comment Kosher accommodations in out-of-the-way US places
I have stayed at out-of-the-way interstate-exit motels with free breakfast and EVERY SINGLE THING WAS KOSHER! Bagels, cold cereal, hot cereal, jam, etc. I just asked them to show me the packaging and I was amazed!

comment Is the observance of Jewish law/tradition “all or nothing”?
If you are asking about halacha, "going to temple" is not really a part of Shabbat observance. There is an obligation to pray together with 10 men every day, 3 times a day, not especially on Shabbat. Also it's important to note that it's better to pray alone at home than to go to temple / synagogue in a way that violates Shabbat, for example by driving.

comment Nudity at home?
As for not seeing any part of your wife, ever, that any other strange man would be allowed to see, that seems way beyond the halacha to me. Especially in our times when most men see other women (at work and on the street) that are not dressed according to halachic standards, for him not to be able to see his own wife's body could have shalom bayis implications. Definitely an individual shaila

comment Nudity at home?
There may be a distinction between "seeing naked" and "seeking genatalia". Because of the fact that a woman's genatalia are hidden even when she is naked (as long as she is standing up), a fact which is even referenced in halacha, it may be permissible to look at your wife naked, even according to the opinion that looking at her genatalia is forbidden. That being said, it's not universal among the poskim that looking at her genatalia is forbidden

"there's a great deal of prohibition about having marital relations when there's light in the room"... not sure what you mean by a "great deal", esp considering there are poskim who disagree.

comment Does it make logical sense to “not hold by OU kashrus”?
@Dan, no I mean logical... if they hold of Star-K but not OU, but when they are using a Star-K product it contains OU ingredients, then they are not really avoiding OU, are they?

comment Avoiding accidentally eating cheese
Seems rather overboard to avoid something that is only a minhag... esp since the rama paskens to wait 1 hour
