Catholic girl dating jewish guy

If he isn’t okay with that — and he’d have to be willing, obviously, to have at least pre-marital counseling with a rabbi — then that’s a pretty good indication he wouldn’t really be okay with raising his kids Jewish and there wouldn’t be any sense in you continuing your relationship with him. Start with the idea of your wedding and build from there. Explain to him how important they are — how serious you feel about him and how much you need to have these issues resolved before you can move to the next stage in your relationship.And if he isn’t ready to be thoughtful about these topics, it may be time for you to think about moving on.

I don’t know if you’re aware, but my husband, Drew, is Jewish and I’m not.

I was raised Lutheran, though I don’t practice any religion at all now. So, I told Drew way before we got married that I was fine with raising our future kids Jewish — I’ll even take some Judaism classes before then — but the deal is he’s got to be the driver in that regard — I’ll be a passenger along for the ride — and we have to incorporate some of the cultural traditions that are important to me.

Not that I’d ever advise waiting that long for some resolution.

To that end, when we started talking about marriage to each other, I brought up the “religion question,” but whenever I bring it up, he shuts it down or shrugs it off, saying that it doesn’t matter what religion you raise kids with, as long as you give them good morals.
