I know of a devout Jewish rabbi in medieval times who was so devoted to
studying the Torah (Old Testament Bible) that he refused to marry. He was of
such good character and such righteous intent that, in time, he was permitted
to remain single. So not all rabbis were required to be married, at least not
this one. All the same, he was clearly the exception to the rule, due to his
unsurpassed love of God and devotion to His scriptures. Could Jesus perhaps be
another exception? Best always, Douglas Richardson
