Hasidic jewish dating
I knew how dedicated he was to his widow mom and I could tell he would go through fire for anyone he cares about. Since the parents had already taken care of the other important stuff like discussions about money among others, I happily told my parents to go ahead and let the other side know and after the matchmaker called to tell us he wanted to marry me too, we got officially engaged.
I didn’t think I would find out much more by a second meeting and I didn’t want to spend the night not sleeping from nerves. It’s true, we do actually get married to a stranger and there usually isn’t such a thing as falling in love.
I knew the family superficially, I was aware the father had passed away young and left behind the widow and 12 children, I knew they were a very close-knit family and you always saw the mom and her daughters together, in their own world. My parents were very interested and thought this would be the perfect guy for me.
They agreed to let me think it over and give them an answer.
We wanted to know about his character traits, is he kind-hearted? For the first few months, none of the suggestions panned out.
The boy was either not right for me or they decided I wasn’t right for them.
We just work harder at making our marriage grow and the love, as a result, is a deep, long lasting one.
Modern Orthodox Jews who are looking for a date tend to be quite open to Jewish dating services online.In the non-Jewish world, ours is what you would call an arranged marriage.I dislike that word though because in my mind, that equals a “forced” marriage.As much as the Jewish world is big, it’s actually very small. Basically, a good person who would make a good husband.We quickly found some mutual acquaintances who could tell us more about the boy. We can only do our best and hope the reports we got were truthful.
