Jewish 26F with Ex-Catholic 36M Seeking Advice: Balancing Magic and Realities in Relationship

I am a 26F culturally Jewish and my partner is 35M ex-catholic, we’ve been together for a little over a year now. We clicked instantly. You know how people say there are two types of relationships, magic or numbers; well, ours definitely feels like magic. The past year has filled me up more than anything I have ever experienced. I feel like myself for the first time in my life when we are together. We bring out the inner children in each other, filled with so much genuine love, safety, joy and silliness.

However, I’m grappling with concerns about our future. I’ve always been unsure about having children, but lately, I’ve found it hard to imagine my partner as a serious father figure especially coming from different religious backgrounds. He does not practice any sort of religion, but his family does. I went to his hometown for xmas and they all prayed and it made me uncomfortable. Additonally, I’ve noticed that there are times when I feel more ambitious about my career than he does. He seems content with his mid-paying job, where he’s been for the past decade despite minimal growth, and he appears unfazed by it.

Right now, everything seems to be working out fine, but I can’t shake the fear that our differing priorities and upbringings might cause complications down the line. So, I turn to you, Reddit, for some impartial advice. What would you suggest to a friend in my situation?

Thank you for your insights and support.
