I leave the rest to the reader’s imagination.

A seasoned texter

Bluntly stated, it didn’t begin with texting…

Dear Rachel,

While I can appreciate where “Hurting for my friend” is coming from when she warns us of the hazards of texting, I believe she’s lost sight of the crux of the problem. Couples (emphasis on the plural) vacationing together and mingling, especially in a getaway setting, is asking for trouble in the first place.

Needless to say, I don’t refer to the secular society that doesn’t play by the same rules and principles that apply to the Torah-observant Jew. Readers can roll their eyes all they want but halacha cannot be argued with. And halacha says that a married woman is not to initiate contact with a male or vice-versa (other than next of kin) in the type of friendly or casual manner that may lead to over-familiarity and can conceivably generate an unhealthy chemistry between them.

We are all human

Rachel
