In another Aish.com video (http://www.aish.com/literacy/concepts/Why_Not_Intermarry$1.asp) by Minister of Information Becher, he cries and whines about intermarriage to a nonorthodox but jewish audience. What he does not say is that, you can't become involved with someone orthodox if you are not orthodox yourself.
If you are not orthodox, Minister of Information Becher wants to boss around who you can and cannot marry, and as a religious rule, orthodox jews don't get romantically involved with nonorthodox jews. In other words, "You can only marry with other Jews, but us Jews are more equal than the rest of the Jews and we are too good for you."
Again in other words, when it comes to dating and marriage, nonorthodox jews or people who don't follow their lifestyle and beliefs 100%, are just as gentile as the gentiles.
There is a very good reason for avoiding having an orthodox spouse. For example, let us say I am married to an orthodox woman and I get bored on Shabbat, I'm gonna play a computer game because I like computer games. What will the orthodox woman do? Cry and rant that I am a sinner and say that I should stop or be issued a demand for divorce. Get the picture? I don't need a marriage ruined over a damn computer game, and I am sure you don't need your marriage ruined over something you like to do for fun. Shabbat is the only rest day I have ever heard of in which you can't do anything you want for fun and you have to dress formally for it.
Orthodox Judaism is way too strict for an all or nothing deal. Stay away from them if you want a happy marriage.
I would like to make a comment about divorce rates in orthodox judaism ... because women are not allowed to issue divorces in orthodox judaism and orthodox men sometimes refuse to give gets ... the "small" divorce rate in orthodox judaism is rigged. If women were allowed to divorce in orthodox judaism, their divorce rate would be higher.
