How can a girl of twenty-one get rid of a bad reputation?
She should leave the country (see Bava Metzia 75b). I mean it. A young man I know once committed a very nasty thing – he was a yeshiva man. He was ruined! So he came to me and he asked me what he should do. I told him to leave the country, that’s all. And he should start in a new place where they don’t know him. But I told him that he better watch his step, because there’s only a limited number of countries in this world.
