When making shidduchim for a young lady, the shadchan should first ascertain whether or not the girl’s parents will agree to provide monetary support for the couple. After this is established, the boy has every right to investigate the future shviger’s ability to make a cholent as good as HIS mother’s, because after all, that is most likely the type of cholent his future wife will be making, which if it is REALLY good, she might consider selling, to make some extra money.
I believe I have covered all the topics mentioned.
I believe you have!!!!
I really believe making cholent is the husbands job. If a guy can’t make a decent cholent, he probably isn’t worth the shadchanus that was paid for roping him in.
SYAG – LOL!!!! As long as my hubs will wash the cholent pot, I am perfectly content to make its contents myself!
can the shadchan be paid with chulent? would it matter if it was served in a fancy candy dish?
APY – 🙂
I actually made 12 shidduchim and got 12 candy dishes which I was thrilled to use for my chulent dishes since I couldn’t afford china.
(now watch someone decide we are making fun of shadchanim and not ourselves – sigh)
APY and SYAG – 🙂
Actually, cholent is the one dish that is just as likely to be made by a man or the whole family.
ok this thread really made me grin 🙂
Me too, SaysM.
As my kids used to say to each other endlessly, “You started it!”
Golfer – it was my pleasure!!!!!! And my sibs ALWAYS started it, when we were kids. You should see what we do now (we write silly poetry back and forth to each other).
The opening poster did not cover all the topics mentioned, as she omitted to explain how the other topics apply to a golfer. Maybe that is because, for golfers, the most important things are their putts.
