Er, How "Traditional" is a Mixed-Marriage

Dear Readers,

I once posted a few items on mixed-marriages. I don't really think positively about them but hey, everyone is free to make his own choices, mistakes or errors.

But this caught my eye simply as a philosophical semantic question:-

July 22, 2007
Deborah Elizabeth Bernstein, the daughter of Constance Bernstein and Dr. Kenneth Bernstein of Needham, Mass., is to be married today to David William Foster, a son of Nancy and William Foster of Signal Mountain, Tenn. The Rev. Garnett Foster, a Presbyterian minister and an aunt of the bridegroom, is to perform a ceremony incorporating Jewish and Christian traditions at the Rollins Chapel at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H.

If we're relating to "tradition", just how traditional are mixed-marriages?

And here's another:-

Barbara Ann Huscher and Steven H. Cohen were married on Thursday evening at Pine Manor College in Chestnut Hill, Mass. The Rev. Dr. Thomas Gallen, a Methodist minister, officiated, and Rabbi Devon A. Lerner took part in the interfaith ceremony.

Google "Rabbi Devon A. Lerner". It seems like she specializes in this kind of stuff.
