this is a question i’m often asked as well. at 31, i find myself single again after a 2.5 year relationship with a (Jewish) guy who, despite being extremely compatible and well-matched (religion had nothing to do with why i chose him), recently confessed he didn’t ever want to get married and had essentially given up on our relationship for no valid reason. there are no words to convey this heartbreak, and it hurts watching peers move ahead in their relationship while i now have to start all over.

at present time, i have no emotional capacity to even consider being with someone else as my grief is very strong. but eventually there will come a time where i have to get back out there. coming from a Conservative Jewish family, it’s natural that my parents would prefer someone Jewish. but after years of arguing over the topic, they’ve finally told me they wouldn’t stop me from marrying someone i love who can provide me with a good life even if they are not Jewish. that’s a major step from what it used to be, and considering how hard it is to find a decent human being in this world it’s even harder when religion puts a limit on one’s happiness.
