if you were in a relationship with a goyim, would you require them to eat kosher too? In your own house, yes, of course, I understand that...but if you went out to eat, and they had a ham sandwich or pork ribs...or ate bacon or sausage at breakfast time--how much would that bug you? You have no reasonable expectation for them to keep kosher, even though they might do so, to respect your views, but they might "forget" not having been raised to not eat, for example, pork products, which you think of as unclean.

I would not require anyone to do anything they didn't want to. If I was in a relationship with a Gentile (by the way, goyim is plural. The singular is goy), she could eat all the bacon she wanted to--just not on my dishes and plates. She would also have to learn about the separation of meat and dairy dishes and utensils. But other than that, it's not an issue to me.

I'm certainly willing to limit my intake of said foods--but I don't know how much she'd freak if I happened to forget. That's why I wondered. And thanks for the correction, Fred.

ah...this one does though. I suppose I could ask HER what HER opinion is, and before we actually meet in person, I will.

Just for the record, for anyone stopping by this thread who's not Jewish, there are not "levels" of Judaism. Bobinc was asking if the person is Hasidic, Orthodox, Conservative, or Reform.

bob...that was a bad choice of wording!

My husband is NOT Jewish, but I am. Yes, I married outside the faith, he is agnostic. It doesn't bother me, my heart wanted what it wanted, I love him regardless of his religious beliefs. BTW-- we don't keep a strictly kosher home. When we go out, if he wants a BLT or wants some ham, go for it! I am not about to change him.

For those wondering-- I am Reform, prior to this current synagogue, I attended a Conservative one.

As a goy, I'm butting in here a bit, but I believe I'm correct in stating that most if not all Jews who believe Jewish law is binding on anybody believes it is binding on Jews. To various degrees.

We goyim get the Noachide Commandments, which are like "Morality for Incredibly Dumb Dummies." Not unfitting, considering the state of gentile standards of behavior 6,000 years ago.
