Newlywed Men to Receive One Year Deferment in Reserve Duty

The Ministerial Committee for Legislation is due to discuss a bill today (Sunday) that would defer military service in the reserves for newlywed men.

Under the bill, which was initiated by MK Avraham Michaeli (Shas), a recently-married man would not be called in to serve in the reserves during the first year of his marriage.
