And, of course, I could cite those affairs as examples of Marvel simply not thinking these things through.
It seems that just how devout a Catholic Kurt is doesn't depend on logical development of character, but just on what the writer's mood is at the moment.
Oh, and I've seen the movies. And I've also had some real-world experience going through a lot of stuff with people.
Hey, if sticking together through hell and high water is enough to ensure a solid relationship, I would have married my bipolar ex-fiance who refused to take his meds, because I was there for him through the fallout of his divorce from his abusive, unfaithful, ex-wife, I was there for him when he started recovering memories of childhood abuse, he was there for me and my family when my grandfather died and my brother's kidney problems were diagnosed.... Make no mistake- there was a definite bond, not easily broken there. But we would have been miserable if we remained together.

I believe that Kurt remains a devout Catholic in some aspects, but when he gets too devout he usually gets angsty. Also I can cite Kurt becoming a priest as Marvel not thinking things through, it was pretty much from what I've read "Ooohh...let's make Kurt a Priest" where as most of his "affairs" were a nice part of the storyline".
The level of devotion to a religion changes with writers in other people than Kurt, I mean sometimes Kitty acts very Jewish and sometimes she doesn't that part of the difference of the writers.
I really doubt that you can compare real life relationships to comic book relationships, cause they don't make sense. I mean it comic books we got Cyclops marrying the clone of his dead girlfriend, then dumping her when his dead girlfriend isn't dead anymore. We got Professor X in a relationship with an Empress from an intergalatic empire, it doesn't make sense, I mean I'm supporting a couple consisting of a blue furry demon and the alternate daughter of Scott and Jean who has the Phoenix force in her, it doesn't make sense, so in conclusion if Chewbacca lived on Endor you must acquit, oops wrong agruement.
Out of curiosity how many people have I convinced that Kurt/Rachel is an okay pairing?
Added in to respone to Ang's latest post:
All right....is it that difficult to imagine that Kurt had feeling for Rachel while he also had feeling for Storm....I'm just asking cause you seem to just think that it was a mistake on Kurt's part, and while it may have been there is still proof that he had his eyes on both Storm and Rachel.
We all know that marrying comic characters off just adds more convulted crap into the arena, look at Scott and Jean.
Who is to say that what Kurt has gone thru is not sensible character devlopment, from what I've seen it's about the level of oddity with every other Marvel character.
