Their union has always been threatened by discord, a spirit of domination, infidelity, jealousy, and conflicts that can escalate into hatred and separation.
This disorder can manifest itself more or less acutely, and can be more or less overcome according to the circumstances of cultures, eras, and individuals, but it does seem to have a universal character.
Since I had kids my cycle is irregular, which wouldn't be a big deal except that I'm an Orthodox Jew and I can't even pass the salt to my husband — let alone touch, kiss, or have sex with him — for 12 days after my period starts.
We never know when we'll have to sleep in separate beds or place a vase with a single rose between us on the dinner table as evidence of our separation. Religion is hard, which is why so many people don't practice it. I emerge, and the mikvah attendant says, "Kosher."I dunk a second time, a third time.
He did not request her to don a long skirt and shawl, as tens of thousands of ardent feminists do every year upon entering St. Let's say after signing a brokerage agreement the letter writer had noticed that the broker, an Orthodox woman, was wearing a wig.
And let us say that she considered the halacha that a woman, but not a man, must cover her hair "offensive" and denigrating to women.
The real-estate agent, after all, did not ask anything of the woman. (Presumably she had no interest in holding his hand.) At most, he engaged in a form of symbolic speech, the message of which both the letter writer and Ethicist misunderstood.The Ethicist, one Randy Cohen, told her that she was entitled to work with someone "who will treat you with the dignity and respect he shows his male clients." He deemed it irrelevant that the agent was acting in accord with his deepest religious beliefs: "Sexism is sexism, even when motivated by religious convictions." Cohen agreed that the action was "offensive" -- nothing less than an attempt to "render a class of people untouchable" ― and calling it religious "doesn't make it right." For good measure, he cited the US Supreme Court's ruling in Brown vs.Board of Education that separate educational facilities for black and white students are inherently unequal.There's no blessing over sex, but every time I go to the mikvah I think about all the Hebrew blessings: the one for the first time you see the ocean, the one for overcoming danger, the blessing for a major purchase (a house, a car, an Armani suit).There are blessings for rainbows, lightning, mountains, truly ugly or beautiful people.
