Re: DH wants to convert. I dont understand...

What about his decision to convert bothers you? I know that personally my faith journey has changed quite a lot over the years. I was raised nothing until my mom remarried, celebrated Jewish holidays from the age of 11-18 (plus a very non Christ centered Christmas), started going to church at age 20, was baptized in the Episcopal Church at 24, and at 36 am now a practicing Presbyterian. It could just be a natural progression of where his life has taken him.

For those of you worried about the children, in Judaism, religion is passed down through the mother, so if the mother is not Jewish, then the children won't be seen as Jewish. (Huge in my family as my mom had to convert to Judaism when she married my step-dad because it was important to him that his children be Jewish.)
