My fiancée and I love each other, but we are just not compatible in certain, very important ways. She is very religious. I'm not. I tried, but I'm just not a guy who can be the good, Catholic man she wants me to be.

How, SPECIFICALLY, is this schism affecting yr relationship?
Is this an argument about potentially raising children one day? If that's what it is, then I could see that becoming a legitimate issue.
If it's anything else, then, honestly, you two should be able to get over it.
I am Catholic -- I go to Latin Mass every week -- but, at the end of the day, religion is a private conversation between me and God. My husband generally doesn't go to Mass with me, but, we have a mutual understanding there, and we see eye-to-eye on the role of religion (and/or lack thereof) in raising our children.
I mean, our love is our love, and there's just no way I could see that sort of thing overcoming it.
So, yeah... SPECIFICS?

Sorry, if she is determined to marry a Catholic, then you have to break up. You are fundamentally incompatible. Her notion of waiting for you is romantic but unrealistic. People don't just decide to be religious or non-religious. Most non-religious people have considered the evidence for god and found it unpersuasive. Do not marry this woman. You will end up living a pretend life. Find a woman who shares your non-religious viewpoint.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
