The Illustrated Jewish Marriage Contract. I n Judaism, a singular, written agreement is an essential element of traditional marriage. Formulated in the Talmudic Era, a Jewish marriage contract, or Ketubbah, is a progressive, prenuptial document that obligates the bridegroom to financially protect the bride in the event of divorce or his death. As biblical law permits a husband to dissolve marriage at will, the Ketubbah was established to disincentivize impulsive divorce and to ensure that a wife receives a year of monetary support upon the marriage’s termination. The contract often outlines other nuptial commitments, such as the bride’s right to shelter, food, and clothing.
