An educated Jew steeped in Torah learning may choose to cease observing or to marry out and assimilate. One has the option to learn and then make an informed decision. The tragedy is that in the vast majority of cases people intermarry and assimilate without knowing what Torah Judaism is all about.
The belief that Jews have a unique role in the world does not negate the purposes of all other children from the same loving Creator. The sages teach that the righteous of all mankind have a share in the world to come.

Iv been told by numerous people plus i can sort of tell anyway. Problem is shes only just turned 17 about a month ago and i am 20 now, turning 21 early next year. I know its all fine and legal and all but it still doesnt quite seem right, just wondered what others thought. I can see problems like for example she cant drink legally and i like to go out a lot with my friends so that could cause a problem amongst other things.
Just wondered what people thought. I was 17 and had a 21 year old boyfriend way back when I was that age My parents were very protective, and the first time I stayed at his they panicked a bit we never did sleep together I didn't feel ready, but we did share a bed He would take me to the pub with him and his mates and I would just have soft drinks, we still had fun.
I might not be the best person to ask because it never developed into anything serious was only a few months but speed dating pau 64 the most part the age gap didnt seem to bother other people, nor did it bother either of us.
I hope you have some sort of communication with you son that is not all one sided to your benefit. He needs to know you listen to him, you care for him, and you are watching out for him while he makes his own choices.
Teens with bf and gf have a mindset and if patents don't show them any respect for the feelings they have for each other then the parents just doom themselves. So you hate her, her parents probably don't like him your son either because his parents you insinuate that their daughter is trash. You need some open communication without judgements and just listen.
