Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Ketubah Available on the Web

I am going to be getting married soon, which is something that I am very excited about, for the most part. But I am not really sure I am going to be happy to do some of the things that are going to be involved. My wife’s family is very strongly Jewish, and my family cares a lot less about the traditional beliefs and stuff. But we are going to do things their way. I am looking to buy Ketubahs online because they insist that we get a Ketubah before we get married. I do not see what the big deal is, but on the other hand, if it makes them happy, then it is not that big of a deal for me to go along with it.

Some of their family members are very traditional in their views and still believe that it is not proper for a man and his wife to sleep under the same roof if they do not have a Ketubah in place. That seems kind of ridiculous, but I am not really in the business of questioning anyone’s beliefs. Instead, I avoid trying to step on any toes and that sort of thing, because it is not fun to have people angry over stuff like this.

It is not that I have any problem with the traditional views, it is just that I don’t really think they are super relevant in the context modern society. But at the same time, maybe I just feel that way because I am not that religious of a person in the first place. My parents weren’t very religious, and that is probably part of the reason that I am not very religious myself, if not a large part of the reason. But I guess it doesn’t matter either way.
