Best answer: The globe doesn't offer citizenship, therefore you are not a global citizen. Do you not pay taxes to any government? Do you not follow the laws of where you reside? You don't pay taxes to the globe, and you don't follow laws the globe made. Also, you should have talked with your wife about this issue before making her your wife. In my point of view, you have no right to tell her not to raise the kids Jewish. She's Jewish, and it sounds like you're probably Jewish but for some reason are rejecting that identity. Unless you made these views and feelings known to her previously, she had every right to assume the kids she had would be raised Jewish. You've gone off the deep end and decided to have some very radical views and beliefs, not her. She's keeping with tradition and behaving exactly as you'd expect a Jewish woman to behave. It's you who's acting very differently. So you expect her to give up all she holds dear for you? smh. Self-centered much? Also, it's natural for humans to be tribal. Tribalism is how we've survived. Because of our intelligence, we tend to have a lot of different thoughts and opinions. So we are separated. We are not like a swarm of gnats or like an army of ants. We are individuals. But we recognize the need to be together to keep the species going, to stay alive. So we join with those who share our common values. That has helped protect us against some others who don't share our commonality, and might want to come and raid our village. (in times past.) Today, this tribalism is still at play, and is still for the most part very beneficial. It helps build a tight family community in which to raise children. It helps to encourage everyone to make their part of the world a better place. Do you really feel that you should be as connected to a random person in Polynesia as you are to your neighbor? Of course we have our differences. It doesn't mean we hate one another, it just means there are differences. Random people thousands of miles away don't feel close to or connected with us, and neither do we feel close to or connected to them. We have entirely different cultures, views, and sometimes even values. And most significantly, we have differences in geography. How can you feel close to people you will never meet and who are thousands of miles away? This global citizen thing is b/s. I suggest you and your wife embrace your commonalities. You obviously have many, or else you would not have fallen in love. What you do have in common, is what will shape your child the most. As for her raising the kids to be Jewish, you have absolutely no right to expect her to not do that. If you felt they shouldn't be raised Jewish, you should have told her before you married her. I suspect she never would have accepted your offer of marriage if you had made your feelings known about this from the get-go. Is that why you didn't previously discuss this with her?
