    Thanks bluemoon73! I'm still not convinced it was the right thing for him to abandon you and I (as a believer) had I been in his shoes probably would never have.

    I want to share with you an interesting story. My friend Rosemary in Austin, TX met and fell in love with a coworker at the University of Texas. She her whole life was a practicing devout Catholic like many Hispanics are. She was pursued by a very handsome researcher who knew she was a strong believer and asked her out anyway despite himself being an atheist.

    They eventually got married and that marriage lasted almost five years until he lost his battle with cancer at only 54. Her concern was *not* whether God exists or not. If it turns out God is not real, when we all die our consciousness stops and sensation ends and that is it. But if it turns out that God is real, what will happen to the man she loved so very deeply?

    My answer to her was this - "On the chance that there is a God and there is a plan in this crazy chaos of life, as much as you loved him, Rosemary, God loves him infinitely more. God loves everyone the same. Your husband was connected in other ways to things that are good especially his love for nature, the environment, and for animals. And he treated you like a queen - far better than a lot of religious guys treat their wives. If Heaven does exist, you will see him again, I am convinced of it."

    I went through this too with a beautiful girl named Susan who was also an unbeliever who rejected me because of that. While I understood her reasons, it still hurt. This girl was incapable of hating anyone including God. She just didn't believe he existed. The point is that I don't want you to lose confidence in your prospects if the next guy who happens to be religious falls for you. Rosemary's marriage was a very strong one. And her husband's incredible capacity to give and receive love is probably like yours, bluemoon73.

    But whether you believe or not - you still sound like an awesome human being that will be an incredible partner for someone when the time comes. Please do not ever forget that! ;-)
