Dating someone less religious

Hi everybody,

I’m a 30F, conservative, dairy out kinda gal and as the title explains, I’m dating someone less religious than me. He’s raised reform, bar mitzvahed but more culturally Jewish than religiously. We’re serious and have been together over a year. Sometimes I enjoy sharing parts of my practice with him, sometimes I wish he could be more of a ba’al habeit and do things like recite kiddish. Occasionally we butt heads on things like my desire for sending any future children to say school.

My, for lack of a better term, “godmother” has made it clear to me that I need to plan for a future where he basically doesn’t change. I think she’s right, I’m just wondering if there are folks out there in similar relationships who could provide some insight- how are you doing in the long run?
