    This does not apply if davening at the same speed as everyone else will cause one to slur words together or, even worse, skip them completely. As such, this unfortunately does not apply to many kehillos today and one is required to daven a longer S”E.

    I don’t know about working behind the counter, but I definitely wouldn’t date someone who uses hashtags. #justsaying

    That being said, I don’t think it shows a lack of intelligence. Could be he needed the money and took what he can get. Might depend on how long he’s been there for. If it’s been a while then you might wonder why he hasn’t tried to move on to something better.

    PBA… what? The global average is about 50/50 (actually, 107 boys to every 100 girls). Why is it so unreasonable to assume it’s around the same for Jews?

    charliehall,

    Why do you need the male/female breakdown? Just assume it’s 50/50. The point is that the later the year, the more kids.

    hakohen53,

    You can’t rely on not seeing dairy ingredients to assume that they’re just DE. Unfortunately, many people (I’m not directing this at you) think they know enough about how every ingredient is processed to tell you it’s pareve, but they really don’t. The only way to know an OU-D product is OU-DE is if OU tells you so themselves.

    Bookworm,

    Those are probably the right books. Many Jewish (and I’ve heard non-Jewish) schools use them as English textbooks.

    Remember, you can still spend the money at a small business on something you need, and then give the $10 you saved to tzedakah.

    iknow,

    You mean Ohr Sameach. “I’m in Ohr Sameach but I’m not a bt.”

    the-art-of-moi,

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with using a translated siddur! It can increase your kavanah and enhance your davening tremendously. That girl doesn’t know what she’s talking about and she should learn to think before she speaks. Don’t get caught up in everything people say. Just nod and move on in life.

    There are so many guys who went through the same thing you did! You’re definitely not alone in this, so you don’t have to worry about that.

    Torah, no way! The wife usually doesn’t eat much of the food she prepares, and if that’s enough to make her fat then I would stay far away. A fat husband means that it’s good food but he just eats too much, for good reason!

    Sam2, yes there are water fountains which have electric buttons. When they are unplugged no water will come out. They’re not so common as of the time of this writing, but they do exist and can be a problem!

    Why make them electric? I don’t know.

    WIY,

    Why is this question only for the recently married? Wouldn’t you also (if not exclusively) want opinions of those in their long, healthy and successful marriage?

    Or maybe it should be “To The Recently Divorced:” Then you can ask if there was something that should have been discussed 😉

    ShalomToYou, I don’t know what you’re talking about. Ever seen the proofs as to whether “oh” or “oi” is correct? Spoiler alert: The proofs for “oh” are much more convincing.

    Anyway, the rabonim (might’ve been the Moetzes, but I don’t remember) decided many years ago that both havaros are fine.

    You’re right about the Adi problem. That’s definitely not how it’s pronounced.

    To be fair, they say that 4 credit classes could take 12-14 hours per week of studying. So an hour a day isn’t unheard of, especially for advanced mathematics. Keep studying and good luck!

    Sure, there are quite a few. I don’t claim to know half of them, and I don’t feel comfortable just saying the few that come to mind. If you ask around (think of someone who’s “holding” in these things) you’re sure to get a nice list.

    If you’re looking for guys serious in both learning and earning a parnassah, I would advise you to look for yeshiva/college guys. Going to college as preparation for getting a job eventually is more widely accepted among serious learners than having a job before getting married. They’ll want to learn for a year or two, but they believe their role as a husband ultimately is to be the earner. I’m not saying that serious learners/workers don’t exist, but if you’re having trouble finding them, this may be a solution 🙂

    (Ner Yisrael has some yeshiva/college guys, but I don’t think you’ll find guys there who are working. I don’t know who to contact there, sorry.)

    Sons are more desirable because if we had more boys, there wouldn’t be a shidduch crisis. See? The Gemara is relevant for all generations.

    Think of how it’s going to be able to compete with the already existing magazines and newspapers. What better features are you going to offer? Will it be cheaper? How do you plan on getting it off the ground? Is this just some way for you to make money, or do you have a passion for making this frum magazine? Why?

    Oh yeah, try to cater to a wide range of “frum” people. Not just your type of people.

    apushutayid, that’s a nice story, but it can only be done by certain people. If you’re 75 years old, and the people talking are in their 30’s, then asking them to please stop would be very helpful. If you’re 18…not so much.

    I think age is the deciding factor here. Sometimes there’s just nothing you can do.

    Veltz Meshugener, I like what you said, but I just want to clarify something for other people. There is no Ner Yisrael Band. Some bachurim who know how to play an instrument may get together and practice (and even play at yeshiva events), but it is not affiliated with the Yeshiva at all.

    @mommamia22, I’ve never heard of a “garush” before. The halachos of a divorcee (gerusha) would only apply to a woman. There wouldn’t be any halachic difference between a bachur and a divorced man, to my knowledge.

    The “Shadchan” you are talking about should probably be the boy’s 8th grade rebbi. Over the year he observes what kind of bachur he is, and with his vast knowledge of Yeshivas he has a good chance of knowing just the right one.

    If he’s not a troubled teen, B”H, then he should have a rebbi he can consult regarding this.

    Hatzlocha!
