Weddings in next few weeks
« on: March 15, 2020, 08:48:49 PM »
Are people pushing off wedding or hope for the best? I have a close wedding in two weeks and getting nervous of what rules might be in place at the time...

Oh what a burning and common concern. So far people just hoping for the best. VERY difficult to push off.

I know of a wedding that was supposed to take place tomorrow, till the chosson’s sister tested positive and landed them into quarantine.

Here is a bit of Hashgacha Pratis,

I made a reservation for the trip to a wedding and when I received the invitation, I was somewhat disappointed to see that Shabbos would end two hours after the wedding was scheduled.  I figured, I would get there in time for the dessert (inasmuch as the catered food was likely to be prepared on Shabbos and I would be unable to eat food cooked on Shabbos) and at least greet the happily married couple which is a mitzvah.  I did offer to arrange a "local" chuppah for those who could not make it!

The wedding has been postponed and although I was intent on using my reservation to visit my elderly father, I have now heard that his residence is on lockdown and most likely would not allow me to visit my Dad!

Could it be that HaShem did not want  the couple to begin their married life mechalel Shabbos? 

The reader is welcome to speculate and share their stories.

Seems to be what will happen with my cousin next week. 10 men, that's all.
I'm not who you think I am.

I think there are better ways for Hashem to do that, that don't involve the death of thousands

See how they did it in Merkaz Harav today. Was Beautiful. Everyone standing on balconies singing. If possible.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.
