Rav Chaim Kanievsky: Is Your Wife Included in the Mitzva of V'Ahavta L'Rei'acha Komocha?

Absolutely yes says Rav Chaim Kanievsky! The Gemara in Kedushim says one must see his Kallah before getting married. If he doesn't, then after the wedding when he sees her for the first time he may find her exceedingly unattractive. She may be an embarrassment in his eyes, and cause him to violate the mitzva of loving your fellow Jew. Therefore says Rav Chaim it is clear from the gemara that the mitzva applies to your wife as well.
