                                  Answer:
   
   According to post-Sinaitic Jewish law, a marriage can be contracted
   only between two Jews, so an intermarriage is not recognized as a
   Jewish marriage.
   
   In some countries, the progressive Jewish movements recognize civil
   marriages as Jewishly valid, irrespective of religion.
