He thinks we can date as long as we dont force each other into our beliefs, but I do not know. Yes, intermarriage between Jews and non Jews is very difficult. I'm agnostic and fell in love with a Christian girl that wasn't religious. After she figured out that I wasn't gonna support her financially the way she wanted, she became cold, rude, and eventually left me. I just fell in love and thought she was a sweetheart. People have to be honest, say what they really mean, and know what they really want long-term.
I told her upfront that I would want our kids to be raised as Jews, not that they would have to go to Hebrew school, but that they would not go to church, be baptized and so on. the idea of converting was forgotten as if we never talked about it. I was okay with her not converting, it would sort of be selfish of me to force her. Otherwise, it won't really matter, you will end up miserable and or eventually divorced be it you marry same faith or not.
I think discussing religion is AS important as discussing having kids or any of the other fundimentals before persuing a serious relationship.
Best wishes Reply to :) Hi, My husband's best friend is Jewish and he has been dating a Christian girl for about 7 years.
Few years down the road she started entertaining idea of putting crosses in our house. It is also true that Jewish mothers would never completely accept their off spring marrying none Jew. Thanks to god we have internet dating sites So you can try them as last resort to find your soulmate...I am a Chrisitan girl and I am very good friends with a jewish guy.We have so much in common, he knows me so well, but he is not a Christian. We do not want to start something if it will be complicated for both of us and our religious beliefs. I wasn't truly looking for a marriage material girl, christian or jewish. So having said this, what matters more is not that you marry your own faith or not but rather who you are marrying and for what reason.Reply to Been there Been there, I find your post offensive.Referring to someone as a "jew boy" is unacceptable. I know plenty of people in your nieces situation, why would you or anyone else think this is characteristic of the Jewish faith??
