Non jewish girl dating a jewish man
As I said, I’ve grown up conservative and my fathers mother was even more religious.
And like me, Lianne believed modern orthodox Jewish men would be more likely to want to marry and have children, which is what she and I both yearned for.
"But not all choices, no matter how good our intentions, have the outcome we hope for or expect." Lianne's husband, Mark, a secular Jew, is an equal partner to his wife in many ways.
He also wanted a Jewish household, but one that did not follow the strict rules of orthodoxy.

For the sake of full disclosure, I’ll admit right now that I have a visceral reaction to intermarriage. Although she did not raise us with too much observance, marrying Jewish was something she drilled into my sisters’ and my heads.
