One Response to “Ep. 230: What is the Rebbe’s View Regarding a Prenup?”

  1. m.l.

    Hello Rabbi Jacobson,
    You always give us some food for thoughts and this time I decided to give you feedback about your response on one of the questions:
    “How can I get beyond a past relationship and move toward marriage? ”
           Your answer is like a song where every word counts. Though it sounds simple but by touching this topic you are walking on the edge of the blade: few microns left and it might be hurtful for the person,- few microns right and it would become theoretical, aloof, without any connection to the reality.
    Once in my life I came across to a girl, very gifted, beautiful Jewish girl, who made her family to accept her girlfriend and their relationship as a matter of fact. I could watch how the family, very loving, Yiddishen family looked nice and pretty normal in the presence of this couple as they did’t want their girl to reject and disconnect from them.
    As a newcomer I could not tune in to this family “show”; smiling and making nice comments, I observed a situation where indifference about this girl’s future disguised in a dress of tolerance to the natural modern life style.
    If only anybody wanted to dissect the root of that situation!!!
     It’s pretty typical in our days, when a mother of the family becomes the only parent and a father as a role model does not exist at all, or plays a negative role in a girl’s life. Male’s negative role increases even more in case of molestation or abuse, the girl cuts down any possibility to be interesting in opposite sex.
    How our modern sophisticated society reacts on this situation?
    Family is busy with their own comfort, money, health problems and so on.
    Doctors, most of them psychologists and psychiatrists are happy to get them as their patients, not mentioning about pharmaceutical industry that needs  them to sale their products. Lowers welcome them for sharping same sex marriage law…
    Reform Rabbis would not find anything wrong in that situation…
    Who has interest in this girl to bring her back to normal marriage?! 
    Who would convince her to follow the manual of her design, where it says: “Yet, your craving shall be for your husband.”!
