Marriage before Parnassah

פרשת השבוע

ת"ר אשר בנה, אשר נטע ,אשר ארש ,לימדה
תורה ד"א שיבנה אדם בית ויטע כרם ואח"כ ישא אשה
  (Sotah 44a)

When going to war the above questions were asked
in this order, to teach us priorities in life  Build a house
first, plant a vineyard and then get married.

The Satmar Rebbe, Reb Yoilish zt”l   ('ויואל משה, לה"ק ב)
writes, that this Chazal refers to a second marriage.

For the first marriage,  marriage comes first, even before
Parnasah and housing.

His proof is, The minimum age to serve in the army
was 20 years. A person who at age 20, isn’t married
is a חוטא (sinner) and wasn’t eligible to go to war.

For a 20-year-old, who never got married, these
questions would not be applicable, The Pasuk must
refer to someone who was married once before
at age 18 and is on to his second marriage.

Therefore, the Rebbe concludes that this order
in Chazal is not applicable only for a second
marriage. A Bachur getting married for the first time
need not worry about housing or Parnassah before
getting married.
