My fiancé is Jewish (I am not) and his father passed away in April of this year. He says that although he feels more culturally Jewish, he wants to honor his father by doing the right thing. We got engaged last month and have started to talk about dates. We want to get married as quick as possible, but he says he thinks he can’t do it according to Jewish law until May 2022. We would appreciate any help here because we both don’t know what the right thing to do is. It’s not only important to him that we do it right, it’s important to me too. I loved his father and want to do what he would have thought appropriate (especially because his religion was an important part of his life).
