I'm Anglican (Christian) and the girl I really like is Jewish, I'm really thinking hard as to how it would work out, has any one been in / heard of similar experiences?

Hello, you are in rather a tough situation. Though you are Anglican , you are a Christian and you know the hatred between the Christian and the Jews. This is something like the condition between Hindus and the Muslims. There are no social marriage between say a Muslim guy and a Hindu girl, but there are some instances when they entered into marriage and are living a happy life. I am not hopeful about you. Still try to make the parents understand or if not do what your hear says. Now things are not that rigid as before. Wish you luck.

unfortunately I'm all too aware of the antiscemetic nature of the modern world, no matter how much people try to cover it up. I didn't know that it was like that with Hindu's and Muslims! (you learn something everyday!) I can't imagine my parents would mind (they're pretty liberal) but hers might be a different story. Thanks for the luck! (I think I'm going to need it!)

"Hatred" between Christians and Jews? I don't find that statement true at all (at least not in the present day), if anything there is a perpetuating hatred between Muslims and Jews. At least on a global scale.

If she is a religious Jew, her family will not want the marriage. If she still marries you, then the children will have to be raised Jewish. If she says that she is Jewish, then she is most likely a practicing Jew or the subject would never have come up. Just be prepared to have your children raised as Jews. If you can live with that, then Mazel Tov! L'Hiam! Good Luck and Good Life! Shalom~Adoniah

I am a Mennonite Christians and my husband is a Muslim. Our relationship is quite strong, based on the fact that we completely accept one another the way we are and have mutual respect for each other's religion. The problem in your situation is that most Jews will not marry outside of their religion, so that is something you'll have to talk with her about her views.
