Who is this guy and what kind of a website is he selling? So I was comforted to know that Adam wasn’t an obscure man selling an elusive online product. Adam has worked in youth ministry as a camp director through the Antiochian Archdiocese. Adam is in the Saint Stephens Certificate Program, an intensive three-year course is for laymen or clergy interested in a rigorous introduction to Orthodox faith and practice.
The owner of is Adam Lowell Robert and this is what I’ve learned: Adam is employed by the Antiochian Archdiocese. (There is a book he wrote on the subject of evangelism, 100 Natural Ways to Grow A Church.) He’s so good at what he does; he even has a podcast and a blog on the subject.
I don't think God wants me to be lonely and alone. Others may jump in, but as a Catholic myself I would say that a mixed marriage (Orthodox/Catholic) is problematic. My Easter is March 31st; what if my wife's was in May?
I am very proud of my faith and consider myself devout. What are your opinions regarding marrying outside our faith? Marriage is difficult enough without disparity of worship. If she had not been willing, I would not have married her.
I've always said I'd marry an (Greek) Orthodox Christian, only because it would mean a great deal to me to raise my family according to how I believe. Are you saying that you're worried about marrying a non-Greek Orthodox? It's sometimes difficult to express to single young folks just how difficult it is to keep marriages together in modern society, AND then it's even more difficult to have a Christ-centered family life on top of that.
However, living in a multicultural city, finding such a person has become virtually impossible for me (let alone finding a nice person.) I can't see myself lowering my standards just to 'settle,' and get married, however, if I don't then do I risk being alone for the rest of my life? Any differences in belief will make for a difficult challenge.... Which, ironically, works pretty well in this world, not so much in the next.

And no, I would never marry anyone who's Prottestant or any other group 'claiming' any belief in Christ.
