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

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 status of Thanksgiving or Christmas, you can learn a lot about your partner's family as a Passover guest, even if he or she didn't bring you along to show that the relationship is serious.

The Guide to Passover for Interfaith Families is also available in PDF and Word formats.

The spring holiday commemorating the Exodus of the Jews from slavery in Egypt. The Hebrew name is "Pesach."
