Dear Miriam,

My son has recently separated from his wife. Some friends of mine have a single daughter who is a similar age to my son, and they want to arrange a set-up. Both of our kids have children and some other things in common from their past relationships and upbringings, but they live in different cities and my son isn't even divorced yet, so I'm not sure I want to get involved. What should I do?

Dear Miriam, Another Miriam, writing in Slate’s column, “You’re Doing it Wrong: Charoset,” says that the Hillel sandwich (korech) during the seder is matzah, maror, and charoset. In my family, we always just put horseradish and matzah together. Who’s doing it wrong? Signed, Konfused by Korech

Dear Miriam,

I met a great guy online, and we recently went on our first date. His profile didn't specify his religion or profession, so I asked him about that early on in the date. Turns out, he's studying to be Christian clergy. We still had a good time, but I want to have a Jewish home, and I feel like his career path is a deal breaker. Also, don't you think he should have been upfront about this in his profile? He's willing to give "us" a shot, but I'm not sure that I am. In case it matters, I'm not planning to have kids regardless of who I end up with.

Signed,...
