Catholics and jews dating
Though we are definitely not to that point yet, I like the idea.There’s only one problem: he’s Catholic and I am Jewish.We talked early on about the general idea of marriage and having children.More recently, we have started talking about being married and having children with each other.
We work at the same large company in different departments, and have a lot of shared interests, values, and goals.
I have recently started becoming more religious, and have been really enjoying exploring my faith.
All along, I just naturally assumed I would marry a Jewish man although I have dated other non-Jews before.
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.
I can’t say for certain, but it may have even been on our first date that Drew said he was adamant about raising his children Jewish. In my mind, these are more cultural things than religious things, anyway. So, how do you and your boyfriend come to making similar agreements that work for you? If you have a relationship/dating question I can help answer, you can send me your letters at I’ve been dating my boyfriend for about a year now and things are great.
