It’s not that they didn’t mind me being a Christian; they were atheist and didn’t care about religion at all.
Eventually, the polite talk will get stuck on one and only one subject – conversion. In the worst case scenario, in the eyes of a very religious Jewish mother, even conversion won’t make you good enough for her son. But hey, let’s try to be optimistic again–maybe you’ve decided that you want to convert to please the family (mostly the mother) of your loved one.Do you think your problems will end the moment you officially become a Jew? You are so proud of yourself now–you converted, you got married and maybe you are even expecting a baby. She is a great cook, and you probably only know how to make a scrambled egg.She will feed your husband even if he is fat and she will give you “that” look when you try to talk about leading a healthy lifestyle.Most non-Jewish girlfriends, fiancés and wives struggle with most of the things I’ve mentioned above.Being in a culturally mixed relationship is, in my opinion, one of the most fascinating things that can happen to a woman – yet, it is one of the most challenging ones, as well.
