The Orthodox Church does not subscribe to the heretical teachings of Roman Catholicism (i.e. papal infallibility, purgatory, immaculate conception). The Orthodox Church has not changed its teachings with the passing of years as has the Roman Catholic Church (all of the above are innovations, some as recently as the late 1800's). While the Roman Catholic Church continues to struggle with a clergy with enforced celibacy (and undoubtedly as a result, the recent revelation of a clergy rampant with sexual deviance), the Orthodox Church allows a married priesthood which is, quite frankly, a healthier situation.

Why one would tie himself to Roman Catholicism rather than the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church (i.e. the Orthodox Church) is a mystery to me.

I wish you well but I think, in the long run, you will regret your decision.
