In the last two decades, interfaith marriage has emerged as one of the primary cultural realities of North American religious life. This book is a practical guide for parents whose children intermarry, drawing upon Rabbi Reuben's personal experiences officiating at over a thousand interfaith weddings. The author imparts the lessons he has learned for helping parents create loving, supportive, and successful relationships with their own children, their new son- or daughter-in-law, and their new interfaith in-laws, without compromising the integrity of their own dearly-held beliefs and faith. In addition, he incorporates anecdotal experiences of parents who share their own formulas for successfully coping with the day-to-day issues of maintaining the best relationship with their children. And he includes stories from same-sex unions, as well. Written for people of various faiths across the religious spectrum, the book is a valuable source of information, guidance, and support.
