I do want to respond to a particular comment on the Shalom Bayit blog: “Most of us have sought rebbinic authority in regards to our marriages, and have decided to stay married. That being said, most rabbis are delighted at the decision and that it is for them.”I’ve heard this theme before: “The rabbi just wants the couple to stay together.”
I will acknowledge that there are several reasons why a rabbi might be biased against divorce. . .
