Brilliant! After I first got over the shock of marriage being articulated in a way that agrees with my soul, I relaxed and took in all that I myself was unable to articulate to any given potential husband - realizing my husband will naturally possess these qualities and willingly give to me. Reply

Yes :-) Wow! When he started with "love is not important" , I was enraged. But what he said next made perfect sense. Don't we all want to be important to our partners? Reply

Wow! This is one of the most powerful Torah teachings I have ever heard. Worth listening to over again. I say this as a non-Jew, a Noahide, who looks to God through His Torah and Israel. It is a blessing to dwell in the tents of Shem. ;) Thank you for sharing this. Reply

Absolutely Brilliant Rabbi Friedman, you have challenged me greatly with this discourse. At first, I found myself saying, "Hmm...this is interesting..." then, "What?!?!" But after I began to understand where you were taking this and set aside my preconceived notions, Rabbi, I shook my head over and over and said, "Wow, this is awesome." And I will share it with my friends and listen to it again and again. Thank you, B'H Reply
