    Interfaith marriages are increasingly commonplace around the world. Catholic priests Protestant ministers and Rabbis too regularly officiate at such unions. Even when they don't, religious couples who wish to marry "outside the faith", find tespectable ways to do so. Famously, the Catholic church preaches reactionary dogma on contraception and abortion: most of the faithful ignore those teachings. As you show, David, even in the British Queen's family, the kids found a way to make have their interfaith religious wedding in church, which even their mother, the Protector of the Faith, accepted. As for Baby Prince George, by the time he gets to the throne who knows where his trend will be. If his grandfather's experience is anything to go by, he will have considerably more freedom than anything an Israeli can expect. As a young man, the current heir to he throne, Prince Charles was required to marry a Protestant virgin". In middle age, he married his true love, a divorcee. Israel's state-imposed religious marriage laws are anachronistic. They run against the trend of the industrialized countries that Israel tries to emulate.
