Sad, very sad. The girl needs major counseling. She’s a rachmonus; her past is not enviable. Seems like people have taken the bait and missed the point – she’s suffered tremendous trauma. A poor soul indeed.
Corn on the cob is kosher. It’s just those little bugs that burrow their way under the kernels so you can’t see them that are the problem.
In our house, my wife is “The Rav”. (That doesn’t make me a Rebbetzin, mind you.)
If people would work on their marriage, they wouldn’t have to worry about divorce.
“Paint a message on a blimp.”
Can’t do that if that blimp is the girl you’re going to marry.
That’s ossur; negi’ah.March 3, 2011 11:13 pm at 11:13 pm in reply to: Did anybody see the anti-semetic Christian Dior designer? #746730
I’m refusing to wear my designer tzitzis anymore. Going back to the old regular woolen beged.
Was it the right sock or the left?
Very sad; 50 comments and everybody missed the boat!!
Read the Rambam – he writes exactly how a husband must treat his wife and exactly how a wife must treat her husband.
Then, do something no one does – read your kesubah and look in Shulchan Aruch to find out what each of you are obligated to do for your spouse and what your spouse can demand of you al pi Torah.
Instead of all these soap opera advice givers, try learning the Torah hashkofo.
Every soul that enters this world has a zivug. Just have to look for it and not get caught up with narishkeit.
Pumper, you’re correct. Agent Orange is a defoliant, not an exfoliant. See how this thread led to an increase in knowledge?
Pumper, first thanks for the tips. Second, it’s “Ralphie” not
“Ralpie”. And you are correct, I’ve never had a manicure but, even without knowing the joy of having my toenails painted, exfoliate sounds like something they sprayed on jungles in Vietnam – stay away from it. One thing I can say for sure, you’ve only increased my kavanah when reciting “shlo asanie isha”. Thanks!
“As a mother”?? Why cause unnecessary pain? If you’re going to check anyway, do it before they meet. Three or four dates is plenty of time to bond and then to find they’re incompatible is heartbreaking.
dunno, it’s probably best to keep your toes covered on shidduchim. Anyone who’s attracted to toes is not what you want. Put on a nice pair of shoes and look for a nice boy.
Pumper, wouldn’t it have been more tzniusdik to leave your tights on and cut holes by the toes?
Why not ask if he’s a Zaide because you can’t say “eventually”?
Perhaps the question should be “Who decides if it will be a home birth, husband or wife?”
delyezooger – your shvigger was waiting up to ding on you for NOT calling. This way she could say “I stayed up all night and you didn’t call”. Don’t you understand the mind of a shvigger? Seriously, tell them whenever you want. There is an inyan to wait until she’s nikkur but, if she wants support or advice, there’s no reason not to tell her mother or mother-in-law (if she’s got a good relationship, not if she feels she HAS to tell them).
Not true – the neshama was created as one. Then it split into the male and female parts only to be reunited upon marriage. That’s the comfort zone feeling upon finding your beshert. Kabbalah speaks at length about how both began as one and separated – it creates an energy to reunite (much like pulling a rubber band apart, it comes together with a greater force than if it was resting on a table).
This is The Plan – no infatuation ‘falling in love’ like Hollywood portrays. And, by the way, couples not zoche to have children or who wait years before children come can have great love for each other.
about 4:30 a.m. Tell them you were soooo excited. That way you get to wake up the shvigger – and she’ll thank you for it!!
Rockland Kosher but be careful, the corn has ears and the potatoes have eyes.
No, they’re two parts of the same soul.
oomis1105 – you’re referring to the Malbim’s p’shat on v’ahavta l’reicha k’mocha. Fine. My point was ‘falling in love’ is not a Jewish concept.
Tzvi Hirsch wrote that love comes after babies. This too is not a Jewish concept. The Rambam’s chiyuv for a husband to love his wife comes from the second he places that ring on her finger. Of course, after 30 years of marriage their love is different than after 3 weeks – but he is m’chuyav to love her.
He must also love his wife before having children or they will be ba’alei p’gam – 9 middos.
Does one fall in love when he is m’kayim “Love thy neighbor as thy self”? Learn the meforshim before commenting on Yaakov’s love for Rachol. Understand R’ Elimelech’s “what love means” with the two drunks, Rav Dessler’s Michtav M’Eliyahu and others.
Read “I Only Want to Get Married Once” by Chana Levitan or “Together We Are One – Making Marriage Work” by Eliezer Medwed to see what infatuation is and, conversely, what love is. They are NOT the same.
What is this, a Dear Abby column?
70 denier nylons. No better present than to teach a young girl the importance of tzniyus.December 28, 2010 6:36 am at 6:36 am in reply to: Should The Wife Have Total Control Of The Home Internet? #973295
Connect every computer to a second, large screen on the house facing the street. That way all the neighbors will see what he’s watching. They’ll tell his wife, don’t worry.
Or, you could hook up a helmet when the computer goes on – sensitive enough to feel a human. As soon as he looks at shmutz, ZAP, electrodes in the helmet zap him good – she’ll hear his scream and come running. This way, he stays out of trouble and she can remain calmly in the kitchen baking or ironing etc.
Only in self-defense.
Your question is about as nebulous as it gets. What is inappropriate’ – Taking a towel from the Holiday Inn or running over someone?
Did you have something specific in mind.
I grabbed the most religious name in Webster’s. What difference does it make? What’s your point?
real-brisker, thanks for the Dear Abby answer.
If the boss says anything to a woman – justified or not – he immediately gets sued. If he says something to you, you get back to work.December 17, 2010 1:34 am at 1:34 am in reply to: Did Anyone in the CR have arthroscopic knee surgery? #718338
Don’t let them touch you! You’ll never be done with them. Orthopedic surgeons are the worst, deadliest ‘doctors’ around. They hack and cut… I’ve had 8 knee operations; open as well as arthroscopic and today I cannot walk. Every open knee surgery I underwent they stopped doing because rather than helping, it destroys the knees.
Try Chiropractic, acupunture, leeches, Eli Strauss diet, excercise, tummeric, MSM, Glucosimine Sulfate and, if you can find a kosher one, Chondroitin.
STAY AWAY FROM THE HACKERS. Remember, Orthopedic surgeons make money by operating. Every surgery is a windfall. I personally know of one very successful Orthopedic surgeon who stated that he made millions performing unnecessary knee operations. He became a BT and stopped…
