Some stupid woman was ranting on and on about how she's got to marry a Jewish man because she's a Jew... And she made the statement that "Jew men who marry non-Jews will be punished by God"
So I'm wondering if she was just being a bitch - as she was with just about everything she said. Or if this is a real teaching...

I had a Jewish co-worker who believed she had to marry a Jew to keep the bloodline pure, she said it was a "Jewish thing," she never mentioned anything about a spiritual consequence though.

It seems that it depends on what kind of Judaism they follow--I have a friend delayed his marriage to convert--in part because it would make the marriage more "acceptable" to her family (Conservative Judaism), but we have some Recon and Reform Jewish interfaith couples at our UUF as well.
"Traditional Judaism does not permit interfaith marriages. The Torah states that the children of such marriages would be lost to Judaism (Deut. 7:3-4), and experience has shown the truth of this passage all too well." source
