Thankfully I have Chabad for daily studies like this to feed me, I live on a mountain top with very little Jewish community around me. I am sorry I missed that perfected partnership, but so glad I now know who I am. I so love Shabbat. Being new all during the week I am learning more and my week is spent preparing for Shabbat.
Reply Anonymous dessau August 10, HE will make the right decision for me. One of the things i regret more than anything is having premarital relations. I was born a Jew but not raised and one and I didn't see the harm in a causal relationship. I regret it immensely. Not only did I have my heart stomped on but I was taken advantage of by my boyfriend. Intimacy in a marriage is a beautiful joining of souls with the promise of little blessings to come. Outside of a marriage, it is just gratification that can go horribly wrong.
You will never regret waiting but you will wish you had if you don't. Reply Show all comments.
