My daughter is dating a non jew
Yet for my younger siblings, the fights were less intense and less frequent.
I paved the way for my sister to have a non-Jewish boyfriend in high school who actually could come in the house and sit in the living room without being treated as the invisible man. I am now married to a non-Jewish husband and the mother of two twenty-something children.

*** “I think I’m going to start dating, Mom,” Emily told me on the phone from college, when she was 19. This choice reflected her beliefs as an Orthodox girl: Dating happens only when you are marriage-minded.
I could see the advantages of this outlook on dating, but I had begun to wonder about its practicality.
