A Reader Asks:
I was blessed to grow up in a warm, loving, and healthy home. My parents provided the paradigm of marriage that I aspire to emulate, and my image of the woman I’m looking to marry incorporates many traits I’ve seen in my mother. I respect her intellectual curiosity and deep emotional intuition, as well as her humility and quiet confidence. She’s a multi-tasker who seems to be able to “do it all” with grace, warmth, and calm. Beyond her full-time work, running a home, and raising children, she’s always made her relationship with G-d and contributions to the community a central part of her life.
