    there are some excellent jewish writers out there. when you read secular literature it contaminates the mind. How good is my marriage when this fictional “husband” does so much for his “wife.” the greatest averas are explained away. meanwhile the greatest Jewish writers help a person get closer to H-Shem, understand their spouse and/or mother in law better etc.
