Orthodox dating guidelines

However, living in a multicultural city, finding such a person has become virtually impossible for me (let alone finding a nice person.) I can't see myself lowering my standards just to 'settle,' and get married, however, if I don't then do I risk being alone for the rest of my life? Any differences in belief will make for a difficult challenge.... Which, ironically, works pretty well in this world, not so much in the next.

Orthodox dating guidelines

I am very proud of my faith and consider myself devout. What are your opinions regarding marrying outside our faith? Marriage is difficult enough without disparity of worship. If she had not been willing, I would not have married her.

I've always said I'd marry an (Greek) Orthodox Christian, only because it would mean a great deal to me to raise my family according to how I believe. Are you saying that you're worried about marrying a non-Greek Orthodox? It's sometimes difficult to express to single young folks just how difficult it is to keep marriages together in modern society, AND then it's even more difficult to have a Christ-centered family life on top of that.

Orthodox are prohibited from having sex or touching when the woman is on her period.

I can already hear a collective sigh of frustration from secular women everywhere, but hear me out.

Being the yenta I am, I tried to offer assistance, to which he responded (without making eye contact), “Not you.” This might sound really weird and kind of sexist to some, as it did to my boyfriend.
