Overview

Mike and Jean found one another in the most unorthodox way. Mike was a Roman Catholic priest, who struggled with his vow of chastity but wanted to remain in the priesthood. Jean was a widow, who was a Catholic intent on obeying the laws of the Church. After much soul searching between each other and discussion within their spiritual support group, they entered into a celibate love relationship publicly.

Mike had his first sexual experience not very long after his ordination, when he got involved with a married woman, ten years older than himself. Once he experienced the ecstasy of being with a woman, there was no turning back, nor could he bring himself to give up his vocation. He continued to be sexually involved throughout his priesthood, that is, until he met Jean.

He was looking for a way to be true to his vows, but also have his needs met to love and be loved. Jean was a strong, virtuous woman, who had always lived on the straight and narrow and seemed to be just the right companion for this intention.

Mike Conley received a Master of Science in chemistry and a Master of Science in Administration from the University of Notre Dame. He was a Roman Catholic priest in the Congregation of Holy Cross for twenty-one years and has taught high school science in parochial and public schools.

Jean Conley holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in human behavior and a Master of Theology in contemporary Christianity. She has had life coach training and authored a book on the subject of self-image, entitled Coach Your Way to a Great Self-Image.

Mike and Jean reside in La Quinta, California, where they are administrators of an online university that offersministerial and theological degrees. They have been married for over twenty years and continue to have a passionate love relationship.
