Seriously, gotta work on punctuation - but this is awesome. :D Well... Hebrew doesn't have so much punctuation.

The 214th mitzvah is that we are commanded that a newlywed man should remain together with his wife for a full year. He shall not travel away, serve in a "conquering1 army," (as opposed to a defensive action, or conquering parts of the Land of Israel, from which none are exempt) or take on any similar obligations. Rather, he shall gladden her for a full year beginning with the wedding day.

The source of this commandment is G‑d's statement2 (exalted be He), "[When a man takes a new bride...] he must remain free for his house for one year and gladden his bride."

The details of this mitzvah are explained in the eighth chapter of tractate Sotah.3

I don't know exactly how to answer for how to see the good in abusive people. I have hair raising stories of people that... well, maybe they, once upon a time, long long ago... ah... I bet when they were a child they grabbed flowers for their mother. There... something positive.

Oh my gosh... my heart breaks for that child.

Wow... I don't even know what to do with that thought. But, I am not trying to see only good, throwing pixie dust on everyone around me, allowing for an abusive situation. I do, however, want to see good in that neighbor over there. And, if nothing else... I want to be judged with compassion and favor! So, how can I judge that person, right now, the way I want to be judged?

yes, @judy-howard And this is why I love listening to Rav. Dror. It just seems that every time I get too full of myself, or too down on myself.... His lesson helps fix that. But... I am trying to focus on a couple things. 1. I'm dust, and sometimes a bit dusty. And... there is a lot about teshuvah and forgiveness! so... I am allowed to get dusty. and 2. Be happy. I may be getting an extra measure of happiness from Adonai... because lately, even when I get down or frustrated or something, I seem to be able to get back to happiness very quickly.

Each and every person has merits and sins. A person whose merits exceed his sins is [termed] righteous. A person whose sins exceed his merits is [termed] wicked. If [his sins and merits] are equal, he is termed a Beinoni... Mishneh Torah Teshuvah chapter 3
