Much virtual ink has been spilled in recent weeks regarding using a GET as a weapon to keep a woman an Agunah.
There was a time when Agunah meant that the husband could not be found...lost in battle or the like.
Today, Agunah has come to mean a woman whom the husband has not given a GET, and remains chained and unable to remarry.
Whereas many claim that a GET should never be used as a bargaining chip, I can understand a scenario where it may be legitimate.
Suppose a woman after several years a marriage tires of her husband, a generally caring man and wants out of the marriage. She refuses all offers of marital therapy and chooses to take the husband's house and children, poisoning them against him in the process.
Yes, it is true that a GET should never be used as a weapon, but neither should a wife resort to such action, and unfortunately many do. While I normally agree that it is wrong to withhold a GET, I can understand that sometimes you need to fight fire with fire.
