Q&A: Matchmaking According to Names

Q: Can the names of a potential couple reveal if they are indeed a good match?

A: The determination of whether to wed or not should not be based on the names of the couple. The decision to marry should be based on agreement between the couple on shared life-goals: establishing a home on the foundation of Torah, mitzvot and Chassidut – and when there is love between the two partners.

If doubts arise as to whether to marry, the couple can consult with a rabbi in order to receive deep, serious advice – not relating to the names of the couple as a determining factor.

When the couple decides to marry, we can reveal inner dimensions of their relationship through their names. But this should only be done after the couple has made the decision – not before.
