Jewish and gentile dating
He either deduced, or was told, that his weak chin gave him an appearance which made him incongruous with a head honcho position.He went to the plastic surgeon, got his chin built up via an implant, and was promoted. There are probably some secular Jews who do care and will only want to marry someone Jewish.I love your posts, Usuario, but, I have to disagree on this one. Many of my friends and several cousins are the children of Jewish men and their gentile wives.There's nothing really racist about it; if a Jewish man marries a gentile woman, their kids aren't Jewish, and assimilation has won. All of my cousins on the Jewish side of the family have gentile mothers, and all identify as being Jewish and were raised Jewishly. Another friend's father was a Holocaust survivor who had children late in life with a gentile woman.He fasts on YK (started out because he wouldn't eat in front of me and now it's for another reason I think? However, I don't think he will formally convert any time soon, though.
BTW: I'm not being shallow, just observant of social phenomenon. I find beauty starts from within, but that's just me. Juliet Bravo, I'm in the same situation - only my husband is a little slower to want to convert. Still, he helped me put the mezuzot up and observes the Jewish holidays with me as much as he can. Therefore, conversion is part and parcel of the discussion. Something about that must emit a lack of genuine commitment.
I suspect that many an Orthodox Jew would say that this is their "pintele Yid" within them that is guilting them into preserving a Judaism they don't even believe in.
