Marriages are broken-up when affections are alienated in passionate extra-marital affairs. In the Talmud, however, the seductive homewrecker is Torah herself and disruption of the family is sponsored by rabbinic ideology. Students enamored of Torah abandon wives for 2, 3, 6, 12, or 24 years. Absence damages families and the Talmud criticize its own rabbinic heroes. Or, alternatively, it educates rebbetzins to become enablers? Contemporary commentators debate poignant vignettes of unhappy families disrupted by Torah.
