Friday Repost: Bad Shidduch Advice

Orthodox Jewish culture is very much about gaming the system. Our legalistic religion encourages us to skate close to the edge of the loopholes we can find, so we’re always looking for them. Everywhere. Be it the US tax code or the shidduch system. Somehow, we always feel the need to figure out the system and then one-up it.

Well, I’m not playing.
