Shalom Bayit – Music During the Three Weeks and the Omer
My husband is a very observant Jew in every way, wearing a kippah, davening, putting on tefillin, kosher, shomer Shabbos, etc. But there is one exception. He ignores all mourning restrictions during the Omer and 3 weeks. He has a very disrespectful attitude about them, calling them BS. He even listened to music during the year after his father’s death before I knew him and has no remorse about it. He openly disdains these laws, listening to more music than normal during these times more openly and with no shame. He goes around saying “It’s not in the Torah. Hashem won’t punish me.” Worst of all, he listens to music when I am in the car with him, thereby forcing me to listen to it also. How do I deal with this?
