Great blog post over at the Christian Men’s Defense Network.
A bit of history: Following the Babylonian captivity, it became common practice that Jewish males had to give their brides a pre-nuptial agreement, called a ketubah. This tradition is still carried on within Orthodox Judaism. The purpose of this agreement was to define the requirements for the marriage, and to dictate the minimum support a Jewish man was required to pay his ex-wife in the case of a frivolous divorce (she would get nothing in the case of adultery–in fact, she would be stoned to death). As such, this dis-incentivized the Jewish man from divorcing his wife for just any old reason: He would still have to support her, without his household being able to profit from her labor. This is illustrative of how pre-nuptial agreements worked throughout history.
