Parshat Yitro

Parshat Yitro contains the most important piece in the narrative of the Jewish people, the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai, when the nation and God are ‘married.’ Curiously, before that story, we have two short stories about Yitro, Moses’s father-in-law, first when he throws a feast to celebrate the salvation, and then when he advises Moses to set up a court system. How do these stories relate to both Moses’s first meeting with Yitro and the marriage between the people and God?
