Would we make a Shidduch with anyone from the Torah?

There's Avrohom Avinu: He seems to be frum but really he's a BT and his father made idols, not our

Yitzchak Avinu
: Well his grandfather made idols, there was all that nastiness with Lot and is half brother is an arab.

Yaakov Avinu: His great-grandfather made idols, his brother went off the derech, his mother comes from a very treyfe family and he wasn't shomer negiah with Rachel Imeinu before they were married and he spent a lot of time with his uncle, who's mammesh a rasha.

Yosef HaTzaddik
: His mother had an idol once and she died early, plus he's a slave and his brothers don't like him, must be something in that and with all the issues with Avraham Avinu and Yitzchak and Yaakov Avinu...better not to.

Moshe Rabbeinu:
Oy, what a maaseh!!!! His parents separated, then they got back together, his parents abandoned him, put him in a basket, he was raised by goyim...not our kind for sure. He may be close to Hashem but his background is so problematic , we wouldn't want him in OUR family!

Calev's descendants
: We don't want to marry into that family. Enough said.

Dovid HaMelech
: Descendants from a Geyoret, not our kind of people. Sure a few generations have gone by but all things being equal shouldn't we look for someone with more 'jewish' background.

Shlomo HaMelech
: See above, all his mother's marriage was very dubious, he is rich though but the yichus and family background is very tricky.

I can't help but laugh at how true this is, I think it really explains it well exactly how its done in many Jewish orthodox circles especially with how I grew up.
