A friend of mine who also is a rabbi was having a discussion on FB with some folks about Jewish law regarding something specific. The question of sex came up in the context. His response started out with " In the eyes of Jewish law conjugal pleasure is synonymous with marriage..."
First I cried. Then I laughed. I don't even have a marriage! I have a brother, a roommate, a business partner. I knew this already but sometimes it hits anew.
Got another one for you. This was about 5 years ago.
Our dog, not the sharpest tool in the shed, suddenly became very twitchy and restless. To the highly annoying stage. Barking, running about in an agitated state and altogether irritating. "Will you shut that effen dog up !!" says Ms enna (who was trying to study) at the time. But the dog would not be mollified. Then, a bit later, the earthquake hit. It was not a big deal, the epicentre was some miles away, and the little bit of shaking was nothing real dramatic.
So the problem as we saw it at the time was the dog being neurotic. And that was not the problem at all.
Like the canary giving the miners a heads up that something is badly amiss in the mine. Like the oil pressure gauge is giving you a heads up that something is badly amiss in the engine. Like the paucity of sex in an ILIASM shithole is giving you a heads up that something is badly amiss in the marriage.
Now one might consider in these cases that the problem is - - a dud canary - a dud oil pressure gauge - a dud dog And whereas these examples are most definitely visible symptoms, they are not the diagnosis, they are not the problem.
I will add another analogy: Sex is the oil that helps keep the marriage engine running. As long as the oil is there, along with basic maintenance, the engine should purr along. If it runs low, the engine may require some additional maintenance along with replenishing the oil, and things can get back to normal. But when the engine runs on little to no oil for too long, it gets irreparably damaged. And all the oil in the world can no longer fix it.
handy: Cutiecakes, I see you posted on another forum. How about copying that other post and place it here. It hase some very relevant information and I think this forum will be of more help.
