I don't know if any of you caught the conversation that Melena had with Zach about Zach's mother wanting him to marry a Jewish girl. Now, I'm not Jewish and I don't see why he would need to conform with the rules laid out by his mother. My mother or father never told me that I have to marry an Italian girl and in fact I didn't. Which leads me to the point of this thread. He also mentioned that being Jewish would not allow him to participate in a Christmas Celebration. This being Melena's favorite holiday, would she not have a problem with this and how would others feel if put into a predicament like this. Might not sound to trivial but isn't consolidation part of a relationship. I can see myself how that would put a wrench into my plans if that were a situation that I was faced with.
Just looking for your thoughts and experiences. I don't proffess to know much, just learning by asking and hopefully finding answers to life's questions. I better stop now before I start sounding like Tareq!
