Israel is a secular state. The rules of marriage and divorce by the orthodox are primarily so secular and religious can intermarry should the occasion arise. look at the growing crime rate and drug and tattoo rates and u will see what Israeli values are compared to Jordan or Saudis. The religous ill gain by secularztion but the seculars will lose everything of value they have by the status quo. Look at the secular birth rate and u need no further answers. Byeby!
