interesting article, and yet most people aren’t aware of it.
earlier this year, i went to a wedding where the bride was Jewish and the groom wasn’t. they had a friend perform the ceremony, and while there wasn’t much mention of religion the presence of the chuppah, wine sipping, and glass breaking were there. they had a very meaningful ceremony with a small crowd, and i only wish more couples did the same instead of focusing on the materialistic side of weddings.
i hope to do something like what the article mentions if i ever get married (i’m 31 and although i’ve had a few long relationships, none were interested in marriage), regardless of whether the person is Jewish or not.
