Dear Abby: I am a woman in my 30s with a good head on my shoulders, but I have a dilemma. I recently became Wiccan and I’m hiding my new religion from my fiance.
I was raised Protestant but have drifted away from Christianity. My fiance was raised Catholic but no longer practices. He’s not actively involved in any religion, but I’m worried about how he will react to learning that I’m now a “witch,” which is just a broad term for anyone who follows the Wiccan spiritual path. I don’t want him to think I’ve lost my mind, but I also can’t keep hiding my beliefs from him. Secrets are never a positive thing in a relationship, but I’m worried about how this news will be received. Please help. — West Virginia Wiccan
