My girlfriend is Catholic and I've been going to her youth groups every Friday and sometimes her family takes me to church on Sunday. I'm don't have a religion btw At first, I was a little skeptical about the faith because I never believed in God. I am a little stubborn and I didn't care about the stuff they were talking about. She wanted me to take me there since she thought it'd better our relationship. After a while, I slowly grew closer to God. I'm glad that I'm growing closer to him. But my real question is: should I take the steps to trying to become a Catholic? I want to do it for myself and my girlfriend because I really want to try to overcome my horrible past. Also I don't have anyone going against me. My mom is actually very supportive of it since she's a Catholic herself too but I stopped going to church with her since I thought it was boring but now I was thinking of going to church again.

I come from a non-religious background, but that has no bearing on what I will say. An ex of mine was catholic. She never pressured me to go to church or anything, so I just thought it kind of awkward that your girlfriend would have you go to church with her. If you feel good about it then I'd say do what you like, but if it all started because she wanted you to theologically change for her you may want to step back and evaluate the situation. For instance, would she still be with you if you chose not to convert or go with her? You seem pretty confident, which is good, but if you really feel like it's serious with this girl, than think if she'd still feel the same way if you didn't want to be catholic in the end, or didn't want to go to church.
But if you feel good about all this, than by all means go for it, but religion or lack-there-of is a purely personal choice, not something to be decided by anyone else.0
