comment Does someone not fasting still try their best?
There may be differences on different fasts and differences depending on each individual. This question is one that should be asked of ones Rabbi.

comment War, Pray and Learn
I am not sure how it is possible that Dovid HaMelech instituted this as the Milchemes Midyan was before the time of King David.

comment How old was Pharaoh relative to Moses?
According to this link Pharaoh was 40 when he made his birthday party and Yosef was released from prison. If Vayokom Melech Chodosh means that he made new laws, and it was the same Pharaoh then Pharaoh would be 259 years old at the time the Jews exited Egypt. Since Yosef was 30 when he went in front of Pharaoh, and Yaakov arrived 9 years later when Yosef was 39 and the Jews remained in Egypt for 210 years.

comment Good idea to fast on the day of conversion?
@DoubleAA: Interesting. Perhaps that is why not all do so, as he clearly says that there are "some".

comment When is a Yartziet Observed?
@DoubleAA: I agree the article did not state it is an obligation, however one could infer from the way the answer is presented here that it is something that is done, to which I commented.

To the best of my knowledge, Orthodox Jews do not observe any Yarzheit for a stillborn death.

comment Olam Haba depends on how you treat your wife
כתב ר חיים ויטל: וכמעט שאין שום מקום ואפשרות אחרת, שיוכל האדם כל כך לתקן מדותיו ולהשלים עצמו, (אלא) על ידי ביתו והתנהגותו שם. ולכל אחד ואחד מזמן השם יתברך את האשה הראויה והמתאימה לו, להשלים את עצמו". (תחילת שערי קדושה)
