How Much Experience Do You Need Before Marriage?

Some well-meaning folk believe that a little bit of experience in romantic relationships is a good preparation for marriage. The Torah teaches that it’s the single worst possible preparation. (“Parsha Perks” with Dr Michael Chighel | Chayei Sarah)

Great entertainment, but the argument is not very convincing. I still have doubts. We need to equate both sides of it properly and to see which is the most satisfactory. Reply

Racist a bit? I agree with the general sentiment of this message, but, am a bit put off by the stereotypical accenture and nod to
hedonism. Not all Greeks or even Thelemists are hedonists. Many people who fall in both categories don’t even have sex. Jews generally want to act as though only we understand sexual purity because of Niddah, but even Talmud and Zohar talk about biblical and rabbinical permissions for unnatural acts. Can’t we say that the Greek, the Jew, and the Christian, all at their best recognize a need for connection to a partner in sex, with virginity being ideal and a period of abstention as a couple learns to value one another in cars where worldly views got in the way with a focus on redemption? It can trend too sexist at times, to teach a girl her equipment is like a stick of gum that got “chewed” as some Christians do, especially in cases of rape and incest. Purity is an original decision, and then a renewed decision after “anything” happens to destroy God’s best plan, yes? Reply
