Subject:  shidduchim
Message:  Is the Dor Yesharim blood test important or required for shidduchim? If yes, who should pay for it, the parents or the child? My parents didn't want to pay, they said I should pay.
Thank you for a great website.
Reply:  The test is a necessity, but not required. BUT, almost everyone is going to request it either right in the beginning or before getting engaged. If your parents didn't want to pay, either, they are broke or they don't really care about you much. Maybe you don't want to go out with, who they want you to marry. Even though they may not want what you want.
Maybe, your parents should go ask a sheila to a Rov. I can't imagine a Rov saying not to pay for it. Unless they are from that segment of K'lal Yisroel that does not need a Rov.
