We use the resume to make sure everything works on paper. It's basically like a prospectus.
It includes support terms, girls earning potential (RIO) etc. It's pretty sophisticated. Others base their marriage on casual meetings without delving into the real details. No wonder divorce rates are so high by them...

Wow.  So the financials are the "real details" and interpersonal chemistry is useless?  And who are "them?"  I know plenty of young divorced yeshivish couples, and I even know plenty others that are miserable but stuck.

I'm also curious how your dates went, since apparently it's assur to look at a female.

I'm a product of the yeshiva system,  as is my wife and all of both of our friends.  All yeshivish by any definition.  When we got married no one that either of us knew had a resume.  We were given a name,  basic stats,  and some references. Pictures were for baalobatishe Boro parkers. 
So I would dispute the necessity of the resume system.

That just means your old school. Nowadays, no shadchan will meet you if you don't have a resume.

100%. Although it wasn't that long ago.  But CBC made it sound like we have this sophisticated system that's הלכה למשה מסיני and if you don't give resumes you're going to end up getting divorced.

C'mon! A good trolling should never be explicitly acknowledged by the troll as such.

Yup! I got it as a present. But my wife won't let me hang it in the kitchen.  :-[
But just imagine the kugel burning only because it took her too long to calculate whether it's time to take it out of the oven...  :D

Yup. It happens to me all the time; that the kugel burns because i couldn't figure out the square root of 156.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
