comment A wife wants to stop going to the mikva. What does that mean for the husband?
Note too that sleeping with a Niddah, being a Karet-level sexual offensive, is actually not to be preferred even on pain of death.

comment Is there any support for the claim that tekhelet and argaman could be derived from the same creature?
@Aaron So there's no need to open Greek.SE because every Greek question is on topic here already? (I'm well aware that Judaism doesn't exist in a vacuum. You don't need to keep trying to prove that to me.)

@Aaron How does that make asking for random non-Jewish sources on topic? Can I ask "Is it possible to dope Ca ions in an NaCl crystal to produce a vacancy defect?" on the off chance that that knowledge will help someone understand something Jewish?

comment Why are there different intro. prayers for calling the Kohen aliyah on Shabbat vs. weekday?
"there is no need to" is there a problem in saying it that we had to compose a whole new prayer to say instead?

comment Is marriage without ketubah considered marriage, concubinage, or kiddushin she’einah re’uyah le’biah (marriage that cannot be consummated)?
"it would be kiddushin she’einah re’uyah le’biah" Really? So Rava would Pasul the Kiddushin MiDeoraita??

comment Witnesses and the Ketubah
@DanF The Ketubah is not a marriage. It doesn't make you married. It's just there to assure the wife that she gets her rights (even though she would get them all without the document too).

comment Is Exercise on Shabbos Allowed?
@yydl "People who ask questions they don't know an answer to are naturally motivated to put as much detail and motivation as possible into the question, to help others give answers that are as helpful as possible. People who already know an answer, by contrast, are much more likely to post just enough of a question to serve as a set-up, in their own heads, to the answer they know." I wouldn't want to make any upvoted answers obsolete, of course, but if you can come up with any subtle ways of improving the question, they'll always be appreciated :)

comment Is Exercise on Shabbos Allowed?
Can you indicate why you might think it would be permitted or prohibited, or why you thought to ask this? What avenues of research have you attempted already? What did you find?
