Well, hell

Sweet One put me on notice today the new boyfriend is atheist.


That came out of nowhere.

I am not wild about that concept.

She explained his parents divorced when he was like two and his family have gone to an atheist church before.

She added one of her best friends freaked out about it and pissed her off.

Me, I am trying not to get too shaken up about it. Would I prefer he be Christian? Absolutely.

However, she is fourteen. I doubt the religion issue played a huge part what she attracted her to him and who knows how long this budding romance is going to last.

Further, I am not sold on the fact he is atheist.

Later in the day when she told him best little friend freaked out about it, he responded: No problem. Do you want me to go to church with you? Thats cool.

As I said, I do not think he is a die hard atheist.

Now, I really cannot wait to meet his mother on Saturday.

The old flame is looking really good to me right now. Oh, yeah, I am still pulling for CN!!

Yikes! That would be a tough one to deal with for me for sure.

Isn't "atheist church" an oxymoron? lol!

Hmm. Well, the good thing is, such relationships don't usually last. Not that he's a bad kid, but, oh heck, you know what I mean, right?

Hey, I turned out fine and I'm atheist! :)

I wouldn't sweat it too much really though, if she's strong in her beliefs then some boy won't change her.

wait. An atheist CHURCH? I'm more than a tad confused by that one.
And at 14, is he really sold on one religion?

This ought to be interesting.

i don't think i could do that -- religion / faith is way too important to me.

Yeah, gotta say I'm puzzled by the "atheist church". I thought the whole atheist thing is that they don't believe in worshipping a God - therefore no church.

Also - she is 14. It's difficult for older people to keep up relationships. So much will change for her over the next 10 years, she'll have any number of friends (male and female) that will come and go as she learns and matures. He'll change too which is why it's difficult for young teens to carry a relationship over into adulthood. They may still be together in 10 years - but the chances are far more along the lines of them either being friends or devolving into "someone I used to date".

(well, unless he was into devil worship - that would be worrisome... I don't think Sweet One would be attracted to that type of guy anyhow)
