Sure mixed marriage are hard to accomplish in Israel. Although marriages entered into elsewhere are recognized. This simply isn't some action of the central government. All religious groups conduct their own marriages. It would seem easy enough for Christians to recognize mixed marriages since it doesn't cause the same sort of theological trouble as it does for Muslims and Jews. Of course baptisms would be a problem. The fact that no religious group will perform mixed marriages just can't be blamed on Jews. It's just illogical. What about sexual discrimination in orthodox shuls? Just move next door to the reformed shul, sit with your hubby and drive home afterwards! The government doesn't care. Drive home in Saudi Arabia and they'll cut your hands off!
