The Saturday Morning Go Read Something Else Post

by Jodifur on December 6, 2008

I'm talking about raising a child in an interfaith family on DC Metro Moms.
And a question. Let's say you were going to a super swanky dinner that you were not paying for and are staying downtown in a super swanky hotel that you are paying for and your kid is with a sitter overnight. For you DCers, what do you do after dinner? It's been a longtime since I hung out downtown.

Just read your MetroMom’s post and the comments and I found it very interesting. My boyfriend and I are in a somewhat similar position — his family is Jewish and mine Christian — and we’re in the process of discussing what these things mean to us for when we are married and have children. Neither of us are religious ourselves and we both believe that religion is deeply personal and something each individual must come to terms with on their own, rather than just accept what their parents believe. But, we also believe that history, culture, and tradition are very important and want to incorporate his family’s Jewish culture and history and my family’s Christian traditions into our children’s lives. I’m always interested in how other families handle this situation.
