Melissa, who is Jewish, and Karl, who is Catholic, met more than 20 years ago, when they lived near one another during high school near Providence, R. Since every family has its own traditions, structure and quirks, it is hard to say what similarities certain couples find in their backgrounds, says psychologist Joel Crohn, author of the book Mixed Matches However, in many cases, Jewish families and Catholic families have an emphasis on religious rituals such as attending services, hosting holiday dinners and saying prayers.
So while the actual God may be different, the role of that God may provide a similar structure for both Jews and Catholics, says Crohn.
I’m just a nice Jewish girl looking for a nice Jewish guy. My mother wouldn’t murder me were I to ‘marry out’ but her heart would be so decimated by the nuclear bombdrop of a wedding planned without kosher catering that I’d probably wind up shooting myself in the face anyway.
So as time ticks on and the best of the local, reasonably aged Jewish males have been married off, I’ve made more of a concerted effort to put myself out there.Some people blame ‘being picky’ for the fact they’re perpetually single.I’m not picky - I wish I could afford that privilege.
