Are you asking about halacha or secular law?
To a court or to to a private party?April 18, 2012 6:24 pm at 6:24 pm in reply to: How To Take Control of Your Marriage #869511
Computer777: I am not divorced c’v. Yes, I can state from direct personal experience that this segula worked for me. Just as the above Seforim HaKedoshim said it would.
But forget my kovod. I am compelled to defend the kovod of Chachmei Yisroel following your shocking statement not only dismissing the holy words of our gedolim and poskim, four of which were quoted above, but that of you actually calling them fools! It is the Seforim Hakedoshim that say the Shechina is in such a home.April 17, 2012 9:34 pm at 9:34 pm in reply to: George Zimmerman #868269
Feeling threatened is NOT a justification to attack someone. Martin initiated a physical attack on Zimmerman and Zimmerman lawfully defended himself per Florida’s Stand Your Ground law.April 17, 2012 8:41 pm at 8:41 pm in reply to: George Zimmerman #868266
He was not looking for a fight. And carrying a gun is legal in Florida. He followed and watched Martin, he did not confront him. All of which is 100% legal. Police did not order Zimmerman to do, or not do, anything. A 911 operator (not police) *suggested* it “wasn’t necessary” to follow him. It was not an order. And in fact a 911 telephone operator cannot issue orders.
And Martin confronted Zimmerman.April 17, 2012 8:30 pm at 8:30 pm in reply to: Divorce: Whose Fault Was It? #932152
midwesterner: Rav Miller zt’l also said 99% of divorces were entirely avoidable and unnecessary.

Why, then, so frequently will a person take whatever opportunity to (usually subtly but sometimes even overtly) place blame on their ex-spouse for their failed marriage?April 17, 2012 2:29 pm at 2:29 pm in reply to: OPEN SHABBOS – KOSHER PIZZA #873796

Yaff: of course a wife follows her husband’s minhag on lighting candles, the same way she assumes all minhagim from her husband. I’m not sure why anyone would mistakenly think otherwise.April 17, 2012 3:55 am at 3:55 am in reply to: Lighting Extra Shabbos Lichts #959172
Does everyone tzind ah licht for every child?April 17, 2012 2:33 am at 2:33 am in reply to: Sheva Brochos Divrei Torah #867948
Thank you, folks. I might be mistaken for the Godol Hador after presenting this Divrei Brocho.

Treat them as well as you would treat any Yid you know.April 16, 2012 9:10 pm at 9:10 pm in reply to: Family Not Traveling Together #868089
That isn’t correct. Even if the reason air travel is safer than road travel is due to the lack of conditions necessary for a plane crash, that does not diminish the fact that air travel is statistically safer. It in fact streghnthens the point.April 16, 2012 8:44 pm at 8:44 pm in reply to: Does this exisit? #867671
What are examples of some common reasons a wife might refuse to accept a Get, whether the reason is justifiable or unjustifiable?April 16, 2012 6:15 pm at 6:15 pm in reply to: Who wants to be a Tzadaikes like Rus? #1180214
Health: When you tell me you would be willing to date an 80 year old woman if she could still have children, I’ll take you seriously.
That isn’t realistic. An 80 year old woman can’t have children. There’s no point in engaging in unrealistic hypotheticals.April 16, 2012 6:05 pm at 6:05 pm in reply to: George Zimmerman #868262
All of Zimmerman’s actions in following Martin prior to the confrontation, were entirely lawful.April 16, 2012 5:38 pm at 5:38 pm in reply to: Family Not Traveling Together #868087
me2: Even if you flew roundtrip commercial air every day, 5 days a week, your statistical risk is clearly lower than driving roundtrip, 5 days a week.April 16, 2012 2:44 pm at 2:44 pm in reply to: Who wants to be a Tzadaikes like Rus? #1180208
moi aussi: You are incorrect on both counts. Older men often do want children, as is their obligation or mitzvah (though it is even true often with non-Jewish men too.) And they are correct in seeking to quench their physical needs. The alternatives to that are much worse.April 16, 2012 2:38 pm at 2:38 pm in reply to: tuition and home buying #869128
besalel: That is a good, but impractical, solution. There is no way to enforce centralized billing (especially with those with no school-age children.)
fed ben fed: Please specifically explain what “poor choices” you refer to.April 16, 2012 2:31 pm at 2:31 pm in reply to: Family Not Traveling Together #868083
me2: YEARS have gone by without a single commercial air fatality in the US, let alone an entire plane crash c’v. The same, unfortunately, cannot be said regarding road travel. Its obvious the danger of all passengers in a car c’v perishing in a mishap is far greater than it happening in the air.April 15, 2012 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm in reply to: Listening To Non-Live Music On Sefira #1151853
” If you push people to always be moser nefesh, they will be “burnt out” when the real need to avoid the “Big 3″ arises.”

