Jewish Marriage


Marriage is highly revered and strongly encouraged in Judaism. Except in ascetic groups like the Essenes, the celibate life has never been considered more holy than the married life. In fact, one must be married in order to become a rabbi. A high view of marriage derives from certain Jewish beliefs that the home and family are the center of religious life.
