By the same token, Mormons, who encourage early nuptials, are the least likely faith to outmarry.In fact, in a chart drawn by Milton Gordon in his book (1964), Jews are listed along with “Negroes” as having virtually no “marital assimilation,” as he called it.The leadership and the masses of American Jews were preoccupied with breaking down any barriers to complete assimilation.“It doesn’t mean that anti-Semitism is over, but there’s much more philo-Semitism than anti-Semitism in America.”Riley says intermarriage is both a cause and effect of this phenomenon.“The more you have exposure to people of other faiths, the more likely you are to like them and then marry them yourself,” she said.
