And technically, I believe the standard was "Shomer Shabbos" (i.e., strictly observes the Sabbath), but I've never heard of anyone who was Shomer Shabbos but not kosher.

The basic standard that I was aware of is being shomer shabbos and keeping kosher. There are a lot of other factors that could invalidate witnesses for an Orthodox wedding. However, usually it is assumed that if they keep kosher and shabbos then they have met the other standards.

One of my former managers actually was shomer shabbos and kept all the holidays. My former manager's standards of kosher would not be considered up to Orthodox levels.

I have seen quite a few people in between. Some eat kosher at home, but not outside. Some will go to non-kosher restaurants and only eat salad or fish. Others keep kosher and shabbos and not the holidays. The mix is actually quite interesting.

I always assumed that the traditions people kept was sort of based on what was ingrained in their childhood.

True, or whatever they personally find meaning in. On the shabbos but not Kosher side, there are orthoprax people who keep shabbos on account of their spouses/children, but will eat non-kosher when they're alone.

I'm so glad I don't have to worry about any of this.

Dude you have no idea lol. This shit is super complicated. When you keep Kosher you have to plan your life around it.

Whenever we have a work function, the kosher food always looks better than the non-kosher food.

Whaaaat!?! We work at the same company and that is so not true!

We don't attend the same work functions though...
