Not very religious Jewish man dating a Catholic girl

Not extremely religious Jew marrying a Catholic girl

Okay. I can already see the type of comments i’m gonna get on this post but maybe one person will be understanding and give real advice

So, I (23, M) am with the greatest girl i’ve ever met (not exaggerating). I’m from a very Jewish background, and was raised semi-Jewish. I’m not necessarily the most religious person on earth, but I still want to keep my culture and family traditions alive.

My GF (23, F) is very Catholic and very religious, and obviously this comes with a lot of “rules” for the future, for lack of better words.

I’m starting to seriously think about the prospect of marriage with her. And I have some doubts.

  1. I have no idea what to do about the wedding. I definitely feel weird about being married in a church.. it just feels wrong.

  2. I never really thought I would raise my kids very religious, but when faced with the question I’d much rather lean on my family traditions and ethnicity and raise them Jewish. I know promising to raise kid’s Catholic is a staple of a Catholic marriage. And I can’t lie to the church / my girlfriend and tell her I want to do that.

Those are the main concerns. The issue is, truly, she’s the most spectacular person i’ve ever met. I’m at a loss. I’m not religious. But going all in on Catholicism is difficult for me because of my background. I do not believe what catholics believe at all.. it’s a slap in the face of the church for me to pretend I do. I’m just overall confused at what to do.
