FI and I are christian. Fiance's mom's family is jewish. I decided to incorporate the breaking of the glass in our ceremony and the horah at the reception to honor his mom's family. They mentioned that they would be honored if we did that.
My mom is PISSED and brought up that I am a christian and that I am swaying to his family. REALLY? Because of breaking a dang glass and doing 1 jewish dance? I explained to her that the breaking of the glass has many meanings but that a few is that the couple is coming together and making a new home. That doesn't seem too "jewish" as if it would be offensive.
Why can't we all get along? I just thought it would be nice for his family. I need a drink right now, lol.
