... the husband is the priest of his domestic church. The wife has the role of Mary. This is the way marriage was designed, it's Rule. Any change of power or role reversal will cause am imbalance. I want the man that I am to be with to step up and accept, happily, his role as priest of his domestic church. This is why I can never be with a non-Catholic man. Or even a Catholic that does not practice his faith.
There was a time when I felt differently and openly expressed this, causing a slight scandle. Admittedly, it was during a time when I was very much in deep like with a handsome non-Catholic gentleman. Feelings clouded good judgement by allowing superficial commonalities to supersede fundamental principles. Never again.
