I don't want to turn this into a typical "LOVE" thread, but more to the point I need some opinions.
I'll keep this short, and won't drag anything out.
I've been with my girlfriend for about a year and a half now, we're 22, and our relationship is pretty good. I love her dearly but there is a big problem for me - we don't have sex. She's a devout catholic and I'm not religious. We had sex when we first dated, and I took her virginity. She was pretty willing at that point, but it really stuck with her since then. We haven't had sex for about 1 year 4 months (I'm counting).
I have had other sexual relationships before her, but I was her first. She wants to wait until we tie the knot down the road (4-5 years). And it's not that we just don't have sex... we don't do anything except kiss. And it FRUSTRATES me so much. I love her, and I show it to her, yet my body is.... seriously, I don't think I can take it much longer. I tell her all of the time how hard it is to not even touch one another (fool around) and she says it makes us stronger.
She is the love of my life, but it's causing a rift between us. I can't simply be content with kissing at 22. Seriously, I feel like I'm in elementary school. I hate to think that the fact for me breaking up with her is over the lack of sex, but it's really driving me crazy.
Plus, in order to get married to her I have to become Catholic according to her mom. Be baptized, go to church, study in catholic school and then take confirmation. I.... I don't want to do that either. I don't believe in a God and that's my choice. I've told her "why should I fake it?" and she says "its for our children, so they don't grow up in a broken home."
So what do I do? Please don't post stupid remarks, I'm looking for some genuine input here guys. Thanks.
EDIT - WAY WRONG FORUM. Can a forum mod move this to OT? Didn't even notice I posted in it general. Thanks.
