Jewish men dating catholic women

And among Jews who marry non-Jews, the birth rate is lower at 1.8. " , lightly based on some of her posts here on Huffington Post Women, will be released in early 2014 by Seal Press and Penguin Canada.As Lianne gently put Jacob back into his stroller, she repeated her earlier words, perhaps empathizing with my remaining single and childless at age 44. We thought a closer tie to Jewish observance would lead to love, marriage and children. I contacted Pew Research for a deeper understanding as to whether it's Jewish men or women who are more likely to intermarry.The previous study by the NJPS suggested that Jewish women are less likely to intermarry, citing a higher sense of Jewish spirituality and greater desire to marry within. "Jewish women are slightly more likely to be intermarried than Jewish men," Liga Plaveniece, Communications Associate, Religion & Public Life Project, Pew Research Center, explained exclusively to me via email.Perhaps Jewish men are less interested in marriage overall? But what is does report is that "American Jews overwhelmingly say they are proud to be Jewish and have a strong sense of belonging to the Jewish people." Ninety-four percent of American Jews, of all denominations, regardless of martial status, and equally among genders, believe this. our production of Jewish children, is lower than the national birthrate (2.2) at 1.9.But interestingly, among Jews married to Jews, the birth rate is 2.8, much higher than the national birth rate."But not all choices, no matter how good our intentions, have the outcome we hope for or expect."

And like many never-married Jewish women, Sara is not alone in her consideration of later-age intermarriage.

"Among married Jewish women, 47 percent are married to a non-Jewish spouse.

Among married Jewish men, 41 percent are married to a non-Jewish spouse." While only a slight difference, Jewish women are more likely to marry non-Jewish men than Jewish men are likely to marry non-Jewish women and that raises the question as to why. While a quarter of American Jews have never married, Liga Plaveniece added that "of single, never married Jews, 53 percent are men and 47 percent are women." So, if there are more single Jewish men (perhaps a surprise to single female Jewish readers who lament a lack of available Jewish men), then why are nearly half of Jewish women intermarrying?
