So you got invited to your boyfriend/girlfriend's house for seder? Does that mean you should expect a ring?

Return to the Guide to Passover for Interfaith Families.


In some families, bringing a boyfriend or girlfriend home for Passover indicates a strong level of commitment. In other families, holiday tables are open to everyone, and the more the merrier; your partner may not intend to signal anything by bringing you home.

You may not know until you get there – unless you ask. Because Passover is a family holiday with the same kind of family status as Thanksgiving or Christmas in Christian families, being a guest at their seder is a good opportunity for you to learn a lot about your partner's family and whether or not he or she brought you along to show that the relationship is serious.
