Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

She's only interested in attending the LC home meetings as far as I know. I couldn't see us attending LC home meeting, men's group meeting, and another couple's meeting. I have hoped there could be...

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

She has not mentioned anyone from the LC, and where I go there are several different ones. I don't know any of them on a personal level since it's a big church. She doesn't know too many people in...

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

We're thinking to have a small ceremony with family and friends, and it won't be at the LC. We're not sure who will officiate yet, but my neighbor is one option (he's got the license or whatever it...

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

After lots of praying and speaking with my counselor, I have decided to proceed with our relationship. She is dedicated to me and to the Lord and is not so "bound" to the LC as others are. There...

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

Thanks everyone for the feedback. I have emailed her my concerns with the LC, so let's see what she says about it. I'm really thankful for your supportiveness.

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

Yeah, you are right Ohio. What I meant was that I don't feel like I need to be with her because I'm not fully committed yet. If we marry I would never be accepting of divorce, so that's why I...

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

Man, you could not have pointed out more clearly the issues I have with them. I will try my best, though I am not too good with dialog and words. I think I can succeed if I keep my focus on what...

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

What I meant was that I consider myself "complete" in Christ. I'm not looking or depending on someone else to complete me. In addition, I already have a family (my child) and a house, which are...

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

She has already told me that she didn't like me having a lot of "opinions" about her church group, but she did listen to my concerns. I didn't get much feedback, but I guess at least she listened.

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

I've mentioned verbally a lot of my concerns like this, especially regarding the one source of information (from Lee and Nee, recovery version, etc). I also told her I see her church at a "Living...

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

Wow, I didn't realize marriages were arranged in the LC. There was a time in the summer I visited and there was a young couple getting married. They didn't even seem to "go" together very well. ...

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

Oh yes, we are really in love with each other. I live in the boonies, and she's willing to move here. She'll be about 50 minutes from the nearest Chinese grocery and 50 minutes from the nearest LC....

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

She visited her old friend (an older motherly type) in Nevada earlier this month, and she seems to have gotten "recharged" from it. I told her to ask her friend about us getting married, and her...

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

She said after we get married that I can go to my church and she can go to hers. We are both perfectly fine with that. The problem comes when we have kids. I really don't like the thought of my...

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

Thanks dude. I'd never join the LC or anything I deem "weird". It's really easy to speak of breaking off the relationship, but in reality it is really hard to do. I believe there is hope that...

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

Thanks for the feedback. She's not been a Christian for too long, but her first experience was in the LC in grad school. I'm not exactly sure how their program reaches people because US college...

Practically engaged to an LCer

I'm practically engaged to an LCer. We've been talking about getting married, and lately I've discussed what Sundays and the Christian life would look like after we are married and living together. ...
