That sounds very broad. Wouldn't it depend a great deal on the particular people involved? –  Isaac Moses Feb 21 '12 at 3:01

Indeed, this is a topic that Rabbi's have built their careers around. From the FAQ: "Your questions should be reasonably scoped. If you can imagine an entire book that answers your question, you’re asking too much." –  HodofHod Feb 21 '12 at 3:35

Well I am looking for a few quick pointers when you meet or know a fellow who is contemplating intermarriage. –  Gershon Gold Feb 21 '12 at 17:36
    
@GershonGold Speak frankly with them, and from the heart. Anything else won't be effective since they are being motivated by the heart in the first place. –  avi Feb 21 '12 at 18:16
