Advice from friends...
Helpful or Harmful?

The next time a friend asks you if you feel so and so would be good idea for them, think more than twice before offering your opinion. Unless there is some major flaw in the person being discussed, it is not a good idea for you to make that decision for them. Think of couples you know who are married now.
If it was up to you, would you have put them together? If you cannot answer "yes" to all those couples, then I am sure you will realize that only Hashem knows who belongs with whom. So let's leave it up to the couple - and Hashem - to decide!
