Next week my niece is going to get married in Israel.
The last week of October my mother got the flu. Every day she called me and said: “If I go to the wedding I will die.” “That’s a pity,” I answered.
Finally my mother decided not to go to her granddaughter's wedding. Miraculously enough the next day she was feeling better.
I won’t attend the wedding either. It’s not my fault that my sister’s children have to get married first in order to have sex.
If that’s the price you have to pay for sex I would go for abstinence.
