Alright /love , I need some advice. About a year ago I started seeing a woman who I met through some friends and after a couple of months we started dating. Things have been going great with her and after the hell of my last relationship she’s been a total angel, taking me from the sad drunkard I was and really made my life better.
Well if you don't feel much attachment to your own religion you could consider converting. Also if this girl is that important to you, you should be able to handle that at the very least right? Religion and relationships are one thing, having to deal with the family isway out there haha. Good luck.
Thanks Otakun, I could look into converting to being Jewish, but I don't know if they'd accept that or not but it's a great idea. I've got the stamina to stay with this, but I don't know if she can stand the harassment from her family though.
So I figure I should come back and give an update, the Jewish conversion idea is apparently a no go, as I'm not 'pure blood Jew' (their exact words) they still won't accept me. She's moving out tonight, and that means sporadic at best contact with her over the next 6+ months. I'm still at a loss for ideas to get this working, but I guess this is something that I'll just have to deal with for now.
Dude, "pure-blood" Jewish are REALLY easy to notice. I don't know about your ethnicity, but as for me, even though I'm caucasian, I couldn't disguise myself as Jewish.
And that's quite the dumb approach anyway, honestly. You see, for a relationship to work adequately, you both gotta be willing to make your concessions. You're willing to do yours, but it seems she really isn't so much into hers. I know it's difficult and all, but they're placing an obstacle in her life and she's like "Omg, I nothing I can do"? This isn't too fair for you. You both need to have a GOOD talk.
As I was reading this I kept on getting more and more confused- until I saw that she was Jewish.
You will never be accepted by her family, ever. If she doesn't want to leave now, most likely she won't in the future.
well religion issues between relationships is a somewhat an issue that needs to be discussed between the two parties involved and in your case it is better if the two of could talk and discuss these things seriously before decisions are made.
