American girl dating israeli men
"I can't keep hoping I meet a Jewish guy who is ready to get married," she told me recently.
"I really like Peter and while I don't yet know that he's the one, I'm open to seeing where it goes. That's my priority." Like Sara, most Jewish women wait for marriage before giving birth as their fertility wanes.
"But not all choices, no matter how good our intentions, have the outcome we hope for or expect." Lianne's husband, Mark, a secular Jew, is an equal partner to his wife in many ways.
He also wanted a Jewish household, but one that did not follow the strict rules of orthodoxy.
It covers everything from how to get started to proper profile and messaging etiquette in today’s online dating world.
And of those Jews who are married, 44 percent are married to non-Jews.
Like me, Lianne was once a more observant Jew, having become more religious in her twenties, attracted to family-style Sabbath dinners and holidays.
And like me, Lianne believed modern orthodox Jewish men would be more likely to want to marry and have children, which is what she and I both yearned for.
While I am no longer observant, I still identify strongly as Jewish.
I am traditional, and I plan to marry a Jewish man, regardless of whether or not I am still able to become a mother.
