Here's the scenario:

This year, my wife expected me to give her a huge diamond ring for her birthday. She didn't want any other gift.

I went to the jeweler, and request a 5 Karat Princess cut for my princess, but that size is back-ordered and he couldn't get it in time. My wife was really angry and told me to go to hell.

For the sake of Shalom Bayit, should I listen to her and really take her advice?

    I think the questions are degenerating. Just because it is Purim Torah should not give a license to ask any question. I think questions such as these are not appropriate. Commented Feb 19, 2015 at 21:34
  • @GershonGold - perhaps. Of course, the story is made up. You can vote to close. I have no problem with that.

    This question sounds a bit misogynist to me, and the Jewish connection is tenuous. I don't think it's quite close-worthy, but I did downvote.

She said hell, not Gehinnon. Precision is important.

She is telling you to go to Hell, CA and try one of these jewelers in hopes you will be able to obtain better service.

If you leave now you should be able to present your princess with her due before Shabbat.

  • Have you ever been in Hell, CA?

    I have not; everything I know about the place comes from the Internet. Surely I can rely on that, right? Commented Feb 19, 2015 at 20:55

She means go to hell, and from the fiery ovens forge her a ring. Not three rings.
Not two rings.
Just one ring.

One ring to rule them all!

  • @Yitzchak LOL :)

    That advice seems to "ring" a bell!

  • @DanF that will explain how whenever you want your wife, she's gone. She's put on the ring and gone invisible!

No. The Gemara (:פסחים פו) says כל מה שיאמר לך בעה"ב עשה חוץ מצא- you must listen to everything the Baal Habayis tells you except "Tze"- "Leave". And if your home is like any classic Jewish home, then you know your wife is the real boss. Thus, you don't have to go anywhere!
