PAIRING PARTNERS

[22a bottom] Rabbah bar Bar Chanah quoting R’ Yochanan: It is as difficult to pair a man and a woman for marriage as it was to accomplish the splitting of the sea [since, Rashbam: Both require(d) immense praying, R’ Rosner: Both require(d) going against a specific “nature” to make it work].

Prac-T-cal Tidbits: When things are difficult to come by, we gain much more of an appreciation for them. Since the pairing of spouses is a great feat, we should learn to love and cherish our partners tremendously, while thanking Hashem for bringing us together.
