Dating and marriage in greece dating in lv

I am hoping that whoever posted the below comment (or anyone else!) might read this and be able to provide some advice. I was raised a Greek Orthodox Christian and I married a Jewish man, we are still very much in love, have been together almost 20 years (married for 13 of them) and have two happy kids. Like many other Greek/Jewish couples today, we didn’t realize how difficult it would be to have an interfaith marriage until we were to the point of planning an engagement.Their own religion is important to each of them but they have no problem having an interfaith marriage. It must be done by a canonical Orthodox jurisdiction.Due to ridiculous restrictions by the Orthodox church, problems have been created. One of my priest friends told me he does know some Orthodox priests who will do interfaith, but it is very rare.Unfortunately, the GO/Jewish combination is a particularly thorny one (and maybe more rewarding as a result! Jews are not allowed to marry in the Orthodox Church.

My husband got baptized in a private ceremony for purposes of the ceremony, we had a small G. We had two boys; they’ve been brised and baptized, and they now go to Interfaith Sunday school. OUr boys will not be bar mitzvahed, a choice my husband made. These are the choice we’ve made, they are not perfect, but we are happy.Not all christians are allowed to marry in the Greek Orthdox Church either: only those non-orthodox Christians that have been baptized in the name of the Trinity are allowed to marry.And since an Orthdox Christian is not allowed to marry outside the Orthodox Church (whether in another christian church or civil/court ceremony), it doesn’t leave any options.I also was raised Greek Orthodox and am in a serious relationship with a Jewish man.We are really looking to see how we could have a future and family together, but there are not many available resources or people for us to talk to in a similar situation.
