March Mitzvot Madness Day 11
Now here’s an interesting issue that modern society certainly doesn’t follow! Adonai provides an exemption for newly married men from serving in the military and other public service obligations for their first year of marriage. If governments adhered to this command it might strengthen some marriages that don’t get a chance to start on solid footing.
If a man has recently married his wife, he is not to be subject to military service; he is to be free of external obligations and left at home for one year to make his new wife happy. ~~ Deuteronomy 24: 5
