Interfaith dating jews Free cam sluts no register
Or that was the case when I moved to New York City after college.
When I feel dating fatigue, I think of HBO’s Sex and the City’s Charlotte York, who wailed “I’ve been dating since I was 15. It may be the biggest reason why now I give greater pause when a friend from college (Jewish but with an emphasis on the ish) says “Finding the right person is hard enough as it is. ”I turned to Naomi Schaefer Riley, who wrote 2013’s ‘Til Faith Do Us Part: How Interfaith Marriage Is Transforming America, for which she commissioned a study on interfaith couples.The message of Sex and The City, and romantics and pragmatists alike is: you love who you love.Follow that and don’t be constrained by any boundaries.According to a 2013 survey from the Pew Research Center, the rate of intermarriage among non-Orthodox Jews is 71 percent.
Thus, statistically, as an American Jew who is not Orthodox, there are overwhelming odds that I will, ultimately, marry someone who is not Jewish—if I marry at all (the fast-growing number of single Americans suggest there’s also a decent shot I won’t wed).Moreover, it’s not just, as Riley referred to, “an issue of opportunity.” The logic behind exclusively marrying someone who shares your religion doesn’t necessarily seem compelling in a modern and increasingly secular society.
