Moshiach is the best life, anyone can hope for. The rules and laws,Maimonides sets forth is a guide for every human being.
The following words are exclusively from the actual laws written by the Rambam – Maimonides and some practical lessons we can draw from them in our daily lives.
Nothing less. Divorce her, if you hate her.
The following ruling applies when a man rebels against his wife and says, "I will support her and provide her with her subsistence, but I will not be intimate with her, because she has become loathsome to me." He must increase her ketubah-marriage contract, by the equivalent of 36 barleycorns worth of pure silver each week. They may remain married without engaging in relations for as long as she desires.
If she does not desire to remain married, she may ask the court to compel him to grant her a divorce.

"Happy are those who dwell in Your house."
The more knowledge the more love…. (to know is to love?)
It is a well-known and clear matter that the love of God will not become attached within a person's heart until he becomes obsessed with it at all times ……... This was implied by the command [Deuteronomy 6:5: "Love God, your Lord,] with all your heart and all your soul.
One can only love G-d as an outgrowth of the knowledge with which he knows Him. The nature of one's love depends on the nature of one's knowledge! A small amount of knowledge arouses a lesser love. A greater amount of knowledge arouses a greater love.
Therefore, it is necessary for a person to seclude himself in order to understand and conceive wisdom and concepts which make his creator known to him according to the potential which man possesses to understand and comprehend ………………….
