Dating is a fun and exciting time for new lovers to take. However, sometimes key core issues can pose as a deal breaker for the other person. Especially one, such as religion. In the past, I have dated people that are Jewish like me and some that do not have the same religion. You think in the beginning when you both have strong feelings for each other everything is fine and well and it would never be an issue.
But, it certainly does become a major issue if one of you is more religious in their religion. My mom is Jewish and my dad is a Christian. But, in the Jewish religion, the children carry the religion of their mother. Even though we were raised Jewish, we still celebrated Christmas and Easter out of respect since my dad is Christian. Marrying someone with the same Jewish blood is important because I can help to carry on the legacy.
It is important to myself and my grandmothers that the guy I marry is Jewish so that the children can be educated and emerged in a Jewish home and culture. Once, I dated a guy that was very anti-semitic. He would constantly make Jew jokes and so, I never saw him as someone that would be okay with my religion. It sucked.. It taught me an important lesson though.
He might love you more than any guy as ever loved you before. It is certainly true. You deserve to be with someone that can at the very least respect your religious choices and beliefs. Pick wisely and pick well. How religious are they? Are they hoping you will convert to their religion?
Be sure to have a discussion about religion before things get too serious. And make sure to look for red flags along the way as a tip to stay away and pick better. A guy you are with should love you for you and never try to convert you, unless this is something you are interested in or willing to at least try.
It needs to be a decision you want and are willing to make. You should never feel pressured to convert. Religion is a very important topic to go over with your ificant other. Do not brush it off. Sit down with a list of questions already drawn up and go back and forth asking each other the questions.
The questions should help you both to see where you stand in the relationship. Best you know now before you are married or better yet, have kids. This explains why many people marry within.
