Answer:  MATCHMAKER

(Shadchanit!  That’s the Yiddish term for a female matchmaker.  A lot of people think the term is Yenta, because in “Fiddler on the Roof” the matchmaker is a woman named Yente, ending in E.  A yenta, ending in A, is a busybody woman who likes to gossip.  Do I know much about Orthodox Jews?  Nope.  But I do know how to Google!  My town and neighborhood has seen a big influx of Orthodox Jews, so I have observed something that I find a little disturbing.  Many of the more orthodox Jews arrange marriages . . . for their children!  And, in the state of New York that means these children can be married off at ages 16 and 17, with parental consent.  Even worse, they can be married off at 14 and 15, with permission from a judge, as well as the parents!  They don’t like to admit it though.  They know it freaks out the Goyim, so they almost always say:  She is 18.  I genuinely try to be accepting of all people’s customs and traditions, but child marriages just strike me as wrong.  Especially when the girl/wife is still a child, but the husband is an adult.  A few states have passed laws preventing child marriages, but they get a lot of push-back from these Orthodox Jewish groups.  New York state – to my dismay – still allows it.  I didn’t begin this comment meaning to go off on a tangent, but there I went!

We’ve seen all of today’s clue words before.  However, all of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  I didn’t find any of them particularly difficult though.  I’m sure Ken could make up a little vignette using today’s clue words!  The answer letter layout was a tidy ten letter jumble.  Decently cryptic.  But as soon as I saw the word “unmarried”, and the way the cartoon was coupling folks up, the final answer came to me right away.

Fine cartoon of the tennis club pro, and the three newly created couples, at the tennis court.  They all appear to be above the age of consent!  And, as Martha Stewart would say:  “That’s a good thing.”  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
