Dating a pro lifer
We got engaged quickly and planned a wedding in a few months.In the span of a year, I had gone from living with a man-child that I assumed I loved but never wanted to marry to marrying a man who was so very different in so many ways.The only thing I heard more frequently than classic rock or country music on the radio were conservative talk shows.Like most working-class small-town families, we didn't have a lot of money, but we had a lot of Protestant-based religion and work-ethic-based pride.When I was 22 years old, I left my boyfriend of four years.We had grown up together in Rural America--went to the same parties, had the same friends, etc. My friends fractured and took sides, which I should have seen coming but totally did not.I remember saying, "When I grow up, I want to be a secretary." And when I think of that now, I just cringe.

We are both in our mid 60's so her becoming pregnant is extremely unlikely. When you say you are pro-choice, you are basically saying, "I'm selfish and proud of it! On the other hand, if we're talking about somebody who's just honestly misguided about abortion but not all into the liberal feminist movement, maybe there could be a chance.
And please know that we'll do our best to assist you during this transition. Yes, I do know and accept that God can cause anything to happen. To me it trancends women's lib and is a basic moral issue. Am I really responsible for how another adult feels about this issue even if it should be a potential wife? I personally could not even date someone with such a stance.
