My husband is taking antibiotics and couldn’t make havdallah tonight (we do on wine) and my son wasn’t really up to it.
So I said sure, I’ll do it.
Husband got mad and got up to do it himself, saying it’s better he does it than a woman.
In general, he’s a bit misogynistic, and since I don’t have many examples of a religious man (got married at 17, and my own dad was abusive), I’m really wondering if this is an individual issue that belongs to my husband, or this is a religious issue?
Are the laws forbidding women to do certain things, such as havdallah, are really that rigid?
