A Man behind a Woman?

Daily Study of the Noahide Code of Laws

The Divine Code for February 3, 2023

Today: Page 460 - 462

Topic Chapter 6:8 - 6:11

A man should calculate his actions toward his wife, and should act with respect and love, and not in a way that is only lustful. It is forbidden for a man to force his wife to have relations, since she is not his property. Physical affection between men and woman, such as kissing and hugging, or lying together, should be done privately. A man naturally lusts for and desires forbidden relations. Therefore, it is fitting that he subjugate his inclination in this matter and behave with extra piety. A man and a woman should always distance themself form abhorrent things and from suspicion, and things that awaken thoughts of lust. For example: a man should not walk behind a woman along the street, which will cause him to contemplete her form and her manner of walking.