Sam4: So S”A prohibits adults from playing amateur sports?April 15, 2012 1:48 pm at 1:48 pm in reply to: Who wants to be a Tzadaikes like Rus? #1180191
Moi aussi The definition of an old man is irrelevant as long as the girl is over 12 (and thus not a yalda), since the only problem is for an old man to marry a girl under 12.
And even if you argue a girl has no chiyuv to get married, she most certainly has a tremendous mitvah to do so.April 15, 2012 1:23 pm at 1:23 pm in reply to: How To Take Control of Your Marriage #869497
Y’know, another boich svara you can come up with is that everyone MUST buy their loved ones a bar of choclate (if they like choclate) EVERY Erev Shabbos. Otherwise they are bad, since they are violating veohavto loreacho komocho and going against ” the most important tanna of the entire mishnaic era.” And no one dare say it is ever okay to not buy that choclate. Its such a good boich svara that you can even use it against any Achron who says otherwise, without needing any additional source.
In any event, this argument is about a davar pashut. The husband has always been the authority in the home. Even if he didnt put his foot down under the Chuppa. The seforim say as much without dissent. For a most recent source simply read the various seforim of Rav Avigdor Miller zt’l, who writes many times the husband is the Captain and the wife the First Mate who differs to the authority of the husband. (And the husband always takes the wifes opinion into account before making a decision.)
None of them provide any blanket heters.April 12, 2012 7:44 pm at 7:44 pm in reply to: George Zimmerman #868248
Florida’s Stand Your Groind statue allows the use of deadly force in response to great bodily harm, even if he does not fear his life is at risk.April 12, 2012 7:15 pm at 7:15 pm in reply to: Growing Old #1191089
Every day, expect that day to be your last. And act accordingly. Do teshuva. So say the Seforim HaKedoshim.April 12, 2012 7:10 pm at 7:10 pm in reply to: How To Take Control of Your Marriage #869487
I cannot believe what I am reading! How can Sam speak against the above Seforim HaKedoshim with such impunity??
And what about the “bechira” of a citizen to refuse to follow his King’s orders? Or a child’s bechira to refuse to have Kibud Av? Or the bechira of someone without legs to walk into a place of sin.

This remedy shouldn’t be publicized. It is given privately to the Choson at his Choson Shmooze.April 12, 2012 5:17 pm at 5:17 pm in reply to: Kallah Providing the Chosson a Dowry #867221
The more worthy the Choson, the higher the dowry. (Or a fancier wedding, as the case may be.)April 12, 2012 5:14 pm at 5:14 pm in reply to: The name Elka #867378
No one gives a child an English name at his Bris. We do for Yiddish names.April 12, 2012 5:07 pm at 5:07 pm in reply to: George Zimmerman #868236
Martin may have assaulted Zimmerman, leading Zimmerman to lawfully defend himself with lethal force under Florida’s Stand Your Ground statue.
The burden of proof lies with the prosecution. In the absence of such proof, Zimmerman remains totally innocent in the eyes of the law.

No, the Jews are the biggest tzadikim.April 11, 2012 11:14 pm at 11:14 pm in reply to: Davening Gemara #1017042
Mochoh – Are you seriously taainaing that there is no inherent kedusha in the words of the gemorah?!?! Why would you not need to make the Brochos in the morning before “laining” the gemora if you need a Brocho before laining the mishna?
