What Should Be Written on Your Modern Ketubah
« on: Dec 11, 2012, 04:15AM »
Written in Aramaic (the colloquial and legal form of Hebrew at the time the ketubah was developed) and signed by two witnesses prior to the wedding, a traditional ketubah outlines the groom's obligations to his bride, and specifies a certain amount of property that the groom brings the marriage, along with an equal amount of property from the bride's family, that now belongs to the bride. From the Talmud we learn that the intention of this document was to make it "more difficult" for a man to "put aside" his wife, and to ensure that if he did leave her she would have resources to survive.
