Relationships evolve over time, and sometimes unexpected changes can present unique challenges. In this Reddit post, a woman shares the experience of her partner’s sudden and intense religious transformation.
They Have Been Together for Three Years
Sarah, aged 24, and her boyfriend, aged 27, have been together for almost three years.
She Got a New Job
Early in the year, the couple moved to a new state together, and Sarah started a new career at a university.
She Proposed Going to Church
A month into her new job, Sarah proposed that they try attending church there since the university where she worked is catholic.
His Subtle Agreement
Her partner subtly agreed to the idea, and she thinks this is where the idea was first planted in his head.
They Weren’t Religious
Sarah was raised Catholic, but she stopped attending church at the age of eight. Her boyfriend also had a similar upbringing, but his family stopped attending church too.
She Let It Slide
When Sarah suggested they could attend church on his first free weekend, he didn’t seem enthusiastic or motivated to go.
Since Sarah wasn’t particularly religious, she decided not to press the issue.
Her Boyfriend Fully Embraced Catholicism
However, since they started going to church together around two months ago, Sarah’s partner has fully embraced Catholicism.
Gaming and Faith
He studies the Bible and Catholicism online almost daily while playing games and multitasking by viewing religious testimonies.
He Is Obsessed With Religion
He constantly talks to Sarah about the Bible, Jesus, and other religious topics.
She Can’t Take It Anymore
Sarah says that she wants to listen to him and comprehend his renewed interest in and dedication to religion, but he is constantly consuming too much religious content, and she cannot take it anymore.
She is worried and at a loss for what to do.
Things Turned Ugly
Things took a turn when her partner told her over the weekend that they could no longer have premarital sex to strengthen his relationship with God and his religion.
This shocked Sarah, and she didn’t know how to respond.
She Doesn’t Know What to Do
She is currently wondering how to tell him that she doesn’t want to comply with his request because it hurts her feelings.
He Needs to Find Someone Who Shares His Passion
Sarah took to Reddit to ask for opinions, and hundreds of comments poured in.
One Reddit user wrote, “This is a big deal. Religion/ faith or the lack of it, is something that defines the way someone lives their life, as you’ve noted you’re experiencing with him no longer wanting to have premarital sex. I would definitely say to have that open discussion with him and let him know you feel about sex as well. This could be something that could be a huge incompatibility between you too.”
Another Redditor commented, “I hate telling you this, but as someone who was raised a Christian, read the whole Bible several times and such, and am now an Agnostic, I can tell you this will end your relationship. He’s going to want to find someone who shares his enthusiasm and dedication.”
