are blue, clouds the total to be scattered; in fact, the sea is not wide, the other side even to this shore; in fact, tears are sweet, when your heart to do so. With emotion to see the world is a tragedy, a comedy is a rational look. Sometimes not understand, just do not want to understand, and sometimes do not know or just do not want to say it. Sometimes he does see, but understand not do anything, so he remained silent. Some words, for keeping everything just some pain, only for silent forget some memories, only suitable for occasional out aftertaste. All the days will come, all the days, and will be the last, as if everything happened, and as if everything did not happen.Has been called back for a century,
