Margelit & Shmuel met on a Jewish matchmaking site called Sawyouatsinai.com. Both lived in Jerusalem at the time so they were able to meet in person to find out if they were really a good match for each other. After a short four months of dating they were wed and have been married for five and a half years now.
Margelit and Shmuel have three children who are four, three and two years of age. They find that having come from divorced homes themselves, they have an uphill battle to ensure their marriage stays together. Shmuel has a blog called Kosher Marriage where he shares tips on how to make your marriage work, the fun way. The fact that Shmuel is so devoted to making the marriage work and helping others have a long-lasting marriage is what helps Margelit become more devoted to him each day.
Shmuel is a very romantic man and when I asked Margelit what is the most romantic thing he has done for her she responded:
Shmuel does romantic things all the time. Last week, on date night, I didn’t feel well so I told him I wanted to stay in. He said he’d be a little late coming home from work. When he arrived I found out why – he left work early to drive to our favorite restaurant (which is an hour away) and bring the food home so we could have our “date” at home.
Margelit & Shmuel Hoffman have a strong devotion to each other, they work hard to ensure they do not become just another statistic in divorced couples. Meeting online was a great experience for this couple and I am honored that they have shared their story with all of us today.
