A friend says: Shul can be a place where you see attractive young Jewesses married to shlubby guys, it can breed resentment, god forbid. I remember like five years ago being at shul, and noticing all these very attractive young girls, teens in form fitting non-tznius dresses god forbid, and being resentful. I thought ‘I would have stayed on the torah path’ if this was the backdrop when I was a teenager, at most there was one pretty girl and so the aesthetics got me away from torah, god forbid.
