Rabbi Lawrence Kelemen
Why itÉportant to Talk About MarriageItà³¯ important for us to speak about how to date, how to get married, because ità³¯mething that our educational system has really abandoned, something that theyå ©gnored. In the high school textbooks, the little bit of information we get about dating and marriage is all about how to stay physically healthy during dating and marriage. Youì ¦ind a lot of material about venereal disease and how to avoid it, but not necessarily information about how to make a relationship go ì©£kÔ¨e people who teach those courses, theyå µsually gym teachers who are saddled with one extra responsibility, who donà²¥ally know anything about relationships. And all the information they can give over is whatà©® the text, which is skeletal at best. Ità¶¥ry, very important for people to seek out expert advice.
Letà³´art then from the beginning. How does a person know when he or she is ready to get married?
Iå ¦ound that these Orthodox Jews, they have an unusual definition of love. And their definition of love completely alters their definition of marriage, meaning that their definition of love and marriage is not like our mainstream Western definition of love and marriage. Iì ¥xplain.
Love as GivingThereà¡ Hebrew word which is often translated as ï¶¥É´ is the Hebrew word for love, but I donà´¨ink it means the same thing that we in the West mean when we say ï¶¥Ô¨e Hebrew word is ahava. Ahava isä¨¥ word hav conjugated. Hav means ï §ivehav is à·©ll givehava is the state of à·©ll givenessÍŠ
