In Israel you can get married only in one way -- the Jewish Orthodox way. Many Israelis want to get married in their way but can't! Join us if you want to ch...
First of all, each citizen in Israel is considered to be a part of a certain religion by the state, even that person doesn't identify as such, it goes by the parents because that's how Jewish law is. I am considered Jewish by the state even though I no longer consider myself Jewish.
Apart from the fact that civil marriage is banned, and that all the ceremonies have to be held by an orthodox rabbi to be valid, there are many other restrictions. Someone who isn't considered Jewish by the state can't get married to someone who is considered that, because Judaism banns interfaith marriage. Even if someone considers himself Jewish, and only his dad was Jewish, he can't marry another Jewish person in Israel. It follows all the old religious Jewish marriage rules. It's probably better explained here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marriage_in_Israel
Anyway, Israel is probably one of the worst country to be an atheist in. I'm going to get out of here soon!
Although I dont know all the details, I can tell you I just attended an orthodox wedding and it was not fun. At no time can the men and women dance together. The whole thing is very restricted. The men tried to grab me and make me dance with them but i did not feel comfortable and had to literally yank my arm out of the grasp of the Rabbi. Sarah I would be interested to know if all the weddings have to follow this format or is it only that they have to be married by an orthodox rabbi?
