“When a man takes a new wife, he shall not go out in the army, nor shall it obligate him for any matter. He shall remain free for his home for one year and delight his wife whom he has taken” Deuteronomy 24:5.

The first year of marriage serves as the foundation of the new Jewish home, and the couple’s time and energy should be devoted to nurturing their relationship
Any edifice is only as strong as the foundation which supports it. The first year of marriage serves as the foundation of the new Jewish home, and the couple’s time and energy should be devoted to nurturing their relationship. During this special year, both bride and groom are discouraged from engaging in any travel which involves an overnight stay away from each other.
