> Good for you! Tamar is completely vindicated in the story, so I don’t know why people persist in suggesting her actions are immoral. And it’s funny how people say unflattering things about Tamar, but they never castigate Ruth for going to the threshing floor and uncovering Boaz’s ‘feet’…
Just as a cynical guess... Because Tamar waited for the men in her family to do what they should have under the law, and when they didn't she took matters in her own hands. She didn't continue to be passive.

Which was probably more pleasing to the Almighty than to the men who write books about the Bad Women of the Bible. :)
